Motorcyclists to Take on Snowshoe

SNOWSHOE, W.Va., June 27, 2017 — Snowshoe Mountain is the region’s #1 resort for carving turns on skis. Now, motorcyclists have discovered that West Virginia’s twisty, low-traffic roads are some of the nation’s best for making turns on two wheels.

“We’ve been planning to ride West Virginia for years, and are excited to base our September Motomarathon out of Snowshoe,” said John Metzger, Motomarathon founder. “This region is tailor made for our long-distance motorcycle sport-touring format.”

The West Virginia Motomarathon is set 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, now available as an e-book on After writing Motorcycling Through Midlife in 2013, this is Metzger’s second book.
