After the 10-mile ride on Route 66 from Goffs to Fenner, I take note of a dirt road leading to the Providence Mountains ThumbnailsI'm back at Essex, California again, after riding 16.5 miles down historic Route 66 from Goffs, CaliforniaThumbnailsI'm back at Essex, California again, after riding 16.5 miles down historic Route 66 from Goffs, CaliforniaThumbnailsI'm back at Essex, California again, after riding 16.5 miles down historic Route 66 from Goffs, CaliforniaThumbnailsI'm back at Essex, California again, after riding 16.5 miles down historic Route 66 from Goffs, CaliforniaThumbnailsI'm back at Essex, California again, after riding 16.5 miles down historic Route 66 from Goffs, California

I could shave a few miles off today's ride by taking this road, but it would be much slower than the longer ride on pavement via Essex due to its soft texture. So I continue on Route 66 after a snack stop at the Fenner gas station.
