After years of unsuccessful attempts at inventing a two-wheeled form of propulsion, Wilbur and Orville Bike finally realized the problem was that their prototypes were all screwed to the gymnasium floor. Achieve functional mobility with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a bike tour in the Coachella Valley from PS Bike Tours (up to an $80 value). Guests traveling before October 1 will book a preferred location at McDonald’s or Coco's Restaurant and gather there at 7 a.m. before commencing the trip. Those traveling after October 1 will depart from their select location at either 8 a.m. or 1 p.m.
Witness the multifaceted geographic marvels of the Coachella Valley thanks to PS Bike Tours' expert guide, Clotaire Castanier, who has 40 years of experience in the tour industry. While bike trains wind 1,600 feet above sea level through the buckled strata, voyagers will glimpse the spot where the Mojave and Colorado Deserts shake cactusy hands, and cycle along the Box Canyon, where tectonic plates grumpily couple to form the San Andreas Fault. Clotaire will regale groups of up to nine peddlers with information about the landscape and trivia about the birth of the Salton Sea and Coachella Valley. After gathering at the prearranged meeting spot, guests board a passenger van for transportation to the trailhead. Mount the provided bikes and don the proffered helmets to trek along the trail. The tour's passenger van, equipped with restrooms and a just-in-case laser canon, follows along to provide rides at any point to guests who need a break. At the journey's completion, the van returns to the chosen starting location.
The tour also accommodates guests with snack and water breaks to refuel and calm any startled bicycles. Expect the adventure to last about 3.5 hours from start to finish. Trekkers should wear comfortable garb, close-toe shoes, caps, sunscreen, and any impervious wizard's robes they may own.
