The last leg of the Amgen Tour of California will send cyclists racing down Sunset Boulevard  through Echo Park and Silver Lake on Sunday morning.  The event may also see some car and truck owners racing to move their vehicles before Sunset Boulevard is closed to traffic and parking is banned from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Metro and Dash bus riders should also  prepare for delays and disruption as the race makes it way from Beverly Hills to Downtown Los Angeles.  Spectators planning to watch the event from the sidewalk will be treated to a relatively brief but impressive show. The competing teams of cyclists – traveling at 25 mph to 35 mph – are expected take only five minutes to pass any given point on the route.
