North East Backcountry Discovery Route

Crossing more state lines and covering more mileage than any other BDR makes the NEBDR one of the most diverse routes in the BDR series.

Riders will test their endurance and skills on this epic 1,400-mile backcountry tour of the Northeast Region up to the Canadian border. The tracks meander through seven states and nearly a dozen state forests on dirt and gravel roads, challenging seasonal and class 4 roads, and twisty tarmac. Expect scenic views, endless forest roads under a canopy of trees, rocky expert-only sections and the highest elevations in the Northeast. Every state delivers a unique experience unto itself and riders who commit to the entire route will truly feel as though they had an adventure of a lifetime.
