About Backcountry Discovery Routes®
Backcountry Discovery Routes® (BDR®) is a non-profit advocacy organization that creates off-highway routes for dual-sport and adventure motorcycle travel. We have introduced a new route with free GPS tracks for the community every year since 2010 (with the exception of 2021 due to the global pandemic).
Our work includes rider education, safety campaigns and promoting responsible travel for motorcyclists traveling in the backcountry.
Our volunteer-powered organization works with agencies and land managers to keep trails and remote roads open for motorcycling.
Each route generates new tourism that delivers sustainable economic relief to less-advantaged rural communities. This creates local stakeholders who will help fight to keep access for dual-sport and adventure motorcycles in these incredible backcountry areas.
Backcountry Discovery Routes Films – Since 2010 we have produced both short films and feature length documentaries to inspire, educate and promote safety for adventure motorcycle travel in the backcountry. These productions are distributed by Touratech-USA and Butler Motorcycle Maps. The DVDs are available for purchase at motorcycle dealerships, online retail outlets and at film premiere events in major cities. Many of these productions are also available for live streaming on Vimeo and Amazon Prime. Many of the short videos can be found on YouTube.
