KB supports Amgen Cycling Race

Happy winners with bouquets. See
race-live/photos.html for more event photos.
Kitayama Brothers supports several local community events.  A special event this year was the second stage of the Amgen Tour which ended at Cabrillo College in Aptos.  Kitayama Brothers sponsored the bouquets this year and were proud to be part of this special event. Amgen Tour of California Cycling Race came to Santa Cruz County, on Monday May 14, 2012.  Stage 2 Started in San Francisco and ended at the Cabrillo College campus in Aptos, about 10 miles from our greenhouse.  Last year 18 of the finest race teams in the world came to California to compete in the 8 Stages that cover northern and southern California.

We live and work in Santa Cruz County and it’s a wonderful place to live, a great place to grow flowers, and it’s a great place to bike.  Our good weather, beautiful scenery, and terrain that spans mountains and beaches, attracts a huge number of road bikers and mountain bikers, so it is fitting that the Tour de California passes through Santa Cruz.  And for us at KB it is great that the race comes through the day after Mothers Day, we can relax and watch the race.

Robert and I both mountain bike and appreciate the training and determination these professional road racers must have.  So we are very excited and honored that Kitayama Brothers will provide flowers for this event.
