Trey and I went to “Sea Otter Classics” a couple of weekends ago. We didn’t race. We wanted to race the dual slalom and the DH but our Joey bites took us off our bikes for a few weeks. We still had a great time watching the races and walking around to different venders. SOC is the largest bike race I have ever been to. Eye candy everywhere you look. It’s a playground for every type of cycle enthusiast. AND the best part is no one there is yelling “get off you bike.” It’s a free for all. You can ride your bike from vender to vender. It’s awesome! I highly recommend going at least once in you lifetime.
