Double Your Impact - Help Raise Funds for BDR in July! - ENDED

Aug 1st, 2017

Update - August 1, 2017 

Thank you to everyone who's donated to the "Double Your Impact" BDR July Fundraiser!

With your support, we've raised close to $63,000 for the BDR!

Proceeds will directly support the development of future BDR routes, specifically the MABDR (Mid-Atlantic BDR) and the CABDR-South.  The funds will also be used to continue providing vital BDR travel online resources, as well as help fund future trail access and preservation initiatives. 

Thank you to the BDR Community for your continued support!

Love what that BDR organization is doing and want to support the development of future BDR's?

At the Mojave Desert Ride Fundraiser in May, BDR supporters have pledged $40,000 to the Matching Challenge Fund.  This grant will be used to double any donation made to BDR in July!  

100% of the funds will go directly towards development of the upcoming Mid-Atlantic BDR (MABDR) and California BDR-South (CABDR-South) routes, as well as to support future access and preservation initiatives.

OUR $40,000 MATCHING FUND WILL BE USED TO DOUBLE ANY DONATION MADE IN THE MONTH OF JULY.

In addition to investing in the activities of the non-profit organization whose mission is to create one new cross-state route per year for the adventure and dual-sport motorcycles, BDR  also seeks to preserve riding opportunities and access to public lands through cooperation with land managers, and creating sustainable motorcycle tourism in small town communities along the BDR routes. 

“Keeping the gas station alive in these tiny towns is a critical element to preserving access to remote backcountry riding areas. Having local communities that rely on motorcycle tourism gives us a bigger voice to keep these remote roads open for exploring on motorcycles.”   

                            - Paul Guillien, BDR Board President

Riding areas have been under tremendous threat in recent years and few organizations have delivered success in the way Backcountry Discovery Routes by creating and preserving riding opportunities for adventure motorcycles. The goal of the ‘Double Your Impact’ July fundraising campaign is to raise funds necessary to continue development of the next two BDR projects. If fundraising goals are met, the organization expects to publish the Mid-Atlantic BDR and California BDR-South, in the next two years. 

If you want to make a difference and double your impact, make a contribution today!

The matching grant was created with private contributions from individuals who attended the organization’s Mojave Desert Ride Fundraiser earlier this year.
