tour de palm springs

It’s been snowing for the past few days here in Wisconsin and our trip to Palm Springs, California cannot be here at a better time. It will be our first time exhibiting at the Vendor Expo for the 15th annual Tour de Palm Springs and we are looking forward to being outside in the middle of February without a coat and gloves. If you are planning on doing the ride or live in the area make sure to stop by and say hi. The expo is  free and open to the public!
