    Anyone in past couple years experience doing this BDR and not camping?
    Yes I did research the places listed on BDR site with little luck for leg 2,3,4 - group of us, ~6 ppl.
    So just wondering anyone do the route and just went over to Mt. Home , McCall for hotels ?

    We are fairly quick riders so thinking maybe doing 225-275 per day ok for the beginning few days?

    Now that I look further............ seems we could plan on Day 1 Jawbridge to Lowman, Day 2 to Riggins, then Day 3 to Darby

    You might have better luck also posting in PNWET section. They have a IDBDR specific thread that is really active. Cheers!

    We spent the first two nights actually on the IBDR in Pine and Warm Lake.

    We actually started our ride from Montpelier on Bear Lake and spent the first night headed towards the BDR trail in Burley.

    I really enjoyed spending a night in Jarbidge which I believe is the start. One hotel/restaurant/bar was open when I was there a few years ago.

    We stayed in a motel at featherville which was nice. Next door was a really good pizza place and also there was a bar. The previous two nights we had to camp so hot shower felt good.
