Palm Springs Bike Path, 02-10-2015

Palm Springs has led the way in the Coachella Valley demonstrating how golf and bicycling can co-exist.  This section of bike trail runs next to Tahquitz Creek Country Club.  I rode the bike trail this morning from Country Club in Rancho Mirage back to Palm Springs.  If the amount of other riders I saw this morning is any indication of how well CV/Link will be used, it is destined to be a huge success.
Today's ride: 31 miles, Portola Loop, .
