June 23, 2017
WINTER PARK, Colo., June 23, 2017/PRNewswire/ — Already established as Mountain Bike Capital USA™, Winter Park is also drawing attention as a national center for motorcycle touring.
“With spectacular mountain passes surrounding us on all sides, Winter Park is the perfect location for our long-distance sport-touring rides,” said John Metzger, founder of the Motomarathon Association. “Grand County and the surrounding area is becoming a Mecca for motorcycling.”
The Colorado Motomarathon is set for Sept. 8-11. For a $50 fee, participants receive precisely engineered routes for four days, averaging 300-400 miles per day.
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.
