Make concrete plans to join our next architecture ride

The next Lambeth Cyclists Architecture ride will be on Saturday 27 August.

Concrete One

Trellick Tower 02
Trellick Tower
Concrete is one of the most widely-used building materials, but it is often associated with the architecture of the 1960s, and in particular the style known as brutalism, from the French b├ęton brut, raw concrete. Come and join us for a tour of concrete buildings – from the 1960s and before and since - of West and North London, to decide whether you think these concrete icons deserve the term ‘monstrosity’ or ‘marvel’.

The ride will start at Hyde Park Barracks at 10.30am. 

We will stop for lunch somewhere around Camden and aim to finish in central London at around 4pm.

Meet at South Carriage Drive opposite the tower of Hyde Park Barracks. As South Carriage Drive is closed westbound at the moment, it will be easier to approach from Exhibition Road and turn right.

All welcome, no need to book. 

The ride will be led by Geraldine, Mark and Tessa. If you have any queries contact Tessa on 07949 785258.
