Come celebrate the final stage of the Amgen 2009 Tour of California at the Summit! Palomar Mountain is the perfect package with convenient parking, a General Store and Restaurant within 100 yards of the top of the climb.
See the battle for the King Of the Mountain title and watch the tour race past within arms reach. This is classic European style racing seen nowhere else in the US. After the racers go by come to Mother’s for live race coverage and our Mile High Block Party!
Mother’s Kitchen Restaurant will be featuring live race feed for the entire tour starting February 14. On Sunday February 22nd we convert the summit into Stage 8 Race Central. Amgen will be setting up a souvenir booth, food and supplies to go will be available as the course will be closed to bicycle only traffic. Come up early, park your car and then go pick a spot on the course to cheer for the riders as they battle up America’s premier climb.
NOTE: The CHP has informed us they will be controlling traffic and no one viewing the race at the summit will possibly be able to reach the finish line in Escondido before the racers!
As the Amgen Tour climbs up Palomar Mountain on Sunday we will be opening the restaurant at 11:30 for our VIP friends. What better way to participate in this years tour than to watch the King of the Mountain climb and then follow the rest of the race live on our big screen TV? We have prepared a special menu for the day starting with coffee and pastry on your arrival. We will hold your table throughout the day so you may come and go as you please. Due to capacity restraints seating is limited to 56 so reserve early!
