Oct. 22/23 S. Sierra B4_the_snow_flies_ride

245 / 180 / 198, plus what looks to be a fine goat trail 25 miles long w/ 698 curves, are a few of the roads to be sampled, plus whatever roads you concoct for the northern approach to Three Rivers, CA. Here's some more copy and pasted details...

Trying to score a cabin here: http://the-riverinn.com/index.htm
let me know if your interested.


Before the snow flies S. Sierra road blast. Yeah, this a weekend/overnighter. 3-500 miles each way from L.A. or San Jose depending on your route. Aiming to hit some of the high passes on the L.A. side of the route before they close. Though I haven't mapped them out, I know there's plenty for great roads coming down from the North along the foothills for any B.A. interested parties. Overnighter will be in Three Rivers, CA. Working on accommodations. Expect somewhere around a hundred bucks for a one King or two Queen room. Gaging interest to see if I can work a break on the room cost...


Here's the suggested LA routes for Saturday Oct. 22nd/Sun. Oct. 23rd... (measured from/to 101/405 intersection, Day 1 is 350 miles including the MK yoyo. Day 2 is 400 miles.

Day 1
Day 2

If you complete the full twisty route 'plus' the *bonus* 50 mile yoyo of Mineral King Rd. at the end of the day, you get extra points...

Here's a look at Mineral King Rd...

Excellent choice of roads. Should be a good ride. Calient-Bodfish is one of my favorites and so are the Mighty 190 and Yokel Valley. I have take the route through Johnstondale between your points 6 and 7. Looks like you are going past California Hot Springs. That part should be interesting. Sherman Pass is always good. Certainly gets you away from it all. Never been to Mineral King. Might have to try that road.

Damnit, Leonard, didn't you sign the agreement before you rode C-B road?

"1) The first rule of Caliente-Bodfish is, you don't talk about Caliente-Bodfish.

2) The second rule of Caliente-Bodfish is, YOU DON'T talk about Caliente-Bodfish."



I've got friends that live down there, and visiting that road is always a must when I'm in the neighborhood.

Nice thought to keep it for ourselves, but I don' t think we have to worry about traffic jams any time soon. Caliente-Bodfish is too far from an S-bucks for that.
