Looks like I'll be in the Yuma area mid January.
Any recommended rides?
No, Yuma is a pit.
Actually if you had a paddle tire you could hit the dunes and maybe have some fun, otherwise leave asap.
Sorry but there it is.
I HEAR that there's good off-roading around. The roads leave something to be desired.
...and Baja is just across the border at Algadones!
Lots of desert northeast of Yuma. Gotta be something worth seeing. Patton trained his Africa corps out there somewhere.
For roads, couple of decent trips toward Salton Sea/Palm Springs. For dirt, north toward Quartzsite. Lot of open BLM land and Kofa Mountains. The army proving ground north of Yuma takes up a lot of otherwise good riding areas.
Cross at Los Algodones, go down to San Felipe and points south...
Maybe pay Coco a visit while you're at it...
Who is Coco?
Coco is an ex-desert racer that has a little place on Mx-5. It is a common stop while down in Baja. It's a nice ride, good scenery
If you do a search for Coco's Corner, you will come up with a bunch of hits.
