SEA OTTER CANADA
In 2019 Sea Otter Canada joined Sea Otter Classic (Monterey, California) and Sea Otter Europe (Girona, Spain) as the third edition of the cycling festival under the iconic Sea Otter brand.
Showcasing one of Ontario’s best cycling regions, in 2021 Sea Otter Canada moves to Horseshoe Resort, just one hour north of Toronto.
In addition to races and rides of all descriptions, our ‘festival’ offers something for everyone to enjoy including the ‘Expo’ featuring the industry’s top cycling brands, bike demos, activities for kids, entertainment, food and beer. 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.
