Designed to showcase the striking contrast of Steens Mountain and the Alvord Desert, this BDR-X features a 5,000-foot elevation transition in remote Southeast Oregon. Starting and ending in Fields, Oregon (near section 1 of the Oregon BDR), the 246-mile loop can be accomplished in two days. It would be hard to find a more diverse mix of surface terrain. Gravel roads, rocky double-track, dike roads, overgrown dirt roads, and open desert playa are all combined making this experience truly unique. This 2-day loop is accessible after the snow melts and the roads open in June, but the seasonal bypasses must be used prior to August 1st.
