GUADALUPE, Calif. -

Ranchers and residents came out in Northern Santa  Barbara County for their glimpse of the high speed Amgen Tour of California.

It went through farmlands and small towns after it left Santa Barbara for the Stage 5 portion of the week long competition.

In the small town of Guadalupe, many residents rang bells as the sleek bike racers came by with a "whoosh."  They were excited to see their city covered with cameras on the ground and overhead in a helicopter for the world to see.

Earlier in the day they went through wine country in the Santa Ynez Valley and curved in through Orcutt to pick up the Pacific Bike Trail on Highway 1.

The final stop was in Avila Beach in San Luis Obsipo County.

Friday the racers are in San Jose.
