Hi--

I'm taking a well deserved vacation to Palm Springs next week, bringing my new De Rosa along, of course. I've tried to find some web resources for good road rides in the area, but haven't had much luck. Anyone have a favorite ride in the area, know of a good book? I'm looking for some good, long, challenging all day rides.

Thanks.
Oooh, you just missed the Tour de Palm Springs ...Humma Hah

103 miles and about 3900 ft of climbing. There were also shorter rides down to 10 miles in length, with about 4500 participants. There are links to the TD Palm Springs website on the popular ride calendars, or it shows up on a search engine easily.

I'll try to remember to bring in some of the material in our finisher's bags. There does seem to be a pretty active cycling community there.
