Very much a family event, all of the routes, both riding and walking, wind through some of the most coveted real estate in the area, including Old Las Palmas and the Movie Colony.
Palm Springs, CA (PRWEB) January 22, 2016
Brad Schmett, Broker Associate with Luxury Homes by Keller Williams today announced that picture-perfect weather along with the Tour de Palm Springs Bicycle Race and the New Balance Half Marathon in Palm Desert will prove an irresistible combination, not only for event participants but also for luxury home shoppers and investors in the Palm Springs area. This 18th Annual sports gala promises plenty of action for local real estate professionals.
Originating with the first ride in 1999, the Tour de Palm Springs has raised more than one million dollars for Coachella Valley charities and become one of the most anticipated events of the season. Innovator Tim Esser originally thought he would hold a biking event that would allow local cyclists to ride 5, 15, 25 and 50 mile routes. 400 cyclists rode in that first event and the rest is history. This year the race will start in downtown Palm Springs on North Palm Canyon and there will be five different route lengths for participants along with a 1, 2 or 3 mile ride or walk as well.
Schmett recently commented, “Very much a family event, all of the routes, both riding and walking, wind through some of the most coveted real estate in the area, including Old Las Palmas and the Movie Colony. No wonder this event always is a big hit for those looking to purchase a new home or add to their real estate portfolio. My team and I are standing by to welcome new friends and neighbors throughout the week."
Bike rentals are available and detailed route and registration information is available online. Expect to see Vendor Expos, including booths from some of the charities that will be benefited. It is estimated that more than 100 local charities will receive proceeds from this popular event. The event, usually held in February, was changed this year to help accommodate the busy Palm Springs calendar of events.
