Modern & More Bike Tours Palm SpringsMountain Bike Tours

Modern & More Bike Tours Palm Springs

star-5
This is a ~2 hour bike tour of three architecturally and historically significant residential neighborhoods in South Palm Springs. Bus tours have difficulty accessing these areas, because streets are somewhat narrow and it's hard for them to turn corners -- which makes it perfect for biking! Quiet streets, no hills, constant sunshine, and very little traffic make for a great ride for novices or expert cyclists alike. Please note that bike rental is NOT INCLUDED in this tour, and you're welcome to bring your own bikes. Discounted rentals available at Big Wheel Tours. Our tour begins and ends in their parking lot. We'll explore the neighborhoods of Deepwell Estates, Twin Palms, and Indian Canyons. We'll see great examples of homes designed by William Krisel, Charles DuBois, and developments created by the Alexander Construction Company. Of course there will be frequent stops for photos and to learn details about specific homes before returning to Big Wheel Tours to turn in our bikes.

Hike Palm Springs With Amazing Views

star-5
I provide water, a snack, a backpack & a hiking pole for each hiker. We'll be hiking in the Santa Rosa & San Jacinto Mountains National Monument on Native American land on some the best trails in the area. I know these trails very well and the best lookout points along the way to enjoy some of the most beautiful views of the Palm Springs desert & far beyond. You'll be able to see desert vegetation/plants & cacti close up as we hike along the trails. You'll see from the desert valley floor below all the way up to beautiful mountain peaks, all while getting in some great exercise. I'll point out interesting landmarks along the way, like the very unique Bob Hope house, Mount San Gorgonio (the tallest mountain in So Cal), Indian Canyons & other points of interest. Now that it's winter the endangered Peninsular Bighorn Sheep have returned so maybe we'll see some, I've seen them in this area before. There will be lots of opportunities for taking beautiful scenic photos during the hike.
