Women’s Motorcycle Tours announces July dates for first-ever All-Ladies Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route (COBDR) Tour
Women’s Motorcycle Tours announces the first-ever all-ladies Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route (COBDR) tour July 23-30, 2017
Majestic scenery, challenging terrain, bragging rights. The Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route offers it all traversing the state of Colorado from border to border via the path less traveled. The tour will journey North to South, adhering to the original, as-mapped-out COBDR as much as is possible. The tour will pass over some of the highest roads available to motorcyclists in the United States, several of which are over 12,000 feet.
“I’m so excited to partner with Pat Jacques of ADVWoman to offer an incredible trip like the Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route as our company’s first dual-sport tour,” said Alisa Clickenger, founder of Women’s Motorcycle Tours. “Pat and I pre-rode the COBDR together last September and we had a blast. The riding is phenomenal, the scenery breathtaking, and the route is absolutely unbeatable. Pat lives in the magnificent Colorado Rockies so her local knowledge really helps us make this a phenomenal trip for the ladies.”
The tour takes place immediately after the Second Annual woman-led ADVWoman Rally July 20-23, 2017, in Granby, Colorado. “The idea is that women will come to the rally and then ride the COBDR with us immediately afterwards. We think there’s no better way than combining training and touring to cement the skills riders learn in workshops, immediately practicing those skills in real-world riding conditions,” said Clickenger.
The Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route is one of the most respected routes an adventure rider can ride. The tour will traverse Ophir, Corkscrew, Hurricane, California, Cinnamon, Cumberland, Cottonwood, Weston and Hagerman passes, riding about 650 miles through some of the most rugged and scenic landscape in America.
The all-female staff will include experienced dual sport riders Clickenger and Jacques (a former professional motocross racer) as tour guides, offering instruction, encouragement and assistance every day of the tour. The tour is hotel-based — no camping — and maps, luggage support, a chase vehicle and all meals are included. The group is limited to ten women so there will be lots of personal attention for each rider. “It’s a chance to make new friends, develop new riding partners and participate in a life-changing experience on two wheels,” said Clickenger.
