Ride Like the Wind

Take to the open road in retro style

Greater Palm Springs CVB

Picture a winding road with more curves than Marilyn Monroe as it rises and falls beneath your feet. The 50cc motor scooter you’re commandeering hums and purrs as it hugs each turn. To your right, the majestic landscapes unfold in the distance; to your left, the mountains invite you to feel the freedom and glory of a Fellini hero or heroine. Find your ride at one of these rental locations:

SCOOT PALM SPRINGS at Ace Hotel & Swim Club offers one or two-seat scooters that you can ride around the wide-open desert. Rentals include a helmet, full tank of fuel, unlimited mileage, and a security lock.
701 E. Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs.

PALM DESERT BIKE RENTALS will fit you with a motor scooter to suit your needs. It carries electric bikes and scooters, as well as mopeds. Rent the bikes for a three-hour minimum or for up to four weeks.
73865 Hwy. 111, Palm Desert.

EAGLERIDER MOTORCYCLE RENTAL has the Vespa you need to lose your inhibitions to the wind. It carries a number of models, including the GTS 250cc. Having a blast never looked so cool.
