This is a 90-minute bike tour of three architecturally and historically significant residential neighborhoods in South Palm Springs. Bus tours have difficulty accessing these areas, because streets are somewhat narrow and it's hard for them to turn corners -- which makes it perfect for biking! Quiet streets, no hills, constant sunshine, and very little traffic make for a great ride for novices or expert cyclists alike. We start by renting bikes from Big Wheel Tours on S. Palm Canyon Drive. Leaving from their parking lot, we will explore the neighborhoods of Deepwell Estates, Twin Palms, and Indian Canyons. During the 90-minute tour, we'll see great examples of homes designed by William Krisel, Charles DuBois, and developments created by the Alexander Construction Company. We'll also see the homes of some Hollywood celebrities, such as Fess Parker, William Holden, and Walt Disney before arriving back at Big Wheel Tours to return our bikes. We'll make frequent stops to discuss architectural and historical details of several specific homes.
I am a trained Modernism Week Architecture Tour Guide in Palm Springs, and I also do volunteer tours for PS ModCom. I've been coming to the desert for many years, and I've immersed myself in the history and culture of this town and unique midcentury architecture. I bought a 1963 William Krisel-designed home a few years ago and gave it a new life as a bright, modernest remodeled space that was featured in HGTV Magazine. I just love this town, and I want to share it! The best way to see the details of the neighborhoods and homes is on a leisurely bike ride.
