Keigwins at the Track provides a safe and fun environment for riders to enjoy the performance of their modern sport motorcycles at a modest cost. Track experience is no longer a requirement. However, riders new to the track must be proficient with operating a motorcycle and must have street riding experience and a mature attitude.
Monthly twilight rides allow cyclists to experience the excitement of pedaling Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, an 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 run from 5:30–7:30 p.m., and are open to all levels of cyclists. Helmets are required and the cost is $10 per rider.
