River stretches with bicycle shuttle possibilities...

So the kayaking season is upon us and there is a conflict between getting out and having fun and the stay at home directives in most western states. The only way I see getting around this (short of having an open bed truck or motorcycle to shuttle with) is kayaking with people in places where bicycle shuttles are possible or solo kayaking. My hope with this forum thread is that people will suggest river stretches where these two options are possible.

I'm ready to head out to boat for the next few months. My intent is to camp solo and boat with people then bicycle shuttle. Also open to soloing up to Class III water. I'd greatly appreciate some good beta on where it is possible to boat, bicycle shuttle and camp nearby, I'm out of here. thanks in advance for your suggestions.

The San Miguel fits your bill perfectly. Camp and launch from Caddis Flats. It's an easy bike shuttle to the Beaver takeout; 8 or 9 paved miles is my guess. Same deal with the upper, from Deep Creek to Placerville.
I wouldn't consider this a destination type river but, if your passing through and it's over 500CFS, it's worth a day or two.
The Taylor is also prime for this. Dam released I think 300CFS is my cut off on this.
Have fun, keep to your self, stay safe.

Anything on the Roaring Fork. Parts of the Colorado in and around Glenwood. Parts of the upper Arkansas.

Browns Canyon on the Arkansas down to the Stone Bridge takeout is a good,easy bike shuttle. That takeout gets you a few more river miles and rapids but also is allot easier than biking up and over a mountain to get out of Hecla, the takeout above it.

Why do you want to ' Get around this ' ? Why not co-operate with ' this ' , where ' this ' means what 99% of the population of this planet want right now ? Which is a feasible, scientific and realistic plan to eliminate, or at least control, this virus and others from our societies. Are you organizing a distension of the course of actions so far ? Are your personal motives convincing enough to sway the other 99% ?



Or are you just another dick who wants to do what they want when they want ? And not give a f$%^ about the other 99% ?

So, are you just the kind of person that wants to pass judgment on others without knowing the entirety of their scenario?

Might be helpful to know where you're going to be.

I would assume he is in Flagstaff AZ or that's what it says next to his name on the post...
