Desert Mountain contains approximately 5.6 miles of concrete sidewalk which cross bridges and culverts in numerous places along its course. There are a number of “pinch points” where the sidewalk narrows and drop-offs at many locations of six inches or more. The sidewalks are used by pedestrians, dog-walkers, and cyclists. All residents are advised to use caution while walking or cycling on the sidewalks and to respect their fellow residents.
The Desert Mountain Community provides a safe bicycle riding environment, with well-maintained roads that offer bicycle riders an opportunity for outdoor exercise in a closed community roadway system. We encourage and promote safe cycling and driving within the Community with educational seminars held by nationally renowned experts.
We have also produced three safety videos that address Understanding Bicycle Signage, Safe Driving and Cycling Habits, and Bicycle Safety and Equipment Tips. You can view them below.
The safety and security of our members and guests is our number one goal, and we encourage all bicycle riders and all drivers to be cautious on the roadways. Share the road and obey all signage. Keep our community safe for everyone!
