Twilight Cycling – May 9

In the midst of National Bike Month, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is hosting its popular Twilight Cycling event May 9.

Twilight Cycling, presented by Rabobank, allows bicyclists of all levels of ability to experience the 11-turn, 2.238-mile race track that is normally reserved for high-speed cars and motorcycles. The ride will run from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Helmets are required and the cost is $10 per rider. 

The May Twilight Cycling is being held prior to the American Le Mans Monterey, presented by Patron which means the race paddock will be bustling with event set up and several race teams will be joining in on the fun.

The host club for this month’s ride is Ghost Tree Racing (www.ghosttreeracing.com) and the evening’s activities will include some entertaining bicycle race activities. Water and light snacks will also be provided. Additionally, the folks from the Transportation Agency for Monterey County will be on hand to share information on Bike Week May 7-13 and Bike to Work Day May 12 (www.bike2work.com).

Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is operated by the Sports Car Racing Association of the Monterey Peninsula (SCRAMP) since its inception in 1957. A volunteer board oversees operations and works tirelessly with the many community groups who volunteer their time to help produce the world-class events.

Additional dates for 2012 include June 13; July 25; August 8; September 6; October 10; November 14 and December 12.
