Last year I had great luck using some of the UTBDR (Utah Backcountry Discovery Route) and linking it together with tons of other OHV trails, Forest Roads, BLM Roads, etc… to build my own pretty sweet loop around Utah (Ride Report Here:deal Ultimate Utah Adventure Route – The UTBDR and a Whole Lot More).
The route had a great mix of challenging trails and faster (easier) transit sections. This year, the hope was to create a similar style of ride, but start in Colorado, do some crisscrossing into Utah, and ultimately loop back to our starting point in Colorado. The route for this year would of course hit the popular stuff like the mountain passes (Cinnamon, Engineer, Ophir, Black Bear, Etc…) , but I was also hoping to work in some lesser traveled OHV trails, and even some Motorcycle Single Track Trail .
The finished drawn route ended up being right at 1600 miles, and I was able to get the mix of trails/forest roads/etc… that I was looking for while building the route. Would have 8 days to complete the route. Of course not everything went as planned, but we will get into that later …
4 of us went on this ride:
and Myself - Jordan (jglow)
3 of us rode WR250R’s and Terry was on a KTM 500XCW
So climb aboard, as I get this Ride Report up and running. Tons of video, and plenty of pics to sort through. I will do my best to keep it coming, but I won’t promise anything greater than a glacial pace.
We met several groups of guys from the TWT forum so I figured I would post up the ride report on here and advrider. I didn't catch anyone's screen name but if you remember seeing 3 WR's and one lonely KTM, chime in and say hi
In the meantime, here is a little teaser video from the trip .
