Join me on this tour exploring some of the best urban murals Sacramento has to offer. Along the way we'll find out about the artists and what inspires them to create their unique pieces. See Sacramento like you've never seen it before. You'll leisurely bike through Downtown/Midtown Sacramento, hopefully finding cool streets you hadn't been down, restaurants you need to check out and coffee shops that you'll enjoy another day...or even today! Come get inspired by the creativity of these epic murals and the incredible artists that make them.
The Capitol, The Golden 1 Center, The Convention Center
You will be starting at the parking lot behind the Food Bank on 28th and R St.. If you drive over here...there is usually plenty of street parking near 27th and R St.
Places to stop along the way:
Some cool restaurants to check out along the route are Jalapeno's, The Fox and Goose, Capitol Garage, The Cafeteria 15L, Low Brau, The Porch and Zocalo's just to name a few.
Best time of day:
I personally love doing the bike tour in the morning or in the evening because the lighting is the best for taking cool photos of the murals!
Please make sure your tires are inflated and you have water. I always suggest wearing a helmet and having money with you in case you want to stop along the way for a bite to eat. Be careful on the streets and be safe.
