COVID-19 Info: A leisurely small-group bike ride is the perfect social distancing activity, right? I want you to feel comfortable venturing out and spending time with me, so I will provide hand sanitizer, wear a mask, and continually disinfect the iPad I use to show photos of the sites we'll visit.

This is a 1.5 to 2 hour bike tour of three architecturally and historically significant residential neighborhoods in South Palm Springs. Bus tours have difficulty accessing these areas, because streets are somewhat narrow and it's hard for them to turn corners -- which makes it perfect for biking! Quiet streets, no hills, constant sunshine, and very little traffic make for a great ride for novices or expert cyclists alike.

We start by renting bikes from Big Wheel Tours on S. Palm Canyon Drive.
Leaving from their parking lot, we will explore the neighborhoods of Deepwell Estates, Twin Palms, and Indian Canyons. During the tour, we'll see great examples of homes designed by William Krisel, Donald Wexler, Joseph Eichler, and developments created by the Alexander Construction Company. We'll also see the homes of some Hollywood celebrities! I like to stop at specific properties to discuss their architectural and historical details, but guests are encouraged to stop anywhere along the way to take photos. (As a result, tour duration can vary, but it's usually under 2 hours.)

I am a trained Modernism Week Architecture Tour Guide in Palm Springs, and I also do volunteer tours for PS ModCom. I've been coming to the desert for many years, and I've immersed myself in the history and culture of this town and its unique midcentury architecture. I bought a 1963 William Krisel-designed home a few years ago and gave it a new life as a bright, modernest remodeled space that was featured in HGTV Magazine. I just love this town, and I want to share it! The best way to see the details of the neighborhoods and homes is on a leisurely bike ride.

Brennans modern and more bike tour was a highlight of our trip to Palm Springs! Gentle exercise, education, and of course exquisite architecture; can’t ask for more from an activity...except extraordinary hospitality which Brennan delivers! He treated the entire group like life long friends. Brennan had great timing; seamlessly blending historical, architectural and Hollywood fun facts with ample picture taking opportunities throughout the tour. We went to three distinct neighborhoods with great details given for each. One of the participants commented that she had been coming to Palm Spring for 10 years and this was the first time she had such a personal and educational experience with the mid century modern houses. We were fortunate to join the tour just before the shelter in place order; everyone felt very safe and grateful for this fun, visually stunning outdoor activity. My final comment: don’t miss this activity; a great way to safely congregate during these trying times and beyond! Thank you Brennan!,

Very friendly and open and he has a lot of knowledge he is eager to share. Very safety minded-hand signalled every turn. We also appreciated that he was flexible in meeting our timing when it was affected by weather and then work. Highly recommended!

We are repeat customers and did this tour with Brennan last October. We wanted to go again to get a refresh on Mid Century architecture and neighborhoods in Palm Springs. It was even better the 2nd time around! I highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to learn about Palm Springs, it's architectural history and enjoy a peaceful ride through beautiful neighborhoods.

The tour was great! We rode at a relaxing pace, Brennan was knowledgeable and interesting. He spoke loud enough for everyone to hear and he catered to our individual whims. The whole experience really exceeded my expectations. It was a neighborhood immersion tour by bike and it was something special and unique. The number of modernist homes is staggering and when you're on a bike, you experience them at street level in the neighborhood, you don't get that in a car. Brennan had a lot of knowledge to share, he was such a good guide. We rented bikes from Big Wheel Bikes and they were great. Highly recommend this tour!

If you've gotten this far to be reading reviews about Brennan you should go back and book ASAP! This bike tour was so well worth it - unique, interesting, educational, active, and FUN. Brennan is very knowledgeable about the architecture, the history of Palm Springs, the neighborhoods, and more. It was a wonderful way to learn rather than being in a car or bus. The bike rental was very easy and Brennan had discount coupons. This has been a highlight of our time here in the desert!

We toured three different areas where Brennan did a terrific job of sharing his knowledge of architecture and history with us. He threw in some fun stories. A great way to see hidden Palm Springs
