Public land occupies over 80% of Nevada, the most of any state in the U.S. This means endless dirt roads that lead riders through Nevada’s expansive deserts, open sagebrush valleys, and seemingly endless mountain ranges. Not all the best roads made it on the NVBDR, and now is your chance to experience Nevada beyond the original NVBDR Route during the winter season.
Join Curtis Cummings, Founder of Great Southwest Moto Adventures and the NVBDR Route Architect, on a ride on his favorite off-road winter routes in Nevada. Originally Curtis was going to do this ride solo but decided to offer the opportunity for the BDR Holiday Auction. It is not a typical tour, he calls it a 'ride along'. Adventure to many of the favorite destinations beyond the NVBDR. The tour is limited to four riders.
