Lambeth Cyclists Architecture Ride Saturday 18 August 2012: South London sporting venues

On Saturday 18 August 2012 join us on a tour of South London sporting venues. We will show how South London could have hosted the Austerity Olympics. Herne Hill Velodrome poster on lambethcyclists.org.uk

We won't be as fast as Mark Cavendish or Lizzie Armitstead, but we invite you to join  us on a leisurely ride around a few of the multitude of sporting venues that exist within three miles of Brockwell Park.

From a Previous Olympic venue where a certain Mr Wiggins started his training to modern indoor facilities where possible stars of the future train today, there are just about enough venues to host all Olympic sports!

No Olympic car lanes required, just some imagination!

Meet at the cafe on the hill in Brockwell Park, SE24  at 10:15am for a 10:30 start. The lido is near by if you fancy a swim beforehand
Finish in North Lambeth approx 3pm.

Lambeth Cyclists cross Abbey Road

On Saturday Lambeth Cyclists enjoyed a ride around London's musical, dramatic and poetic venues. Our latest architecture ride looked at the part that London's buildings have played in inspiring and enabling artisitic works to be prooduced including crossing that famous zebra crossing outside the Abbey Road Studios in St John's Wood. Thanks to Holly and David Garrard for organising this fascinating ride.

Sign up for cycle maintenance classes starting 11 September 2012

Depressing as it may seem as we sit in the summer sun autumn is just around the corner – is your bike in tip-top condition for the longer nights and wetter weather?

Cycle maintenance on lambethcyclists.org.uk
Would you like to learn to do basic maintenance to avoid unnecessary costs and delays?

 Come on our cycle maintenance classes, a new set of which will start on Tuesday 11 September 2012.

The course runs over five two hour sessions on Tuesday evenings and covers all aspects of cycle maintenance – with a maximum of eight participants per course you will be working on your own bike.

The course costs £55 – excellent value and instruction is by a qualified Brixton Cycles mechanic.

Contact Chris James –chrisj52@hotmail.co.uk if you are interested in signing up for the course.

We run the course several times a year so we will put you on the list for next course if all the places have gone.

Feedback from earlier classes shows they have been very well received. As one participant put it:

"Simon is a fantastic, patient teacher who makes sure everyone "gets it". I found the course to be great value, having paid for itself several times over in savings on shop servicing. Couldn't recommend it enough."
