Bring The Kids to Sea Otter Classic
The Sea Otter Classic is for kids. They have everything for the little ones you can imagine they have kids races they have clinics for kids they have an Easter egg hunt. In the demo zone they have plenty of kids bikes and a lot of really cool obstacles for the kids to ride on. I remember one year my nephew spent the whole day in the demo area just riding obstacles that he had never been on before. Things like dirt jumps and ramps and plywood boxes with ramps going down to jumps etc. Another hit with the kids was the pump track that they built it's a good way for them to learn to work with their bike. So bring your kids and bring their bike and their helmet they will have a blast.
