I'm going to be traveling a lot to the Palm Springs / Palm Desert area for work and I was wondering if you guys have any suggestions on places to bike (preferably away from traffic and cars) and places to swim?

Thanks in advance!!

The best thing to do is to ride with the bike club (which btw is a lot more tri-friendly than a lot of groups.). This time of year our main rides leave at 7:30 Saturdays from the PD civic center, and break into 3 or 4 main groups. I strongly suggest that you link up with locals because the Coachella Valley has some streets and traffic that should be avoided. I ride in from Palm Springs, and I'd be happy bring people to the ride start in PD. Feel free to send me a message, and I can help hook you up. Desert Bicycle Club website

Are you on Strava? Sent you a pm. My buddy and I have a few rides we do that are low on traffic....at 5:00 am. For the pool google Palm Desert Aquatic Center. I swim there three or four times a week, great facility. Long course (50 meter) early in the morning, short course (25 yard) the rest of the day.

Thanks for the replies guys. I should have been more specific in that I would only be able to ride on weekdays in the afternoons after my meetings before heading home.
Seems like a great place for heat acclimation as well!
