Architectural Bike Tour by Hot Purple Energy
February 25, 2017 | 10:00 am - 2:00 pm |
Hot Purple Energy is excited to host its sixth annual Architectural Bike Tour during Modernism Week Bike. This year we are celebrating famed local architect William Krisel by starting the tour on the newly-minted William Krisel Way, adjacent to the Ocotillo Lodge and then head south through the neighborhoods of Twin Palms, Indian Canyons, Kings Point, and Canyon View Estates. The tour is planned as a group event, however maps will be available and the route clearly marked to allow riders the opportunity to explore on their own, if they wish. The route is approximately 7 miles, with an optional 3 mile loop.
The route is relatively flat and can de done on a cruiser or road bike. Please bring your own bike, or contact Bike Wheel Tours about renting one from them at the start of the route; please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org with inquiries and to make a reservation (additional rental fees will apply).
The ride will begin with a welcome and short talk on William Krisel by the one and only modernism historian Robert Imber. There will be a designated water stop part way along the route at the Krisel Butterfly House located in the Indian Canyons neighborhood. After the tour, join your fellow riders for a post-ride party at Appetito Cal-Italian Bar and Eatery (1700 S. Camino Real).
Please RSVP for this event by e-mailing RSVP@HotPurpleEnergy.com with your name and the number in your party, so that we can be sure to have enough of our signature free tour t-shirts on hand.
