MONTEREY, Calif., (March 26, 2009) â€“ To bring more on-track experiences to the fans of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, the track is opening the circuit for a bicycle ride every month starting on April 8.
Nothing beats the first time a driver goes through the corkscrew and it is an even bigger rush on a bicycle. Everyone is encouraged to come to the track with their bike and helmet to pedal with the staff on the world renowned race track. For those training for the Sea Otter Classic, itâ€™s a great opportunity to preview the course.
The ride will be from 5:30 â€“ 7:30 p.m. on April 8 and the cost will be $10 per rider. A portion of the fee will be donated to charity.
Going forward in 2009, the track will hold the monthly Twilight Bike Ride on May 20, June 17, July 22, August 19, September 16 and October 14.
