  • Hartford, CT (1888PressRelease) March 25, 2011 - The Motomarathon Association kicks off its 2011 motorcycle endurance riding season with the second annual New England Motomarathon, June 9-12. Routes are kept secret until the night before each day's ride, and participants must complete a sequence of self-recorded check-points using digital cameras over the four days, averaging approximately 400 miles per day. Day One routes will be handed out to participants at Kawasaki/KTM/Aprilia dealer Motofit, located at 10 Mill Plain Road in Danbury, at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 8th and again at 8:00 a.m. the morning of Thursday, June 9th..

    Riders will record the designated check-points on the way to Shelburne, NH, spending three nights and two days riding, checking in and out from the headquarters hotel, the Birch Bend Motolodge (www.birchbend.com), which caters to motorcyclists. Riders will return to Danbury on June 12th for the Awards Dinner at Motofit.

    The ride, designed by Routemaster Daniel Monteiro and sponsored by Motofit (motofit.com), Revolution Insurance (revolutioninsurance.net) and Butler Motorcycle Maps (butlermaps.com), will include check-points near two of the nation's biggest motorcycle rallies: Americade (americade.com) in Lake George, NY, and Laconia Motorcycle Week (www.laconiamcweek.com) in New Hampshire.

    "The Motomarathon format, now in its third season, has struck a nerve with today's long-distance riders," said Revolution Insurance Chairman Cliff La Motta. "This four-day endurance tour takes on the best backroads in the region, including the New Hampshire Notches. Revolution Insurance, Motofit and Butler Motorcycle Maps are proud to promote this highest form of motorcycle sport-touring."
