New Mexico BDR

May 27, 2023 @ 7:00 am - June 4, 2023 @ 9:00 pm MDT


From the BDR website
“If you grew up watching westerns on TV, the landscapes on the New Mexico BDR will bring back memories. It’s true Wild West with the history to prove it.
You’ll ride through areas where the notorious outlaw ‘Billy the Kid’ made history by eluding authorities and see the land the same way he did because not much has changed in many of these places. Wild horses, landscapes that roll on forever and the tiniest of towns highlight this route.
Beginning in Dell City, TX you’ll enjoy the Guadalupe Rim views on your way to the high-elevation historic town of Cloudcroft. Hot springs, and lakeside camping can be found on your way into the mountains of the Gila National Forest and you’ll even be a stone’s throw from AZ before heading back to the north east toward Colorado. Highlights include Chloride Canyon, long stretches between towns and endless dispersed camping options. The last section north of Abiquiu winds through high mountains with open meadows with groves of aspen trees and is as beautiful as it gets.
Best time of year: Late May/June and September/October. July and August are monsoon season with extremely high temperatures and not recommended.”

Our plan will be to meet up at Performance Cycle Saturday morning and head south on I-25 and 285 to Roswell, 489 miles. I will find us a Hotel once we have a final count. Sunday morning we will take the opportunity to go see the caverns before heading to the BDR route and picking it up North of Dell City at El Paso Pass (named by the New Mexico Department of Redundancy Department).

No further itinerary is planned as this allows us to freedom to take each day as it comes and adapt to weather and terrain.

This is rated as the 3rd easiest BDR behind Idaho and Mid-Atlantic. All riders must be comfortable riding in sand and loose rocks. Any bike you want to bring is fine but remember we will have several hundred miles of freeway to get there and back. I will be on my Africa Twin. Please make sure you have good knobby tires and your bike is in proper working order.

Plan to camp most nights. We will find shower opportunities as often as we can and likely will hotel it a few nights for that very reason. I will probably bring enough food for most of the trip rather than rely on Restaurants.

As always if you have any questions please contact me at 970-308-0374
