Breakdown Bikepacking Route Grand Depart
2021 is the inaugural Grand Depart of the Breakdown Bikepacking Route; Presented by Oveja Negra – FREE EVENT! This route explores the vastness of the Pine Mountain region starting at Breaks Interstate Park and heading off west towards the sunset and the infamous Wardaddy Loop. Traversing the Grand Canyon of the South, it is a showcase of the best these rugged and historic Appalachian Mountains has to offer. Superb mountain-line scenery tracing the Virginia/Kentucky border and a tradition of pure, hard adventure – this course is truly breathtaking (literally and metaphorically).
