Hello Ducatista's! Palm Springs California is home to one of the newest Ducati Owners Clubs. We ride every Sunday from "The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf" on El Paseo in Palm Desert at 7:30am. Generally we ride up Hwy 74 to Idyllwild in the San Gorgonio Mountains. We leave early to "beat the heat" that the Palm Springs area is so famous for during the summer. Rides are not hot in the mountains, and a light jacket (with protection of course) is suggested. All Ducati's are welcome, and we even let other European bikes come along, if they behave themselves. This is NOT a race up the hill. We do ride at a brisk pace, but this is not MotoGP. We ride at what is called "The Pace". English translation is this: we ride safely, but still maintain a brisk pace that allows for plenty of room between bikes so nobody's safety is at risk. Interested?
