While a brisk walk around a museum might burn a few calories, it’s not exactly an invigorating workout. With SA Mural Rides, however, you can actually get some solid exercise while enjoying some of our city’s finest public works of art.

The tour group, which has been especially active this year, meets at Maverick Park and rides roughly 10 miles, in a route chosen to maximize mural-viewing. The group’s final ride of 2017 will take riders by murals from Paul Carson, Nik Soupé, Shek Vega, Chris Montoya, Albert Gonzales and Scotch.

As our city grows more vibrant in the realm of public art and murals, look for unique opportunities like this to increase. For now, you may want to jump at this crash course and earn your tamales in the process.

Free, Saturday, December 23, 9:30-11:30am, begins and ends at Maverick Park, 1000 Broadway, (210) 901-8981,
