The Insider’s GUIDE


elcome to the Coachella Valley. Palm Springs and the nearby cities make up one of the most diverse and entertaining regions in the country. You think you know us for one thing, yet there is always something more. We thought we would go out on a limb and share a few favorites of the locals. These hidden gems are the kind of places we introduce to our friends. Just don’t say you heard it from us. How do you feel about sports bars? How do you feel about sports bars with over 40 HDTVs? How do you feel about sports bars with over 200+ different kinds of beers? Sounds like a real sports bar to us. Take a short trip out to La Quinta and visit The Beer Hunter Sports Bar & Grill. We won’t rave too much suffice to say, this place is the real deal. What if you want it quiet? Really quiet? Perhaps we could suggest a short trip to Desert Hot Springs to visit THE SPRING Resort and Spa. These California hot springs have been compared to the famous

healing mineral springs spas of Baden-Baden and Evian and are some of the best natural hot mineral springs in Southern California. Perhaps you’re looking for something to do on a Saturday in November. Like Saturday, November the 11th. One of the coolest shops in the Valley is celebrating 38 years in business and will be holding an open house. Since the name of the store is Kitchen Kitchen, you won’t be surprised to learn they’ll showcase a different chef sharing their talents every hour during the day. Meet our local chefs and sample, sample, sample. Check with Kitchen Kitchen in Indian Wells to get the details. Hopefully, you like our little insider’s guide. Let us know what you’re looking for and perhaps we can include it in a future issue. Enjoy your visit.

he terrain here covers a wide range of skills suitable for the city cruiser martini rider to the Cat 1 Hammerfest Roadie. Flats, climbs, and sprinting, it’s all here. Make sure you visit us for the 20th Annual Tour de Palm Springs on February 9th and 10th, 2018. Enjoy a 10, 25, 50, or 100 mile course and see the best of the valley. If you plan to ride in the desert you MUST be away of the impact the desert temperatures have on your body and your need to hydrate. DO NOT head out when the sun is high and temps are 105 degrees with only a single water bottle. Riding in the June, July, August timeframe is best done at sunrise. Temps are typically in the 80 to 90 degree range, the traffic is light, and you’ll be done in time for coffee before the sun’s heat can get to you. The roads in the valley are generally cyclist-friendly but you’ll also find a few areas where you might find it a bit tight with the traffic. There are miles and miles of good quality bike routes marked on Google Maps. Here are a few of our favorite routes in Palm Springs: Palm Springs City Loop in Palm Springs.Flat and generally city traffic. Lights react to cyclists. You can easily do 10 miles follow these bike routes and see the City of Palm Springs, some of the best Mid Century Modern neighborhoods, and close up views of the mountains. Ride south into the residential area and climb up to Indian Canyons park gates for stunning valley views. The Aerial Tram Road Climb In N. Palm Springs This is a solid climb on a two lane road so be experienced. Expect 3.7 miles at a 9% average grade. You’ll gain 1,858 feet and will know you got your work in. Top climbers like to do re-


peats of this road. The best time of day to do this ride is early AM to beat the traffic, and the descent will get your heart racing. Bike Routes in Palm Desert and Rancho Mirage The roads running East-West have the best bike routes marked. If you travel on Gerald Ford Dr, Frank Sinatra Dr, and Country Club Dr, you’ll find the best bike lanes that are generally flat, with a few hundred feet of climbing over 10 miles. The lights are far apart and sensitive to cyclists. Palms to Pine Highway 74 in Palm Desert This is a fun climb that is perfect for repeats. Expect to go 3.8 miles up at a 4% grade. You’ll gain 815 feat in this Cat 3 climb. It’s popular, and you can expect to pass or be passed as you climb. The asphalt is smooth on the generous shoulder. During the day expect heavier traffic. The view of the valley from the top is worth the trip alone. La Quinta Cove rides If you get into La Quinta, the neighborhood tucked in close to the mountains is called La Quinta Cove. There are lots of quiet residential roads and a few main roads with bike lanes marked. You’ll see lots of fellow cyclists enjoying the 3% grade ending at Bear Creek.
