Laguna Seca Recreation Area
The largest consumer bicycle event
in North America is coming to
Laguna Seca Recreation Area!
Unbelievable! You never know what is going to happen at the RV park in the Laguna Seca Recreation Area. Now this event is coming right to you so if you are RVing here, you will be in the heart of all the action.
The Sea Otter Classics “Celebration of Cycling” hosts nearly 10,000 professional and amateur athletes and 65,000 fans. There are activities for all ages, competitors, families and spectators alike. If you want to get into riding a bike, desire to upgrade or explore all your biking options, with over 700 vendors, you will find it here at the largest consumer bicycle show in North America.
Events for the athletes include competitive and non-competitive road racing, mountain bike, cross country, dual slalom, along with circuit racing on the world-famous Laguna Seca Raceway. New this year is the "Open Road Tour", a 38-mile gravel grinder on the surrounding fire roads and trails of the Fort Ord National Recreation Area.
The Sea Otter Village, the hub of the event, comes alive with free bike demos, stunt shows, and live entertainment, plus kids’ playhouses and special activities for kids 12 and under. Other Village hotspots are an international food court, the beer and BBQ garden, and the Sea Otter exposition area. Also in the Sea Otter Village, hundreds of professional road and mountain bike athletes will be there to share their racing techniques and to sign autographs.
Special events for kids include Sea Otter Egg Hunt, Kids' Carnival, Kids’ Bicycle Races, and Kids’ Bicycle Playground.
