Searching for the best bike route to see some great midcentury modern homes? You have come to the right spot!
MID-CENTURY MODERN BIKE TOUR, PALM SPRINGS
Difficulty – Moderate
The second desert route that we think is worth your while is a self-guided Mid-Century Modern Homes Bike Tour. This 7.39-mile route rides along mostly low-traffic streets in biker friendly Palm Springs, and is a “must-do.” The 337-foot climb is spread out, except for a challenging portion on W. Panorama Road; however, the rider gets rewarded not only in great Mid-Century Modern architecture, but also gorgeous mountain and valley views.
This bike route in the desert picks up at the Palm Springs Architecture and Design Center (1957) meandering west and north, before heading back south to end at the Oasis Office Building (1952). This Mid-Century Modern route allows riders to take in some of Palm Springs’ most notable architectural gems, including: The Burgess House (1957); Kaufmann House (1946); and The House of Tomorrow, better known as Elvis’s Honeymoon Hideaway (1960).
The Coachella Valley is a wonderful place to lead an active lifestyle and riding one of the best bike routes in the desert is just one way to experience what the area has to offer. So, whether you’re a visitor or a full-time resident of Coachella Valley, grab your bike and some water and get riding.
