ROUTE DETAILS

The route is 66 miles total length, approximately 2 hours ride time, but there are so many great stops in the area, you could be out for a 4-6 hour day EASY!

Depart from our event space in bucolic Stockton, NJ and take the route along a mix of dirt and gravel roads, some primitive road, a couple shallow water crossings, but also stretches of pavement that let you open up the bike a bit as you cruise along the Delaware River.

RINGING ROCKS PARK

Calling all science nerds! Ringing Rocks is not only a great place to hike and explore, it’s famous for its glacial formations of lithophonic rocks - they ring out like a bell when struck by a hammer!

Glacial formations like this are still a bit of a science mystery but they’re also just fun to bang on. So whether you’re a geology buff, or you just have a lot of anger you’d like to get out, bring a small hammer and go on a rock-hitting trek through the park. It’s pretty cool!

EXTRA TIPS!

  1. Make sure you have a sturdy phone mount. This is the one I use.

  2. Bring along a backup phone battery just in case!

  3. You might want to bring along a spare pair of socks for after the water crossings. :)

Now get out there and have some fun!!!

Riding Options at Over And Out Moto-X

Our event this October, Over And Out Moto-X, opens the gates to another beautiful piece of private property to cater to female riders of all levels. This property features a fun motocross track, massive farm fields and some woods loops, and it’s located right in the middle of some of the prettiest Delaware River towns nestled along the NJ/PA border.

There are a lot of options for all kinds of riders, whether you’re a motocross rider, are a newer rider, a woods rider, or you want to take your street-legal dual sport on a nice camp and ride in a beautiful place this fall! Read on about the riding options at OAOMX!

The Track

Everyone can ride on the track. We’ll be running segments of ride time according to rider level, alternating “expert”, “novice”, and “everyone”, so you can enter the track and have some reassurance as to who is on the track with you. From Friday to Sunday, everyone will have ample time to ride the track.

The track features tabletop jumps, and honestly you don’t even need to jump one of these jumps. They can easily be rolled over without even leaving the ground. So they’re great for practicing your body positioning and speed and safely working your way up to catching some air. You can also just ride around anything you’re not ready for ;)

You’ll have a blast even just camping and cruising around the farm with friends. The farm has massive fields surrounding it, and trails that form a perimeter route across the entire property, plus plenty of wide open space for rolling free!

There will also be some loops through the woods that run along old stone walls that date back centuries.
