I was just wondering about parking. I know it is free but how quickly does it fill up? I don't mind walking a bit to the registration/packet pick up area, but would like to be able to park within Laguna Seca.
I'm just doing the Beginner XC Race on Friday @ 1:30 and plan to commute that morning from Santa Cruz. What happens if the parking within the complex is filled? Where do you park?
Parking changes on a daily basis. Thurs last year we were able to park in the paddock right by registration. We did this on Friday I believe also. Saturday I think was also not a problem to park there, but Sunday they would not allow parking in the paddock (it's a lot closer to the venue and XC course), so we had to park in the outer lot and it's about a 15 minute walk ? It's off of a dirt road that is closer to the DH course and some of the camping spots.
So, really it just depends on who lets you in, what gate you go in at, and how they feel at the time.
