What You Can Expect

The Earthquake Canyon Bike Express

The Earthquake Canyon Bike Express

Pickup from Palm Desert hotels is available; otherwise, meet at Ralph’s supermarket in Palm Desert. Your expert guide will outfit you with a fitted bike and helmet here.

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, walkie-talkies and a cell phone will follow your group, and you'll be taken back to Palm Desert after your tour.

Awesome tour with friendly, knowledgable and enthusiastic guide. Wonderful scenery, easy cycling.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2014

It was a great day with entertaining, insightful guides. Truth be told, our two guides have inspired me to apply for their job when I'm in my late 60's, 70's! This excursion was likely the highlight of my trip.
