Initial rider’s meeting takes place the evening of September 4 at 8pm at the Boulder start/stop point at the Casa Alvarez Mexican restaurant where Day 1 routes will be handed out.
For the $50 fee, participants will receive this year’s highly coveted fleece vest, a Butler Colorado map highlighting the state’s best paved motorcycle roads, and a copy of Metzger’s Motorcycling Through Midlife, a new book that shows baby boomers how to manage the dangerous adolescent urges of “midlife crisis” through the author’s personal journey on a motorcycle.
Motomarathon routes and checkpoints are kept secret until the night before each day’s ride. Participants complete a series of self-recorded checkpoints using digital cameras to photograph their badge numbers at designated landmarks.
