If you are looking for a truly memorable way to explore the beauty of the desert from your Palm Springs vacation rental, hopping on a bike might be your best bet. Whether you're an experienced road cyclist, single track trail junkie, or just want a laid-back trip around town, there are biking options to match almost any desire and skill level.

Big Wheel Tours offers bike tours for beginners to experts. Both road and trail tours can be fully customized, and include a guide, snacks, drinks, a bike fit just for you, helmets and a support vehicle. In addition to custom tours, they also offer a popular 20-mile, 1,200-foot descent road ride through the heart of the San Andreas fault called "The Earthquake Canyon Tour." With no turns and light traffic, this relaxing ride offers beautiful views of Mount San Jacinto and the Coachella Valley.

If you're more comfortable doing your own thing, pick up a rental at Bike Palm Springs for a half day, full day or a whole week of solo pedaling. Their rentals include a map, touring route guide, locks, and helmets. Kids bikes are available, too, as are bike trailers for those too young to pedal for themselves. You can bike at your leisure along the Gene Autry Bikeway or circle town on the Citywide Loop. Bike racks are located throughout downtown any time you feel like taking a break or stopping to shop.

Take your bike ride to a whole new level with Sunny Cycle's 15-person party on wheels, a social outing you won't soon forget. Their pedal-powered party "bike" boasts a flat screen TV, charging stations, sound system, misters and an electric motor assist. A safety supervisor is provided, along with a driver who focuses on steering and braking for the group. Everyone pedals on this bike limousine, but the electric assist makes hills and startups a little easier.  Individual or small group tours include routes through downtown Palm Springs with stops for drinks and refreshments. (Please note: this ride isn't suitable for children younger than 10.)

Exploring the outdoors by bicycle can be an unforgettable way to take in the local scene as well as enjoy the natural scenery of the desert. Whether you are a beginner or experienced rider, Palm Springs is a great place to grab a bike and get outside to see all the desert has to offer.
