Follow your guide on an easy to moderate 4-hour bike ride, descending 20 miles (32 km) through the heart of the San Andreas Fault zone. From the transition zone between the Colorado Desert and Mojave Desert, wind your way through the narrow canyon walls of Box Canyon. Admire the desert landscape as you cycle along a paved road -- there are no cross roads, no turns and very little traffic, making this a relatively relaxing sightseeing experience.

You’ll be afforded views of the Salton Sea, Mt San Jacinto, the All-American Canal and the agricultural lands of the eastern Coachella Valley. Finish your tour with a visit to the Oasis Date Gardens for a refreshing date drink and a restroom break.

You’ll descend 1,200 feet (366 meters) over the course of the route. Throughout your ride, refuel with your provided bottled water and snacks including homemade cookies and granola bars. A support vehicle equipped with first-aid supplies and a cell phone will follow your group, and you'll be taken back to Palm Desert after your tour.

Great time. Guides are knowledgeable. Scenery amazing. I would highly recommend. I will say that the first 15 minutes were a little difficult as it was very windy. After that downhill smooth ride.

Out guide Steve was knowledgeable and supported our ride throughout the morning with information, water and snacks. We recommend this tour for groups or families of older kids who can ride 20 miles and are interested in the desert geology and ecology of the valley. The ride is scenic and downhill but being in decent shape helps. Steve picked us up and narrated the trip to the start point, telling us about the area and the interesting sights. Great for out of towners who have an interest in the desert terrain and the history and geology of the area. The date shakes at the end were a great touch and we enjoyed seeing the date farms as they were getting ready to harvest August
