Second Bay Traditions Bicycle Ride: A Tour of San Francisco Modern Architecture

"This bicycle tour led by SFBC Board Member David Baker, Robin Levitt and Rob Bregoff will focus on notable modern residential architecture outside of San Francisco’s downtown core. It will look at works by Second Bay Area Tradition architects and contemporaries, including buildings by Richard Neutra, William Wurster, Gardner Dailey, Henry Hill, Joseph Eichler and Anshen + Allen. Part of a rich architectural tradition, these buildings are also a feature of our everyday landscape. Ride will cover 20 miles (about 4 hours), including hilly terrain. Riders must provide their own bicycle (low-gearing recommended) and wear comfortable clothing with layers and a helmet. The tour will stop for lunch (lunch not included)."
