MABDR Movie Premieres - U.S. Tour Dates and Locations

Jan 5th, 2018

Escape the city and discover the Mid-Atlantic Backcountry Discovery Route, a scenic dual-sport adventure on dirt, gravel and paved roads through remote parts of Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Starting in Damascus, VA, and ending in Lawrenceville, Tioga County, PA.  This 1,080-mile route primarily uses forest roads and rural country lanes through the Appalachian mountains, majestic forests, bucolic farming landscapes, Amish country, and locations that played pivotal roles in early American history.

Meet fellow adventure riders at an inspirational evening of film and adventure!  Watch the MABDR documentary at one of the upcoming movie premieres.   We are adding new dates on a daily basis, so check back soon if you don't see your location.
