Modern Architecture Hill Climb: Bicycle Ride

“Join architects & SFBC members David Baker and Robin Levitt and planner Rob Bregoff for a guided ride past some of the city’s most spectacular post-earthquake homes. It will look at works by Second Bay Area Tradition architects and contemporaries, including buildings by Richard Neutra, William Wurster, Gardner Dailey, Henry Hill, and Anshen + Allen. Viewing these houses through the focused lens of local architects and planners, our daily city becomes a richer, more revealed place.

Total tour time is four hours. Ride will cover 15 miles, including hilly terrain. Riders must provide their own bicycle (low gearing recommended), lock, and sufficient water, and must wear comfortable clothing with layers and a helmet. Riders will be provided with a route map, a reflective limited-edition laminated spoke card for their bicycle wheel, a souvenir T-shirt and a small snack.”
