Palm Springs: Shadow Mountain - 48 miles / 1300' 🌵

  • Plaza Resort & Spa 2601 Golf Club Drive Palm Springs, CA, 92264 United States (map)

Come Join us for our Member* Group ride.

This “urban / Desert” ride visits most of the area communities via lesser-travelled roads. A nice climb to the Hwy 74 Visitor Center is included. After a thrilling descent we cruise down the famous “El Paseo” district—the “Rodeo Drive” of the Desert! (Hold onto your Wallet!!).😉

*Non-Members may ride one "test" ride.

Note: Due to the wide-range of fitness and ability levels among cyclists, you should load the course onto your GPS device in case you become separated from the group (ahead OR behind!)
