CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Caliente-Bodfish Road

Ride 3.2 miles gaining 1,247’ at 7.3% average grade.

Photos and summary by PJAMM contributor Dan Razum.

We start at the intersection of Lake Isabella Blvd and Bodfish Canyon Rd.

After a short distance Lake Isabella Blvd turns into Caliente Bodfish Rd. The gradient is fairly uniform through out the climb, allowing us to get into a good climbing rhythm.

The road condition is fair and the road is a bit narrow without any shoulder. There isn't much traffic,

though, so the climb feels safe.  

Interestingly, there are few traffic signs or guardrails along this climb.

There are 3 big hairpin turns, which are not indicated by any traffic signs.

Going uphill is not a problem, but the curves can come up quickly on the descent and it is a little strange not to have any signs indicating sharp turn coming soon.  Perhaps they assume that only locals drive the road and they know

all the curves.

Other than the 3 large curves, the road is fairly straight with good sight lines.  There are several nice

views of the valley below and Lake Isabella in the distance. There also aren't too many trees along the

road so it can get hot in the summer, best to start early in the day for this climb.
