DESCRIPTION:

This is not a guided tour.   Riders will depart Burlington, Vermont on a custom route to Hancock NY, the outset of the North East Backcountry Discovery Route. 


Here, riders begin the epic 1300 mile NEBDR route across northern New York and New England on the most remote and sometimes rugged routes that the north east has to offer.   Riders will arrive at the terminus of the NEBDR over a week later.  A beautiful 3 hour route winds back across the mountains of northern New Hampshire and Vermont back to the lovely small city of Burlington VT, the original starting point for this amazing journey.   

 

This package gives riders an efficient option to complete the entire North East Backcountry Discovery Route without the hassle of trailering, transporting, mechanical issues, retrieving tow vehicles and several other logistical difficulties.  

 

In addition to transport and rental bike, the MotoVermont staff will answer questions about difficulty, lodging, bike packing, riding gear or just about anything pertaining to the NEBDR.  

Rental bikes are guaranteed and will be replaced if mechanical difficulty is encountered during the trip.

 

 

ABOUT THE NORTH EAST BACKCOUNTRY DISCOVERY ROUTE:

The North East Backcountry Discovery Route is the tenth route developed by the BDR organization for dual-sport and adventure motorcycle travel. Riders will test their endurance and skills on this epic 1,300-mile backcountry tour of the Northeast Region up to the Canadian border. The tracks wind through seven states and nearly a dozen state forests on dirt and gravel roads, challenging seasonal and Class 4 roads, and twisty tarmac. Expect scenic views, endless forest roads under a canopy of trees, rocky expert-only sections and the highest elevations in the Northeast. Every state delivers a unique adventure riding experience unto itself.
