GREAT TOUR!! Evon is knowledgeable about the artists, planned a great route and made sure we all had fun and were safe doing it!! We saw a wide assortment of murals. DO THIS TOUR! This tour was fantastic! It was informative, friendly, well organized and just a whole lot of fun!!! The murals are wonderful and it is great to have a guide like Evon Biondi who made sure we saw a great assortment and kept our safety in mind.

This was such a fantastic way to see the art in our city!! We went on a Sunday morning tour so the streets were free of traffic and it was nice and calm.. Evon was a wonderful guide, full of detailed artist information and took us at the pace we wanted to go. I highly recommend a bike tour!!

Evon does a great job leading you on a bike tour of the amazing murals created for WOW. Fun, informative, and mindful of the pace the group needs or wants. Hop on your bike and join her if you want an enjoyable experience exploring the amazing artwork being created around the downtown and midtown areas of Sacramento!

Lots of fun! Saw some stunning artwork and got to chat briefly with some of the artists while they were working. Highly recommended.
Took the Wide Open Walls tour with Evon. It was the 6pm tour. Many of the artists were working. Evon knew them all and we got to speak with them. Evon was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I'd go again!
It was the coolest tour I've ever done! Evon is super knowledgeable yet fun and quirky! She has a great bike route mapped out and kept us all together (somehow). The murals have truly transformed these areas of the city.

My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed the bike tour around midtown to see some art murals from Wide Open Walls. We're obviously big fans of street art and are excited that these local & International artists have given their time and talents to us here in Sacramento. It's better for our city. I'm personally a big fan of Adnate and Phlegm so I was thrilled to see their pieces.
We're grateful to be on the 9am Sunday morning tour as the streets were less crowded and the weather was perfect. Evon was an outstanding tour guide as she directed and stopped traffic for our safety. She had a road bike and could make sure everyone knew where they were going and then sprint to the front to lead. Evon shared a lot of details about each artist that made it really interesting for us. We would definitely recommend this company and are already planning another tour with friends.

My husband and I decided to sign up for the bike tour as a way to see the murals and get outdoors. Neither of us are "cyclists" and both mainly just utilized our bicycles to ride to midtown to go out, but rarely at that. I felt comfortable on my cruiser with a small group and Evon made sure everyone was together and our pace was on point for everyone. The best part was how knowledgeable Evon was with the artists and their art work. She would given some background of both. It was clear the artists really appreciated her as well as they would often say Hi as we stopped by. I definitely would go again!
What an excellent way to spend an afternoon! The Sac Cycling Tours opened up my eyes to some great masterpieces going up in Sacramento by some very talented artists. I highly suggest this to anyone looking to enjoy a leisurely ride around town and experiencing the city through a different perspective.
This was a great tour!! Without the stories behind these incredible murals, you miss so much!! Evon was so fun to be with and she obviously enjoyed this event an being with all of us! The ride is easy and Evon is very safety conscious I recommend this tour for all ages!
I had the pleasure of taking one of Evon's cycling tours during the Wide Open Walls Festival. Evon was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the artists whose work we viewed. It's a great way to see the beauty that is now a permanent part of our wonderful city!

Beth and I were glowing all weekend from the terrific mural bike tour experience. We are spreading the word and hope we can rally a group of friends to do this before the good weather runs out. Thanks so much for giving us a great start to our day.

If you live in Sacramento and have a bike, I highly recommend you do this Art tour. It's awesome! Great couple hours riding around looking at art and hearing stories about the artists! Thanks!
I went on the mural tour of Sacramento with Evon, and it was nothing but pleasant. Evon showed an unbelievable level of enthusiasm and knowledge when telling us about each mural. I thought it would simply be an excuse for a casual bike ride, but I learned a ridiculous amount about these murals that are going up and creating such an aesthetic environment in our beloved city. I will absolutely come back for another one, and I’m so happy I did this one.
I truly enjoyed the tour. I found the route very relaxing for a Sunday morning and all the info very nice, precise and interesting. Evon just takes care of you all the way and makes everything so smooth and cool. I had lots of fun and got to know and appreciate some of the beautiful works of art in the city. This made me happy (happier :) ) to live in Sacramento.
"The cycling tour with Evon was amazing! I was looking forward to getting out on the bike, riding around downtown and seeing the new murals around the city and just having a good time. I ended up leaving the tour with a whole new level of appreciation and pride for these amazing pieces of art right here in my city.
Evon had a detailed knowledge of each of the murals and shared a ton of information she had from meeting with the artists themselves and being involved with them as the murals were being painted.
From this I gained a whole new insight into the art scene in Sacramento and a much deeper understanding of the art itself. And that'snot to mention having a blast on the bike ride with my group of 8 friends!
I will definitely be coming back and bringing more friends with me!"
I just completed approx. 4.5 miles touring the murals from the Wide Open Walls festival with Sacramento Cycling Tours. We toured the latest murals by some fantastic artists! I enjoyed the exercise, meeting new people and discovering new adventures! Time for a nap!
