West Virginia Motomarathon @ Showshoe, WV
Sep 28 – Oct 1 all-day

Motomarathon will run both of its 2017 events out of Intrawest resort properties: Winter Park in Colorado and Snowshoe in West Virginia.

“Both locations are nationally known for skiing, mountain biking, and now for motorcycling,” said John Metzger, Motomarathon founder. “The twisty mountain roads of Colorado and West Virginia are tailor made for our long-distance motorcycle sport-touring format.”

The Colorado Motomarathon is set for Sept. 8-11, and the West Virginia Motomarathon for Sept. 28-Oct. 1. For a $50 fee, participants receive precisely engineered routes for four days of daylight riding.

Motomarathon routes are kept secret until the night before each day’s ride. Participants complete a series of self-recorded checkpoints, photographing their badge numbers at designated landmarks. Each rider will receive a paperback copy of Metzger’s new book, Meditation by Motorcycle – Riding Your Carbon Footprint to the Apex of Enlightenment.
