Bikeways of Yuma


Get out and enjoy Yuma’s sunny weather and beautiful scenery on your bike! 

The City of Yuma offers an extensive network of bikeways for residents and visitors alike.  In the past decades, bicycling has seen a rise in popularity as people of all ages seek opportunities to exercise more and reduce their impact on the environment. The City strives to provide safe and convenient facilities for cyclists of all ages, as outlined in the 2009 Bicycle Facilities Master Plan.  The City has invested in a variety of bikeways – dedicated paths, bike lanes, and designated routes – to encourage citizens to embrace this alternative mode of transportation. 

2018 Bikeways Plan

In January 2018, the City began working on an update to the Bikeways Plan by soliciting input from the public through a survey, interactive online map, stakeholder meetings, and a public open house.  In October 2018, the first draft is released for download and review by various agencies and the public.  The draft document and accompanying appendices can be downloaded via the links below.  Comments can be sent to  bikewaysplan@yumaaz.gov.  Your participation is invaluable in helping to improve bicycle facilities and programs in Yuma.
