Each month Laguna Seca opens the track to bicycles for a Twilight Ride . This month the Monterey Bay Racing Team is hosting the ride on Wednesday the 18th. After the riding they are providing a BBQ. Even though it's not on a moped getting to ride around a world famous race track for ten bucks is damn awesome.
Monthly twilight rides allow cyclists to experience the excitement of pedaling Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca’s 11-turn, 2.238-mile course. The ride is highlighted by the legendary Corkscrew turn that drops an equivalent of 5 1/2 stories. Rides generally run from 5:30–7:30 p.m. (5-7 p.m. in the winter months), and are open to all levels of cyclists. Helmets are required and the cost is $10 per rider.
The popular local cycling club will hold a one-lap time trial starting at 6 p.m. and segmented by skill levels. And when the evening concludes, participants will be able to enjoy a free BBQ, offering the ideal way to unwind after challenging the 2.238-mile world-class road circuit with its undulating terrain. Twilight Cycling evenings are open to all ages and levels of cyclists.
“This is one of our most popular rides of the year,” says Don Chapin, president of the Monterey Bay Racing Team. “It is not very often that people can ride their bike on an actual race course, free of cars, traffic and potholes. Plus, the elevation changes make the ride very engaging.”
If you don't have a bicycle then you can visit Bay Bikes for a rental as they provide rental bikes for this event. You could probably also rent one from a local bike shop as well.
