As one of the "Best In The West" the 2018 Tour De Palm Springs is set to roll on February 10 from the heart of downtown Palm Springs with upwards of 10,000 riders.
Run as charity fundraiser for Coachella Valley Serving Persons In Need, CVSPIN, the event has raised over $3,000,000 during the last 20 years. As a 501(c)3 organization all proceeds stay local, benefitting hundreds of charities including United Cerebral Palsy of Inland Empire, Salvation Army and Martha's Kitchen, one of the largest providers of homeless services in Coachella Valley.
"It is a wonderful, family friendly event for all ages that represents many things that we in Palm Springs hold dear: family, fun, healthy living, exercise, bicycling, sustainability. I personally am committed to do all I can to make certain that Tour de Palm (Springs) wants to remain a partner with Palm Springs for another 20 years and beyond," Palm Springs Mayor Robert Moon said.
