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 ;)

The Fields, The Woods, The Farm

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.

Street-Legal Dual-Sport Routes

Don’t forget, Over And Out mixes options for those who ride completely off-road with on-road/off-road riders, so you may want to bring more than one type of bike, or just roll in on your street-legal dual-sport to moto-camp on site and explore the beautiful, historic Delaware River Towns nearby.

New Hope, PA

New Hope, PA

At this event we’ll be offering a more miid dual-sport route, one that can be DIY, self-guided. This area has so many beautiful farm roads, is a HUGE motorcycle destination, and a big tourist destination in general. We’ll be planning mapped routes for you that explore the charming local towns of New Hope, PA, Frenchtown, NJ and more.

In collaboration with the DVTR (Delaware Valley Trail Riders) we’ll be creating a map for you that you can take to explore rustic, local routes via a mellow dual-sport ride (80/20 max) and will be sharing some great local recommendations for sights and snacks!

There’s no better time of year for all of this than Autumn!!! And, with just two months to go, we have a lot to share with you. if you haven’t snagged a ticket or a lesson spot yet, get on it!

Guided Dual Sport Rides

We’re super proud to have the Del Val Trail Riders as our partners, helping us create amazing dual sport routes for this year’s Over And Out! The DVTR team knows the area well, and has not only helped us create banging routes, but key members will be supporting us as guides and sweeps!

For riders with plated dirt bikes, enduros or dual sport bikes, these rides will go out from the OAO event space and explore some awesome off-road routes in the local area. Reminder: you must have an event ticket to sign up for the dual sport rides! Get one here.

THE GUIDES

Our amazing guide this year is Marika Pamart, a passionate rider and coordinator of all-women’s track days. Marika will be leading the pack, flanked by experienced dual sport sweeps from the DVTR. You’ll be in excellent hands on this ride, 1000%!

Marika is super passionate about female riding experiences, and just as Over And Out was created to provide cross-exposure for women who ride enduro vs. dual sport, Marika also created a program called Ruts To Racelines that has the same philosophy - exposing asphalt track riders to dirt and vice-versa!

THE RIDES

FRIDAY 1 - 5pm | THE GHOST TOWN

Friday’s route will go out from OAO to the town of Centralia, PA, once a populated coal mining town until an uncontrollable underground fire broke out in the mining tunnels back in 1962, still burning to this day!

CentraliaHistory.jpg

The town went into decline, and in the 90’s the town’s buildings were condemned and the zip code officially eliminated. Since then the ground has continued to fissure and shift making it an eerie sight. The town was the inspiration for the design of the psychological horror game, Silent Hill.

What was once PA Route 61 has over time come to be known as The Graffiti Highway. Here’s a nice article about The Graffiti Highway on Forbes. And, here’s a hilarious one from Buzzfeed.

SATURDAY 9am - 4pm | MOUNTAIN OF THE SLEEPING BEAR

The town of Jim Thorpe was originally named Mauch Chunk, meaning “Mountain of the Sleeping Bear”. Nestled between beautiful ridges full of foliage, it has been referred to as “The Switzerland of America” and consistently named one of the Most Beautiful Small Towns in America!

Saturday’s dual sport ride will depart from the OAO event and cover a wide range of terrain: farm roads with sweeping views, dirt trails through the woods, rocky haul roads and more. You’ll stop along some beautiful overlooks for fun photo ops before making your way into the town of Jim Thorpe.

This ride will stop in town by about 12pm to grab lunch at Molly Maguires (lunch is not included). The restaurant is named for the Molly Maguires - a 19th century Irish secret society known for activism, but whose members were accused of crimes and executed right in the town of Mauch Chunk, now Jim Thorpe. This history remains a big piece of local Pennsylvania lore.

And on the way back you’ll stop for ice cream! haha.
