This route is inspired by the Backcountry Discovery Routes movement. MotoDiscovery has selected numerous segments of the official BDR route, combined with legs of the popular Continental Divide Ride to create a unique journey with balance and mile after mile of riding pleasures. The ride presents a variety of options, allowing the rider to choose their challenge level on most days. Prior off-pavement riding experience is required. This is an adventure riding experience that calls on flexibility and ability to adjust to unforeseen conditions related to weather and environment.
This ride is well suited for dual-sport motorcycles in the 400-800cc range. Should you ride (or would like to rent) one of the larger ADV designed bikes (such as the Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L) it would be necessary to have the skills and experience to manage the performance and physical size of these machines. We recommend attending a MotoDiscovery Rider Training Tour if you would like to gain additional off-road skill and confidence.
ITINERARY DISCLOSURE: the itinerary is likely to change from tour to tour due to weather conditions, the condition of mountain passes, forest fire activity, and our ongoing research and route development. Itineraries are subject to change at any time without prior notice.
