Some Concrete Thinking (and Biking)

Nice turnout of over 70 people yesterday! We hope those of you who joined SacMod (Sacramento Modern) for our “Concrete Thinking” bike tour in collaboration with Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates had a great time *AND* gained a stronger understanding of and appreciation for the buildings and art that we highlighted. If you missed it, don’t worry! You can still enjoy our expanded walking tour later this year.
