I'd be down for an Applachian BDR too
Thats what the Mid Atlantic BDR is.
Here's the press release:
MABDR will be a scenic ride for dual-sport and adventure motorcycles that uses dirt, gravel and paved roads to wind through remote parts of Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Starting in Damascus Virginia, and ending in Lawrenceville, PA, this 1,080-mile route, primarily uses forest roads and rural country lanes, to lead riders through the Appalachian mountains, majestic forests, bucolic farming landscapes, Amish country, and locations that played pivotal roles in early American history.
Cross Country Cycle is the official dealership of the MABDR route.
is that 1080mi. one way or round trip. Damascus and Lawrenceville are only 450 mi. apart as the crow flies. That's a lot of winding roads to get from one place to the other.
I should have been more clear, sorry...I meant something more akin to the Appalachian Trail (end to end), but for DS/ADV instead of hiking.
Would be awesome to do a BDR route from Northern PA up through the Catskills and up into New England.
Eagerly awaiting the GPX. My buddy and I will be headed down to NC via backroads in April. This should add some interesting possibilities!
I'm definitely in for riding this. I'm in NE PA and have a trailer in NC on Lake Kerr. I could head down, spend a weekend lounging on the lake on the pontoon boat, then ride home via the MABDR, sounds like I have vacation plans for 2018!

I found this on the BDR website.
A teaser map of the Mid-Atlantic BDR.
The movie and GPS file will be released in Feb. Stay tuned.
It's a bit hard to tell, but it looks like the PA leg follows Trans-PA Trail pretty closely.
SRT: It looks like the TPAT and MABDR share appx 75 miles in the Michaux Area and appx 10 miles in Bald Eagle area.
Sometimes theres only one or two "good" roads that connect one area and another. Other times one route goes left, and the other goes right,
but they end up in the same spot. : )
BDRs are always 1 way, ridden south to north... for uphill traction right
Of course you can ride the other way.
This one will have more paved involved, vs western BDRs, because of the nature of land access.
Info and updates will ramp up quickly after the new year.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah & Happy Holidays everyone.
-Premiere info so far
-Stay tuned for the free .gpx to be posted
Just have to make it until spring...just have to make it until spring...just have to make it until spring...
the Premiere in Asheville looks makeable. just over an hour away
Looking at the map proof right now.
MABDR goes thru Harpers Ferry...I love that place!
Not too far west of Gettysburg too for those who wish to visit.
Sections north of the PA Turnpike to NY look sweet! I see an expert only section
