Monterey, CA…The proverbial green flag is scheduled to wave Jan. 18 at 5 p.m. to open the ninth season of Twilight Cycling rides at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
Riders of all ages and skill levels take to the 11-turn 2.238-mile iconic road course at the Laguna Seca Recreation Area for an evening of two-wheeled fun and exercise. Twilight Cycling is one of the many community service-oriented programs that SCRAMP and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca conduct throughout the year.
The January ride is the first of 12 rides throughout the year and is scheduled to take place from 5-7 p.m. There is a $10 entry fee per rider and helmets are required to participate. SCRAMP will provide pre- and post-ride beverages free of charge to participants (sodas and waters).
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is the perfect place to train hard, ride for fun or do a little of both. Traffic flow is in one direction and 100 percent bicycles. There’s the 180 feet of overall elevation change to test your stamina and the 18 percent downhill grade at Turn 8A, and overall 109-foot drop between Turns 8 and 9, to test your determination. Throw in the spectacular rural Monterey County landscape and you have the perfect recipe for a great early evening of fun and exercise.
