You’re Invited: Art Lovers City Cruise & Picnic

09 Oct

You and your friends are invited to a Art Lovers City Cruise and Picnic on Saturday, October 19, 2013. Tour rolls out from the Caltrain Station in downtown Menlo Park, California at 10:35 am.

Art is best savored at a slower pace, by walking through a gallery or through a sculpture garden. When public art is sprinkled all over town, the whole city becomes an art museum and your bicycle lets you wander from gallery to gallery at a leisurely pace. On a bike, it’s easy pull over, hop off and reflect.

This 10 mile city cruise rolls through low traffic, relaxing neighborhoods in Menlo Park and Palo Alto sampling public art and then heads into Stanford University, home the world’s second largest collection of sculptures by Auguste Rodin. Twenty large bronzes, including Rodin’s massive “The Gates of Hell” grace the sculpture garden at the Cantor Center on the Stanford campus. But this is just one of three art sites we’ll visit.

The agenda is simple: we’ll cruise, stop, gaze, reflect, chat, and then picnic at the well-shaded tables at the Rodin Garden. We’ll have an artist or two along for a little color commentary and give us a little insight into the mind of an artist. So pack a picnic lunch, grab your favorite cruising bicycle and join us.

Start & Finish: The Menlo Park Caltrain station at 10:35 AM, timed for Caltrain #427 and #424 train arrivals.
Route: 10 miles on quiet streets with no hills. See map for details. Contact me for mid-ride starting points.
Please bring: Picnic lunch, water, bike and bike lock. Feel free to bring a dessert to share at our picnic.
RSVP: Please RSVP through Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, our event sponsor.
