If you’re looking for an exhilarating, off-the-beaten-path activity, then set your sights on Dark Green Motorsports. Created by avid outdoorsman and seasoned motorcycle enthusiast Stephen Salzman, Dark Green Motorsports is the first electric motorcross track in the country. Nestled in the mountains of Western North Carolina, the track offers an incredible outdoor experience that’s as beautiful as it is thrilling.
Designed by experienced track racers, the 1,400 meter track has all the thrills veteran racers crave! If you’re an experienced rider who loves whoops, hops, table tops, and doubles, you’ll be sure to get your adrenaline fix at this track. But if you’re a first-timer, not to worry. The track is set up so that you can take everything at your own pace and the Zero Motorcycles used at the track can be programmed to go the speed that is most comfortable for you.
Riding our Zero Motorcycles really is as easy as…well, riding a bike! There is no clutch, transmission, gears, or foot brake. And best of all the bikes run on no fuel and are virtually silent, so you’re able to take in nature while not destroying it.
The track is open to riders seven days a week (weather permitting) and can accommodate up to eight riders at a time. Appointments are recommended and , drop-ins are welcome too, just call before you arrive to make sure the track isn’t already booked.
If you’re interested in making your trip to Dark Green Motorsports an overnighter, we can direct you to some terrific accomidations to use as a home base.
