Have you ever heard of the Amgen Bike Tour? Neither had we, but apparently itís the largest cycling race in the U.S., running over 800 miles on various courses from Sacramento to San Diego. Bike world superstar Lance Armstrong himself will also be racing in it this year.

Yet even superstar cyclists need a place to lay their weary...er,quads at the end of the race, so the Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook just north of San Diego is offering cyclists and cycling enthusiasts (we know you love it!) special packages between February 15-22.

The Amgen Package is for midweek room rates of $89, and weekend rates starting at $129. That means your Executive King Room comes with maps of the bicycle routes in the surrounding areas, including the finish line 15 miles away where all the bikers will speed through on February 22nd, not to mention 485 square feet of space, a marble wet bar, walk-in closets, high-speed internet and free parking.

Stick around the 205-acre resort and hike the surrounding mountains, and avocado and citrus groves, or speed up the I-15 for 20 minutes and youíll be in the wine country of Temecula. Then you can go tour the infamous fake Tori Spelling B&B, Chateau La Rue.

Even if you donít own any spandex, thereís still plenty to do around here.

Note: The website is currently quoting prices of $109 for mid-week stays and $149 on the weekends. But we did find the $89 rate from Feb. 17-19.
