Concrete ThinkingJoin SABA and guest host, SacMod, on Sunday, May 4th, 2014 for an educational bike tour of downtown Sacramento’s modern architecture and art.

Tour includes exteriors of buildings and outdoors artworks that SacMod is working to preserve.

Learn about often overlooked and under-appreciated buildings and art from a fresh perspective — and before they are gone! Different architectural styles such as Expressionism, International Style, and Brutalism will be explored.

Where and When: We meet at 9AM at the southwest corner of Fremont Park, at 15th and Q streets across Naked Lounge. Pick up some coffee across the street then do a little paperwork in the park for participation and hear the introductory talk.

We’ll roll out at 9:30AM. Ride ends at approximately 11:30AM-Noon at the new appointment-only tasting room for Ruhstaller Beer: 630 K Street. Stay to get an opportunity to taste a few of their concoctions (the purchase of beer tastings are extra). Snack food will be provided.

How much: Registering for the ride is free, with the option to make a donation to the organizers . Please get your ticket here so we know how many people to expect.

Distance and speed: Our route from Fremont Park to Ruhstaller is approximately 4 miles on downtown city streets with relatively low traffic. It’s about 1 mile back to Fremont Park from Ruhstaller. Be sure you and your bike are prepared. The pace will be sociable (10-12 mph) and we’ll have a ride leader and a sweeper to make sure we stay together and no one feels left behind.
