The Washington Backcountry Discovery Route (WABDR) is a scenic route across Washington State from Oregon to Canada for dual-sport, GS & adventure motorcycles and 4x4 vehicles.
This 600 mile long north-south route uses mostly un-paved backroads through the Cascade Mountains. The route was conceived and mapped by Bryce Stevens and Andrew Cull in early 2010.
The motorcycle expedition took place in late-August 2010 with 6 motorcycles (BMW and KTM) and a support 4x4 vehicle.
The GPS tracks will be available for free at www.wabdr.com and a feature length documentary will available at www.touratech-usa.com by year-end.
