    I'm planning on tackling some of the MA BDR starting tomorrow morning in Damascus. Anyone else going to be on it anywhere this weekend?

    Probably Virginia or Maryland, but possibly Oregon, Arkansas, or Georgia.

    Backcountry Discover Routes. There is a Damascus, Virginia, which at the start of the BDR route north into Virginia. Likely the location.

    Besides wondering . I threw it out there as sort of a reminder that announcements like this do better when more complete information is posted.
    Maybe we can get a Ride Report- for next time.

    Could well be the ISIS BDR at Damascus/Syria and you may need a special bike for making it through:
