Dont forget: Lambeth Cyclists Architecture Ride tomorrow

Join us for tomorrow's ride:

Join us for the next Lambeth Cyclists Architecture Ride on Saturday 22 September 2012. This ride is a revival of a ride we did six years ago looking at the work of the man who transformed London in the wake of the Great Fire.- Christopher Wren.

Already celebrated as a mathematician, astronomer and inventor, Wren seized his chance to make perhaps the greatest mark any one architect has made on a city, with fifty-one churches and their infinitely-varied steeples dancing around the great drum of St Paul’s and its dome.

Open House Weekend gives us the chance to go inside his City churches, many of which are rarely open, especially at weekends. We’ll visit as many of the churches as we can fit in, and finish with a look at one of his grandest “domestic” projects, the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

Meet 10:30am for 10:45 start at The Monument, Fish Street Hill, at the north end of London Bridge, EC3 (click on address for map). We’ll finish in Chelsea about 4.00.

Sign up now for Lambeth Cyclists maintenance classes: new set starts in October

Following on from the overwhelming demand for our maintenance classes due to start tomorrow Lambeth Cyclists will be running another set of cycle maintenance classes in October.


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 22 October 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."
