Open air film night

We will be hosting an evening of open-air bike related films. In contrast to Somerset House's season ours will be shown in the back garden of a post-war terrace in Vauxhall.

Bike the Borough

We are supporting a Lambeth-wide event which promises a leisurely cycle around our borough. Everyone's invited to join in this family-friendly fun ride that takes in many of the best sights in Lambeth. Organised by Lambeth Council's School Travel Team, all schools and their families in Lambeth have been invited to take part! You can start your ride at any point on the specially signed route that takes in Larkhall Park, Clapham Common, Brockwell Park, Myatts Fields Park, Kennington Park and the Albert Emmbankment. The full route is a half-marathon – setting a real but achievable target of 13.1 miles, much easier by bike than by foot! There are even two options for shorter routes if the energy starts to flag.
