Motomarathon heading to Wisconsin in May

The Motomarathon Association will bring its long-distance, motorcycle sport-touring format to Wisconsin from May 29-June 1. The 2015 Wisconsin Motomarathon will start and end in Wisconsin Dells with overnights in Silver City, Mich., and Hayward, Wis.

“Our Wisconsin routemasters have designed a scenic backroad adventure, circumnavigating the entire state through its forests, prairies, rivers, lakes, hills, dales and dells,” said Motomarathon founder John Metzger. “In our quest to ride America’s great motorcycling regions, we’re excited to discover what Wisconsin has to offer.”

For a $50 fee, participants will receive a precisely engineered route for each day, and a copy of Metzger’s book “Motorcycling Through Midlife,” which he wrote to help baby boomers manage the dangerous adolescent urges of “midlife crisis” through his 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, photographing their badge numbers
at designated landmarks. For more information, visit www.motomarathon.com.
