The monthly Twilight Cycling Ride, presented by Rabobank, at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will be an evening of fun, trial races, general lapping and followed by a delicious BBQ June 18 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. The evening is hosted by the Monterey Bay Racing Team, which was formed in 2005 by a handful of cyclists interested in increasing local participation of bicycle racing.
