A reason to ride to Slanesville, WV

THE DOGTOWN 50 Hare Scrambles June 6th and 7th


Hey Guys and Girls

Green Marble Enduro Riders offers up a fun fun fun Hare Scrambles the DOGTOWN 50 on June 6th (youth) and June 7th for Adult classes.

We were there this past weekend and what a beautiful place.

Just camping and working the set up was fun, spectating will be a blast. The roads around there are dramatic with cool stop spots kind of nearby: Seneca Cavern / Rocks, Lost River, Dolly Sods, Paw Paw, Davis WV's Blackwater Falls and the endless twisty back roads all in between the steep ass mountains.


Gate and Camp fee is $10. Food truck provided plus late night feasting.





There will be great spectating, food, the grill, the bonfire, a killer night sky, lets hope, and overall good times at The Boyer's Farm Slanesville, WV. 2.5 hours from the Baltimore Washington Area

The track is perfect, loads of golf course quality grass track over rolling hills. Plenty of wide areas for easy passing with lots of flowing turns to keep the speeds down. Gorgeous wood sections with every type of terrain except no sand !!!, traction is absolute even in the grass tracks very confidence building. Long challenging but all makeable courses for the youth classes (3and 4 miles) and just triple that for the adults (10 miles ++), lots of classes, District 6 and ECEA hare scrambles series point paying event.

If new to hare scrambles this would be a great first race. Grab your MX boots Helmet goggles gloves and other protection of your choice. Come camp and hang out with us Saturday afternoon evening, we will hook you up with some pointers and such. Race the morning race in a suitable class for your bike and so on. Have a blast. Be sore until Tuesday and love every second of it.

Go to GMER.US for the flyer click on Dogtown 50 on the left

I stopped by last Saturday to check it out while riding in the area. Lots of people working to get things ready. Did a quick loop around the grass tracks and trails. Looks like it's going to be great event. Cool to see a club with family atmosphere and kids of all ages having fun! Kudos to GMER

Do it like this: 39 24 38.6N 78 37 30.8W
J R Rannells Rd.(CR-3/2), between Jersey Mountain Rd.(CR-5) & Springfield Grade Rd.(CR-3).

Click the co-ordinance above and see if that's the place.

Using those asterisks, google maps wants to go to the Philippines.

They are just a different way to write the same co-ordinance. If you copy and then paste them into google maps, they will take you to the same location.

For future reference...if you right click on a google map and choose "What's Here?", you'll get the map co-ordinance for that location.

I'd love to just be able to stop by but I'll be busy as hell at work.
