    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.:clap

    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!
