Ever wish you could burn a lap of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca? How about doing a lap with some of the top AMA Superbike and World Superbike stars? And how about following that up with a ride to the beach to hang out with the likes of Leon Camier and Martin Cardenas?
Yoshimura Suzuki is making all that come true on Thursday, September 26 when they host the Yoshimura Suzuki Industry Bicycle Ride to kick off the World Superbike race weekend’s festivities. The ride will start with a lap of Laguna Seca before heading down to the pristine coastline of the Monterey Peninsula. And it will all culminate back at the racetrack for lunch and a media question and answer session with Cardenas, Camier and their Suzuki teammates Chris Clark and Jules Cluzel.
The event is open to riders, staff, media and the public with the ride totaling roughly 24 miles. It’s a nobody gets left behind ride so don't have to be Tour de France winner Christopher Froome to take part. Sign-ups will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. with the ride scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
Co-sponsor Felt Bicycles will also be offering demo rides at Laguna, but riders must bring their own helmets and pedals in order to ride. If you want to ride a demo, get there early as only a limited amount of bicycles are available.
