Even in our high-tech world, this simple truth remains: Riding a bicycle is the most efficient mode of transportation. Some math to prove it: One-hundred calories power a cyclist for three miles (15,840 feet), but the same amount of energy powers a car for only 280 feet.
Besides being an efficient and carbon-free mode of transportation (earning the bicycle points for ecoconsciousness), biking is supposed to be fun. You can don a spandex suit and push yourself, or just wear your regular clothes for work or school and take your time – no need to even break a sweat.
The Sea Otter Classic is a grand convergence of cyclists of all ages and levels, from kids to pros, that returns to Laguna Seca from April 11-14. Our recommended mode of arrival, naturally, is by bike.
