On Essex Road, it's 6.3 miles past Interstate 40 to the nearly dead town of Essex, California at the base of the distant hills
Date: November 12, 2000
The gravelly road toward Foshay Pass rises slowly
I'm very glad that the road is proving (so far) to be mostly rideable. The sand patches at the beginning of the road made me wonder if I might be getting myself into trouble by trying to ride this road.
