Forthcoming Lambeth Cyclists architecture rides August and September 2009

We have a full programme of rides coming up in August and September

Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 August 2009 Sussex Weekender
Meet 8:45 Clapham Junction for Saturday.
Come and join us either for one day or the whole weekend for an interesting ride through the Sussex countryside around Chichester, the possibility of a trip to the seaside and a visit to interesting medieval buildings.

If you come for the whole weekend we’ll be visiting the Pallant Gallery, the Cass Sculpture Park or the sea (depending on riders’ preferences and weather), many medieval buildings at the Downland Museum (and the new Grid Shell Building) as well as a lovely ride through the South Downs. This will be a leisurely ride –approximately 25 miles on Saturday and 40 miles on Sunday but we don't leave people behind. Further details including train times and meeting arrangements are available by contacting Janet Paske (janet.paske@gmail.com/ 07740 457 528).

Saturday 8 August ‘Slow’ bike ride: 5 parks, Pimlico and a picnic
Meet 11am outside Windmill Pub, Clapham Common
This ride is inspired by the slow food movement and will take in Pimlico Farmers’ market, Clapham Common, Battersea Park, Hyde Park, Green Park and St James Park where we will have a picnic. This will be a slow paced leisurely ride suitable for everyone with a total distance of around 12 miles.


Saturday 22 August One-Offs - Architectural Freaks and Fantasies.
Meeting point and timings to be finalised: likely to be 10:30-4
On this ride we ride will be seeking out buildings that can't be pigeonholed in one architectural style or another and buildings where architectural imagination ran away with itself. So expect the tasteless, the bizarre, the eccentric and the curious. Meeting point to be advertised nearer the time, the ride will last roughly from 10.30 to 4.00. See the website or contact Mark Knox (mpknox@care4free.net/07765 945530) for further details .

September’s Architecture ride is provisionally scheduled for 26 September and will look at the architecture of London’s wide range of fire stations. Details will be available nearer the time – please see the website for information
