Sea Otter kicks off later this week and everyone in town is in jovial spirits as this is the first time Sea Otter has occurred during its normal cadence for some time due to the pandemic. Santa Cruz invited everyone over for their Juliana Bike Night where they had all of the Juliana bikes on display.
The beer kegs were flowing all evening and a lot of taco’s were consumed at the Santa Cruz factory.
Bobble heads and some iconic Santa Cruz trinkets were on display inside.
Santa Cruz has some great green initiatives that encourage riders to commute as well as programs like Paydirt to pay it forward to help ensure trail access.
Riders came from far and wide for the festivities including gravel fans.
Cycling and dogs go hand in hand and there were plenty at the open house enjoying themselves.
The Sea Otter Classic gets underway officially on Thursday so stay tuned for our coverage from the event as usual. Check out our coverage from 2021 here to catch up on what happened during the last Sea Otter.
