Canada Rides is pleased to offer a guided BDR experience. Join us as we lead you through the NEBDR beginning August 11, 2023.

What is a BDR?

Backcountry Discovery Routes

Backcountry Discovery Routes is a non-profit advocacy organization that creates off-highway routes for dual-sport and adventure motorcycle travel.  BDRs are found all across the United States. 


The Trails

For our adventure, we will use a mix of the MA (Mid-Atlantic) and the NE (North East) BDR. There will be a mix of pavement, beginner and expert trails, with options to skip difficult sections.  

Covered Bridge


On this ride, there will be opportunities for ADV camping. You may choose to camp on some or all of the nights. Alternatively, you can book motels/cabins every night for additional comfort.
