Transforming Active Transportation in the Coachella Valley

Welcome to the CV Link, a revolutionary new concept in active and alternative transportation. Led by the Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG), CV Link is an award-winning plan to provide access for pedestrians, bicyclists, and low-speed electric vehicles (including golf carts) on a dual pathway that largely parallels Highway 111, the busiest corridor in the valley. CV Link will enable healthier lifestyles, spur economic innovation, and make the Coachella Valley a more sustainable and appealing place to live, work and play for many generations of residents and visitors. It will bring national recognition to the Coachella Valley as a leader in environmentally friendly transportation. As bicycling and walking become more popular modes of transportation and recreation, CV Link will help to reduce deadly conflicts with motorists as well as provide a safer connection to schools, employment centers, public spaces and many valley attractions.

CV Link Open Segments

The first segment of CV Link opened on February 23, 2018 stretching from Ramon Road in Cathedral City to Vista Chino in Palm Springs. Another segment is open near Demuth Park in Palm Springs. In 2020, construction began on 20 miles of CV Link with the first 3.5 mile segment being completed in the City of Palm Desert spanning from the popular Bump and Grind trail to the College of Desert. Construction continued in the spring of 2021 with the groundbreaking of Promontory Point – a signature access point that provides shade, seating, lawn area and most importantly a bridge over the stormwater channel that links the two cities of Indio and La Quinta with a safe way for bicyclists, pedestrians and low-speed electric vehicles to travel between the two cities and connect to points throughout the Coachella Valley.

Too bad Rancho Mirage and Indian Wells had to ruin the flow for everyone.

It’s shame RM & IW can’t get on board with this project

NIMBY folks. However, when some of them are out driving the city highways and see cyclists using the bike lanes, they complain. When there's a big cycling event running through some major city roads, they complain. When they see a cyclist on the existing CV Link, they complain that cyclists are looking into their precious homes. So, here's my take: I'm a six month snowbird from Minnesota and because my doctor wants me to stay alive and healthy, he recommends I ride bike and walk. I do ride the CV Link (2.3 mi) from Vista Chino and during that ride, I go past the exclusive Escena homes and I could care less about them. My focus is on the beautiful mountains, golf course activities, gorgeous blue skies and waving to fellow cyclists. The main advantage to me is to avoid the public road traffic and leave those routes to cars and trucks. I'd sure enjoy seeing the beauty of the rest of the valley too.

I thought it was changed to bike everywhere day? I guess I was wrong.

Is there a map showing where these bikes are to lock up my bike in Palm Springs?
