Been away for a while... looks like steelwind has the Havasu ride dates set.
Is this a big bike friendly ride?
Will we be following mostly cow-trails?
How are the water crossings, does the ferry run on Sundays?
Will this include the Wickieup race course loop A or B?
Are you doing the bonus loop at Bagdad?
Last but not least will there be donuts?

I thought hard about who to nominate to not plan this very well and steelwind is the best choice. He hasnt got those answers!
See steelwind Im behind you all the way.
I cant remember if the ferry runs sundays but I think so. I wouldnt want to cross anyway.
I found a route that heads north from 60 towards alamo but then heads west around harcuvar mnts. Beyond that we are just heading west. Do you have any input?
Cant imagine many bikes bigger than mine so its gonna have to be BB friendly.

You best get AZTom to assist you. My field of expertise does not go North much beyond Alamo. Are you going through Swansea and Parker? You will have to cross the Bill Williams at some point either upstream or downstream from Alamo Lake.
From what I understand there has been several BB rides that make loops out to Havasu & back the same day. Perhaps some of those boys can assist ya.

This was one of the crossing upstream last January! I hope this will be underwater by January of 2014!

Tom, I imagine they could use some assistance from your expertise with this adventure.

This is what I drew. Those of you that know mapsource know its not an exact science. There may be Private property, boring, gated etc.
A loop wick to havasau and back in a day sounds a little boring to me. It would be 6 hrs round trip paved. 6 hours one way would be more adventurous to me. But then again I'm slow.
