Tour de Palm Springs – Coachella Valley
February 11, 2023
The 24th annual Tour de Palm Springs offers a mid winter opportunity to get a big ride in the seasonally mild dessert mountain climate. This is one of the largest cycling charity events of its kind in America, welcoming 6,000-10,000 riders every year from 46 different states and 4 countries. The Tour de Palm Springs (and Coachella Valley) raises money for local charities in the Coachella Valley. Since 1999, the event has raised over $4,000,000 for Coachella Valley charities.
This years routes include 103, 50, 25, and 10 mile options. The 103 Mile route has lots of rolling hills and gradual climbs, but nothing to steep. Total elevation gain for the 100 mile route comes in at 3,200 feet and 1,700 feet for the 50 mile route. This is an extremely well supported event with over 2,000 volunteers, 30 SAG vehicles, and 7 food stops. Entertainment before, during, and after the ride include over 20 bands, vendor expo, post ride party, cheerleaders, and even a marching band!
