Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Sea Otter has always been about environmental responsibility. We love biking and know that it is our job to take care of the planet we love to bike on. We invite you to join us in acting responsibly and using sustainable practices.

Our main strategies are to reduce, reuse and recycle. You can participate in several ways. Bring your own reusable items to avoid single-use counterparts. Having your own cup, mug and/straw can reduce the amount of waste generated. We also encourage you to bring your own camping plate or bowl to use rather than disposables. Lastly, if there are recyclable items you need to dispose of, please ensure they get put into the appropriate recycle bin.

With these simple and easy strategies, we can greatly reduce the carbon footprint of Sea Otter. Together, we can make a big step towards sustainability and set the tone for the rest of the bike industry!

Keep That Road Beautiful

Sea Otter’s mission includes leaving this beautiful area clean, and that means along bikeways and roads in the vicinity as well as within Laguna Seca. Please partner with us by making sure all recyclables make it straight into one of the recycling cans!

A Toast to Safety
