Urban Hikes Author Featured at Open-to-Public Pasadena Rotary Meeting Wednesday

Published on Jul 18, 2021

Author Robert Inman, who recently published “Urban Hikes Southern California: A Guide to the Area’s Greatest Urban Hiking Adventures,” will be guest speaker this Wednesday in the Rotary Club of Pasadena’s weekly meeting, which you can now attend in-person or choose to take part in virtually.

The meeting is open to the public and is held at the University Club Pasadena, at 175 N. Oakland Ave. The cost to attend in person is $35 and an RSVP is required (see below).  Attendees must wear masks. Viewing the Zoom event is free of charge.

Bob Inman has led nearly 300 neighborhood exercise or discovery walks in Southern California within the past 12 years. More than 6,500 people have joined his events. Aside from “Urban Hikes Southern California,” he has authored numerous other books.

At Occidental College, he studied under History Professor Robert W. Winter. A Pasadena legend, Dr. Winter was responsible with David Gebhard for the seminal guidebook to architecture in Los Angeles. Fifty years after their meeting as teacher and student, Winter and Inman collaborated to produce a fully revised sixth edition of “An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles” in 2018.

A nearly lifelong resident of the City of the Angels, Inman was the 2016 awardee of the Ray Bradbury Community Walking Champion award presented by the advocacy group, Los Angeles Walks. He lives in Eagle Rock with his wife Barbara May.
