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.

Aja Mathews


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."

Alec Hsu


Edgewood Drive, Palo Alto

"It hasn't really inspired me, just because I don't bike."

JP LaMere


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."

Holly Flemming

Social Worker

Redwood City

"They're fun to watch, but not to enter myself. I'm a runner, but biking is something I could do with my husband."

Dave Phillips

Orthopedic Salesman

San Mateo

"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."
