Majestic scenery, challenging terrain, bragging rights. The Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route offers it all traversing the state of Colorado from border to border. We will journey North to South, adhering to the original, as-mapped-out COBDR as much as possible. We’ll pass over some of the highest roads available to motorcyclists in the United States, several of which are over 12,000 feet. We will traverse Ophir, Corkscrew, Hurricane, California, Cinnamon, Cumberland, Cottonwood, Weston and Hagerman passes, riding about 650 miles through some of the most rugged and scenic landscape in America on one of the most respected routes an adventure rider can ride. Let us support you all the way with an all-female industry-known tour guide team, on-tour professional motorcycle coaching and mentoring, as well as chase vehicle services. Let’s have a custom-made epic adventure together.
