One festival, 14 race disciplines. The cycling world unites to celebrate all racers – from the professional to the amateur. Races include gravel, cross country, downhill, dual slalom, short track, circuit, and road.

Soak up the views and leave your watch behind. Traverse Monterey’s iconic and breathtaking coastline and rolling hills with two Gran Fondos. Plus two new off-road tours for 2024: Robles MTB and Family Off-Road.

The latest tech is at your fingertips. Our four Ride Zones are open for kids and adults to test out the newest gear, or to finally try that bike you’ve been eying.


Visitors can watch exciting trials shows, see the newest gear and win swag while strolling the world’s largest consumer bicycle expo featuring over 900 brands. With all the autograph sessions, parties, and product demonstrations happening, no other event allows visitors such close access to their favorite brands and cycling heroes.


Supreme fun happens in the woom Kids’ Zone! The Sea Otter Classic is a family event with loads of special activities for kids. Generations have learned how to ride a bike and improve their skills at Sea Otter. All children ages twelve and under get a free Festival Pass and can compete in kids races, ride a pump track, enjoy carnival games and more!  Best of all, Skipper the Sea Otter hosts an annual Egg Hunt. Your little ones will love hunting for eggs around the woom Kids’ Zone and the chance to find eggs with prizes inside!


The Summit takes place just before the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, California. This next-level executive gathering is designed to equip and inspire attendees to drive growth and impact through their businesses and brands at a pivotal time of growth and opportunity in the outdoor recreation industries.
