Hundreds ride in 805 Criterium Bicycle Race

The Amgen Tour of California might be over, but that's not stopping cyclists on the Central Coast.

It's the Firestone Walker 805 Criterium Bicycle Race this weekend in Buellton and Lompoc.

A criterium bike race is held on a short course that loops throughout a city. Organizers say the loop course makes the race much more exciting for spectators.

Saturday's course ran through Buellton, and Sunday, cyclists will ride through Lompoc.

Over 600 cyclists are set to race, and organizers expect over 3,000 spectators.

Sunday's race kicks off at 12:15 p.m.
