Palm Springs: 37 Miles Hosted by Desert Roadrunners

November 19, 2023 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm

Three Hills – Rose, Cat Cove, Frank Sinatra

37 Miles Rolling hills and a few steep climbs

Meet: 7:30 AM

Ride-Out: 8:00 AM

Rain Cancels

 

Meet at Townie at 7:30 am, Ride out at 8. This is a great intro ride to 3 shorter type of hills: Rose (short/steep), Cat Cove (med/med) & Frank Sinatra (mile/really steep). We’ll hit the road up the NE end of town to Rose, then across town to the CV Link and down to Cat Cove. Down that hill we’ll pop over to Frank Sinatra (gear down to the lowest gear immediately!). We’ll climb 3 hills, hit our pit at Starbucks at Bob Hope, then return to Townie through Demuth Park. All these hills are do-able. Frank Sinatra is a great challenge which may require a little walking if you’re not quite ready for 11%!! Not to worry, lol, we’ll do FS another half dozen times before the season ends – it’s an excellent measure of how well you are training & your overall readiness. Newbies – don’t pass up these vital training opportunities!

All skill levels are welcome! If any ride is too much, we will work with you on making sure you have alternatives to the entire route. You will have a great bike ride. That’s a win! And remember, safety is critical. We will be following all bicycling laws and regulations as well as COVID regulations.!

GPS/TCX files available here or on the Roadrunner FB or Strava pages (members only).
