Amgen Tour of Cali' in the Classroom!!!

You know, it never ceases to amaze me how regular news sources usually seem to get to the story before me. It probably has something to do with the fact that I have a full time job and a life outside of 15 rides, but regardless it still makes me feel like a chump journ-o for bringing certain stories to you a day late...

As usual, Bike Radar reported on something awesome and I basically am just taking the story from their website and reposting it illegally here in. It seems that the Tour of California, and the company that runs it, AEG, have found that it's a good idea to roll the Tour into the classrooms of the schools that inhabit the 16 host cities.

The Tour has developed a classroom curriculum that will cover all the content that would be covered in the classroom but it will all be content that will somehow be pertinent to the tour and it's route. So, much to the dismay of school children in the 16 host cities, Math will still be taught in Math, but it will be math that is Cycling or Tour of California specific. If you're interested in finding out more information regarding the curriculum that will be taught you can check out Bike Radar or www.amgentourofcalifornia.com. Do it, because typing "curriculum" at 10:30 at night after a few beers is really really hard.
