Friday: Grab your packets at the TDPS festival and watch our Travel Page on Facebook for information.
For those joining me on the ride to Palm Springs from my house, I will be leaving promptly at 7:30am for the 62 mile, relatively flat (there is one climb) route into Palm Springs. The kit color for that ride is blue. Remember, this is a one way ride and you will need transportation back to my house on Sunday to retrieve your vehicle.
Saturday: Official TDPS ride day: kit color is Pedal Mafia White. If you do not have the new white kit, please wear the classic Champion white kit. Most will do the 56 mile ride. Our meet up spot is the lobby of the Hilton Hotel at 7:30am. We want to take our group picture before the official ride start time of 8:00am. For those doing the 102 miler, we will meet you in the lobby at 6:30am for the group picture.
Sunday: We will do a short Sunday recovery ride leaving at 8:00am from the Hilton Hotel. The ride pace will be very easy and something everyone can enjoy. We will do the same 25 mile (550ft) ride that we did last year. The kit color is Pedal Mafia Black. If you do not have the new black kit, please wear the classic Champion black kit.
Please watch our Major Taylor Los Angeles Travel Group Facebook Page for any communication while in Palm Springs. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1725483407757577
