What cyclist wouldn’t enjoy the thrill of a challenging 300-foot climb followed by an awe-inspiring descent? How about the fact that they can do this on a world-renowned race track?
Monthly twilight rides allow cyclists to experience the excitement of pedaling Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca’s 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 generally run from 5:30–7:30 p.m. (5-7 p.m. in the winter months), and are open to all levels of cyclists. Helmets are required and the cost is $10 per rider.
Each month is hosted by a different local bicycle club, organization or business, some holding competitions such as time trials or criterium races and many with off-track activities such as barbecue dinners, costume contests and giveaways.
Known around the world as one of the greatest racing facilities, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is run by SCRAMP (Sports Car Racing Association of the Monterey Peninsula) a 501(c)4 non-profit organization. Comprised of a group of dedicated and passionate volunteers, SCRAMP takes pride in providing a wonderful guest experience while simultaneously giving back to the local community.
SCRAMP volunteers work hard and long hours to support an event. Since 1957 SCRAMP has been supporting world class motorsport events on the Monterey Peninsula and we couldn’t do it without the efforts of thousands of individual and group volunteers from all over the world.
Whether you are looking for a team building event, want to network, learn soft skills such as working with the public, or you just want a way to give back to your community, we welcome you to volunteer your time and services.
