I'm wanting to plan a ride starting from the Yuma AZ area, heading north following the Colorado river on either the AZ or CA side and returning on the opposite side. I've paddled the river and I can see various dirt roads accessing the river. Has anyone ridden this? Are camping spots available? Are there dirt roads that come near the river that can be accessed? I'm anticipating riding both pavement and dirt, but any suggestions would be helpful. I'm planning going north as far as Blythe before turning back. I'd like to see Picacho, Ferguson Lake, Martinez Lake etc. and any old mining roads I can find.
