How did Sacramento come to be California's capital city?

What was the city's founder, a Swiss named Johann Sutter, doing here in what once was Spanish territory?

How did his efforts to expand a fort here at the confluence of two rivers lead to the discovery of gold and the rush to come get it?

Learn the answers and more by taking this 2-hour self-guided GPS tour by bicycle. Bikes can be rented in Old Sacramento at Practical Cycle. Also, at bike racks throughout the city from a bike share program lock them if you leave them. The tour departs and finishes at the Capitol, stopping along the way at markers and structures that tell us about the founding of this city and the Gold Rush of 1849.

The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.
