Washington Backcountry Discovery Route (WABDR)

The Washington Back-Country Discovery Route (WABDR) is a scenic route across Washington State from Oregon to Canada for dual-sport, GS & adventure motorcycles and 4×4 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 4×4 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.
