Sea Otter Classic 2017

April 20, 2017 - April 23, 2017

With all the hottest bikes, cycling brands and California sunshine … there is no ‘otter’ bike event like it!

The Sea Otter Classic 2017 website is live! Chain Reaction Cycles will be back in the big blue tent with even more bikes, bike products, fun activities, and competitions than ever before. Attracting over 300 cycling brands and 50,000 athletes and fans, Sea Otter Classic has positioned itself as the largest cycling ‘festival’ in North America.  With a few years under our belt at Sea Otter Classic, the Chain Reaction Cycles big blue tent and mini pump track have become somewhat of a staple of the exhibition area. The event runs over four days and features races in almost every discipline, a huge exhibition area filled with your favourite bike brands, and there is even camping on site; there really is something for everyone.
