One of our more popular rides...While "Zone 2" can vary from person to person, this ride is most enjoyable if you're able to hold a steady pace within a group of 19-22mph. Overall average for the ride ends up "around" 18mph. Heading out from Palm Desert Civic Park, warming up as we meander our way down Portola and across the freeway to Varner. The ride cruises past the dealerships until Jefferson and then jogs around South East to the AM/PM where we tend to regroup. After a brief rest stop generally heads up Jackson to Airport, across to Monroe and then up to Trilogy. The GPX file above shows the entire route of about 60 miles and includes the Cove but some folks choose to split off and eliminate segments. This ride can be enjoyed and cut short by heading back home via 48th ave, 52nd, and others. If doing so, ride distance can be tailored to 42 miles and up. Group riding skills will make this ride much more enjoyable if you can stay out of the breeze. No aero bars allowed. Tis ride will stop to help with mechanicals but does not slow pace for riders falling off the back.
