Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route

July 29, 2023 @ 8:00 am - August 6, 2023 @ 5:00 pm MDT



This August we are going to head to the northwest for back to back Oregon and Washington BDRs. Oregon ends where Washington starts. I have not ridden either of these routes yet and am super excited to check them out. Last weeks New Mexico BDR lit the fire under my ass to get up there! My understanding is the Oregon is one of the more challenging routes they have put together, and Washington is on the easier side. You do not need to attend both to come to either one.

Plan will be to meet up in Denver at Woolly Mammoth Park and Ride Saturday the 29th and ride to Salt Lake Area and to Winnamucca NV on Sunday. We will start the route on Monday the 31st out of Winnamucca.

Like all BDR Routes, these ARE NOT BEGINNER RIDES as they are best suited for full size ADV bikes carrying a weeks worth of provisions. If you are an intermediate rider a smaller bike might suit you best.

At the end of the Washington BDR there is some talk of hitting a few sections of the Idaho BDR North to South on the way back to Denver. Nothing is set in stone but if anyone wants to plan for that please let me know.

The Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route (ORBDR) is a 750-mile, multi-day off-pavement ride designed for adventure and dual-sport motorcycles. Starting in the high deserts of the southeast and exploring north through ancient pine forests and into the rugged mountains of the Cascade Range, challenges include lava rocks, silt, sand, and arduous mountain roads. From sagebrush steppe and hot springs, to caverns and glaciated volcanoes, riders are guided into remote territories that reveal many of the state’s natural wonders, providing prime sightseeing and recreational opportunities. With stunning views throughout and terrain that is certain to test your riding skills and endurance, the ORBDR is one of the best ways to discover the backcountry of Oregon.

The longest gap between fuel stops is 150 miles from Denio Junction NV to Plush OR. 75-100 miles in other sections.

All bikes must be plated and in good working order with fresh, knobby tires, oil changed and checked, chains in good condition and all lights working. Please bring a tool kit specific to your bike and spare front and rear tubes (even if you are tubeless- No exceptions), as well as extra RocStraps or other tie downs to hold on anything that yard sales!

Pack light, These bikes are heavy enough! We will plan to camp about 50-70% of the time and hotel every few nights as the opportunity and need arises. We will get meals and supplies in towns as we go thru/camp nearby.

Kickstands up at 9:00am if camping and 8:00am from Hotels!

To cover group operating expense and ensure those who sign up actually attend, all multi day rides have a $100 sign up cost. This is a “self guided” adventure and all riders should have gps and/or maps.

Please call with any questions 970-308-0374
