With a dizzying schedule of events, the 22nd annual Volkswagen Sea Otter Classic cycling festival welcomes more than 50,000 spectators and 10,000 athletes to revel in competitive races, leisurely bicycle jaunts, and family-friendly activities. Amateur and professional athletes attempt to break the sound barrier in mountain- and road-bike competitions, and more casual bike enthusiasts traverse scenic Gran Fondo routes. The Sierra Nevada beer and barbecue garden quells adults' cravings for brews and finger food, and kids’ activities allow tykes to stomp around in bounce houses and sniff out prize-laden eggs. Though attendees will have the opportunity to try out bikes and bike-related products from more than 300 vendors, bikes are not supplied and must be brought from home or crudely fashioned from wheels of cheese.
Sea Otter Classic
Inaugurated in 1991 as a 350-athlete competitive summit, the Sea Otter Classic has blossomed into a sprawling event with more than 50,000 spectators, 10,000 cyclists, and 300 vendors peddling bikes and gear with demos and samples of new products. Situated within Laguna Seca, the festival draws amateur and professional athletes into competitive mountain- and road-bike races, and recreational cyclists behold Monterey County's striking vistas in three Gran Fondo routes. Children's bike events plant the seeds for the next generation of cyclists with a skill-developing play zone and friendly races.
