Dana Point Grand Prix of Cycling
Religious experiences Dana Point is gonna have to keep waiting for: Jesus walking across the harbor, Noah’s long-lost ark washing ashore below the Ritz-Carlton, Jennifer Aniston rocking a Brazilian bikini at Baby Beach. This day only, a guaranteed miracle: PCH will be closed. Holy traffic cones! Instead, there’ll be some 900 entrants in the country’s top-ranked and largest cycling event (19 races; $15,000 for the winner of the men’s pro). Expect speeds up to 40 mph and, yes, a couple of crashes. There’ll also be a few hundred kids zooming around in four age divisions and some 12,000 spectators enjoying live music, demos and games, an expo, food vendors and a Marine Corps beer garden. Any Baby Beach bonus, we’ll call you—that’s what friends are for.
