Join your local chapter, the AIA Redwood Empire for an all ages, informative cruise, presented by the AIARE Committee on the Environment (COTE)!

  • This Downtown Bike Tour is centralized around downtown Santa Rosa with five areas of historical and architectural interest/foci. 1. Historical Architecture 2. New Architecture: Housing Development 3. New Architecture + Unbuilt Potential: all other (e.g. Caritas, Cannery) 4. Filming Locations. 5. Bonus: Public Art
  • The goals of this initial tour are 1. To increase awareness of Santa Rosa’s bikeability and demonstrate how to safely navigate city streets, neighborhoods, and connectivity (e.g. Prince Greenway Memorial, Smart path) 2. To highlight our unique historical and contemporary architecture and how they each interact in and with the community as well as some fascinating history of the area in general.
  • This event is a seven mile, family-friendly, slow cruise with safety at the forefront. We have created a map with route markers/stops and will have this available in print for riders. Tour participants will hear brief talks at each stop throughout the route from architects, historians, and a public art expert highlighting the importance and relevance of each structure and location. In addition, a representative from Bikeable Santa Rosa will speak to the current and proposed bicycle infrastructure.
