Cyclists from Lambeth to join 50,000 others at Ride London Freecycle – feeder rides from Streatham and Clapham leave on Saturday for main central London event 

This Saturday, 3 August 2013, thousands of cyclists from across London will take in sights such as the Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and St Paul’s Cathedral cycling around a traffic free route stretching from Westminster to the Tower of London.

More than 50,000 cyclists are expected in central London for the Ride London Freecycle celebration of cycling. Lambeth Cyclists, the local borough group of the London Cycling Campaign, will be leading a feeder ride from the borough up to central London to join the main event.

 Everyone is welcome to join the free ride departing from Streatham Hill Station at 10am and calling at Clapham Common at 10:30 before heading up to central London via Cedars Road and Chelsea Bridge. The ride will be led by experienced cyclists together with a full team of marshalls and fully insured to ensure everyone reaches Ride London safely. A return ride will also be organised in the afternoon for those heading back to Lambeth.
