We rented bikes from the suggested vendor which were comfortable and in excellent shape- we even had a choice of fun colors!
Highly recommended for anyone who loves art/architecture, old-school Hollywood gossip, and seeing a new town firsthand by bicycle!

Best Bike And Architectural Tour Ever
Gina_M, Dec 2022
Our tour was two couples and we rented e-bikes at Big Wheel Tours which partners with our tour guide, Brennan. It was the most fabulous tour. It was easy to rent bikes, tour left from rental shop, and tour was flat (we did e-bikes but certainly would not need the assist for this tour). We stopped at many homes and took many great pics. Four was a perfect size to listen and enjoy the wonderful history and haunts of local Palm Springs architecture. Brennan was extremely knowledgeable, excited to educate and side-achingly funny the entire time. His passion for architecture and culture made the four of us yearn to learn more. We walked away with an understanding of the various eras, appreciation of home styles and felt so grateful to receive special insights that we weren’t expecting. We highly recommend this tour and booking with Brennan. You won’t regret it!

Howard_M, Oct 2022
Brennan was a terrific guide. He was extremely interesting and informative. I was very concerned about riding 6 miles in my mid 60’s not having been on a bike probably in 20 years. He reassured me that the ride was flat and there were many stops to view the architecture of the beautiful homes in the area. I would highly recommend this bike tour. Also Big Wheel Tours was courteous and helpful with our bike rentals.
Highly recommend!

Brennan is an amazing guide and you can tell that he really loves sharing his passion for architecture and design with others.
Interesting and Fun
Stacey_S, May 2022
Brennan made this tour so enjoyable! His passion for the mid-century modern neighborhoods of Palm Springs shines through. He had the most interesting facts and colorful histories to share with us. We were a bit nervous about the biking part but Big Wheel bikes expertly fit the bikes to us and the roads on which Brennan took us were easy and safe for riding. Highly recommend!
