I’m a map guy, I can sit for hours absorbing topographical lines, roads, creeks, and trails from a well made map. I also love drawing maps. For the best results I keep the maps straight forward and simple. I also recommend that you carry the appropriate county or forest map to use along with my artwork.
Located in the northeastern corner of California, Bodfish Bicycles is a retail store, focusing on the self propelled. We have been in business for over 25 years, and we look forward to getting you on your next adventure. The man behind the Business is Chuck “Bodfish” Elliot, mountain bike pioneer and Mountain Bike Hall of Fame inductee.
Bodfish is a team, not actually a person. Whenever you see the name think “Team Bodfish.” My best buddy Lisa Sedlacek and I have been exploring the backroads of California for the last 40 years. We have written, mapped, illustrated and published four bicycle guides, and two hiking and kayaking guides. These guides include: Cycling in the Shadow of Shasta, Butte Country Bicycle Journeys, California Outback, California Dream Cycling, Hiking in the Shadow of Lassen, and Silently Through the Waters. The Third member of the team is “Microfish” Colby Elliot. Colby spent some time in different disciplines of cycling over the past 20 years and now runs a film production company. He is continuing the legacy of the pen in a digital world.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
