Hot or not, the Coachella Valley is a great place to be if you are a cyclist.
It’s fun, free-ing and enlightening as a solo cyclist out on the road in the desert, but it’s even more fun when you join a community of people to share the experience with.
This Sunday there is a bike ride happening that we thought all of our fellow cycle enthusiasts of the Coachella Valley would be interested in. You don’t have to be a pro, you don’t have to be fast… you simply just have to show up and have a good time!
Below is information on how to meet some new people and go places you’ve never been:

About the Palm Springs Critical Mass:
Critical Mass is a monthly bicycle ride to celebrate cycling and to assert cyclists’ right to the road. The idea started in San Francisco in September 1992 and quickly spread to cities all over the world.
Critical Mass has a different flavor from city to city — there’s a big variety in size, respect of traffic laws, interaction with motorists, and intervention by police.
Critical Mass has no leaders, and no central organization licenses rides. In every city that has a CM ride, some locals simply picked a date, time, and location for the ride and publicized it, and thus the ride was born.
CM is an idea and an event, not an organization.
CM is intended to be a celebration, not an opportunity to cause trouble. Those who want to try to tie up traffic as much as possible and be confrontational with motorists are missing the point. We can assert our right to the road without being rude about it. Focus on the ride, not on the cars that also happen to be on the road.
Welcome ALL! Let’s Ride!
