The Sea Otter Classic is entering its 29th year and has evolved to become the premiere cycling festival in the world for both brands and consumers.

Known as a sprawling and energetic “celebration of cycling,” most of cycling’s racing disciplines are represented including mountain bike, cross country, downhill, dual slalom and short track. Road cyclists completed in circuit, criterium and road racing. Also offered are a number of non-competitive, recreational events for riders of all ages.

The Sea Otter Classic also hosts the world’s largest bike expo in North America, where hundreds of leading brands display the newest products for purchase and trial. The expo includes food, entertainment, demos, shows and activities for children.


In 2017, Sea Otter expanded to Europe with a festival in Girona, Spain. In only its second year, the 2018 event hosted over 50,000 visitors, 380 top-tier brands and 5,000 participants from over 50 different nationalities.

The festival brings the bike industry and bike lovers together and offers both a meaningful tourism experience and opportunities for fun and competitive cycling.


Set to take place at Ontario’s Blue Mountain Resort, just 90 minutes north of Toronto, Sea Otter Canada joins the ‘Classic’ and Sea Otter Europe as the third edition under the iconic Sea Otter brand from July 4th to 7th, 2019.

Sea Otter Canada will showcase Ontario’s best cycling region with 9 racing / riding events across a wide range of Dirt and Road categories.

The festival will offer something for everyone to enjoy including a large Expo area featuring more than 100 cycling brands, bike demos, activities for kids, entertainment, local craft breweries and food vendors.
Sea Otter Canada is a Celebration of all things Cycling. It’s a festival for anybody who enjoys or appreciates the bike, no matter what their age or skill level.
