Windsor is preparing for the Amgen Tour of California to come through town on Sunday, setting up a viewing area in front of the high school and using the site of the old fire station for photographers.
“The high school and town are coordinating a welcome for the riders,” Mayor Debora Fudge said.
The Windsor High School Booster Club is setting up a food and drink area in front of the high school where they will sell hot dogs, sliders and water, said Sherri Kahn, booster club concession chairwoman.
“Since they will be coming down Windsor Road, it is only two lanes, it will be a good place to watch, on the sidewalk in front of the high school,” Kahn said.
Cheerleaders also will be asking for $3 for parking in the high school lot.
The riders are expected to come through town between 11:24 and 11:34 a.m., entering on Windsor Road, turning west on Windsor River Road and then south on Eastside Road.
There will be a rolling road closure as the racers, marshals and team cars pass through, but no permanent road closures.
