Boyd Ranch, Wickenburg, Arizona

All inclusive weekend - $785 per person

Limited Number of Riders - 45 Riders

This special event will take place at The Boyd Ranch, a private 160 acres ranch in the middle of the Arizona desert with the Hassayampa River running through it.

What’s Included

  • A tight-knit and cozy gathering of ADV enthusiasts and industry professionals.
  • Daily rides through incredible desert country. Routes will be provided for different levels of adventure riding.
  • Fully catered meals through the whole weekend, from Thursday lunch to Sunday breakfast.
  • Nightly appetizers and drinks in the Boyd Ranch Saloon. 
  • Tent, Motorhome and Trailer Camping* on site (see note).
  • Clean restrooms and hot showers.
  • Nightly camp fires.
  • The BDR team will discuss the future of the Backcountry Discovery Routes and what’s coming up next. 
  • You can take part in planing the future of the BDR organization, and receive your “BDR Supporter” badge, and other mementos.

Note: Tent Camping is available on site with no reservations needed.  If you do not wish to camp, there are two options.  You may bring a motorhome or trailer and camp at the event.  There are no hook-ups, so its considered primitive camping.  Or you may stay at one of the four motels in Wickenburg.  Motel rooms are not included in the registration fee.

Due to restrictions from the Boyd Ranch, we can not allow any ATV’s, UTV’s or dirt bikes.

All motorcycles must be licensed, street legal, and dual-sport or adventure type.
