Tour De Palm Springs Bike Ride

Got Quads? That's my unofficial theme for the Tour De Palm Springs. I'm used to running events where elite runners tend to be slender with worn knees. At the Tour De Palm Springs bikers were showcasing their over-sized quads in tight biker shorts.

I went with the advice of a seasoned Tour De Palm Springs cyclist and did the more scenic 55 Mile Course instead of the Century Ride. No regrets. It was an awesome ride and I loved it.

It was a perfect day to ride. The weather was warm with a clear blue sky. A month later, I still need to even out the tan.                                


You plan and prepare for an event, before you know it, it’s over. I have only my tan, pictures, and memories as reminders of my adventures along the way.

  8. Hi Haddock,
    Yes, it was quite an amazing experience. I like to do these bicycling or running events every now and then as they are wonderful motivators to health and fitness, and challenging one's body to the next level.

    Yeah, quads are nice. That's why I'm cycling and trying to grow mine. Thanks! I know what you mean, the downhills and cars on the road made me a little nervous.
