This is a small group 2+ hour bike tour of 3 architecturally/historically significant neighborhoods in South Palm Springs, lead by either myself or my expert assistant guide, Tim. You'll be biking on quiet streets, no hills, constant sunshine, & very little traffic. All of which makes for a great ride for novices or expert cyclists alike.
Note: Bikes are NOT INCLUDED, so please bring your own, or you may rent from Big Wheel Tours on S Palm Canyon.
Leaving from their parking lot, we’ll explore the neighborhoods of Deepwell Estates, Twin Palms, & Indian Canyons. We’ll see great examples of homes designed by Krisel, Wexler, Eichler, & built by the Alexander Construction Company. We'll also see the homes of some Hollywood celebrities. We’ll stop at specific homes to discuss their architectural & historical details, but you're encouraged to stop anywhere along the way to take photos. So, duration can vary, but it's usually just over 2 hours. Please arrive early--we will wait 15 min for late guests.
Please note: This tour is designed for serious architecture and history fans, with a lot of academic-level information and detail. It may not be the most enjoyable tour for some children.
COVID Safety Update: Masks are not required for fully vaccinated guests while biking outdoors. Please wear a mask while inside Big Wheel Tours. Both Brennan & Tim have been fully vaccinated!
