Has the Amgen Tour of California and other biking competitions inspired you to bike more?
Asked on California Avenue and at Town and Country shopping center.
Park Boulevard, Palo Alto
"I can't say I've been inspired by the race, but I definitely have been (inspired) by people in my life who've biked long distances."
Edgewood Drive, Palo Alto
"It hasn't really inspired me, just because I don't bike."
Multiple residences in the Bay Area
"I already bike a lot, so I don't think it has pushed me to bike more. It was cool to see (biking) elevated to that level. Those guys are in a whole different league."
"They're fun to watch, but not to enter myself. I'm a runner, but biking is something I could do with my husband."
"I bike, but not for competition, I like to do it for fun with my friends. I do trails because it's safer, less cars."
