Lambeth Cyclists Architecture Ride this Saturday: interwar South London churches

This Saturday, 31 March 2012, we have the first Lambeth Cyclists Architecture Ride of 2012.

Now spring is here, come for a leisurely cycle ride exploring little-visited parts of outer South London, mostly along quiet back roads.  On the way we will be looking mainly at inter-war churches.

These largely-ignored buildings are very varied.  Some try to keep to the late Victorian Gothic and Arts and Crafts traditions, but others are much more modern and adventurous in design and materials.

We will start the ride off by catching the 10:31 train from Tulse Hill to Merton South.

We will then cycle on a  route through Merton, Morden, St Helier, Hackbridge, Carshalton Beaches, Wallington, Waddon and Croydon where the ride will finish. Participants can then either take the train back from Croydon station, or after a refreshment stop cycle back to Lambeth taking in churches in Thornton Heath and Streatham.

This will be a leisurely all day ride around South London finishing at approximately 5pm. The total distance covered will be appoximately 12 miles, mostly flat but some hills. We will be stopping for lunch at the Robinhood pub in Sutton or bring sandwiches.

Meet 10:15 at Tulse Hill Station (front) to take the 10:31 train to Merton South. Alternatively meet us at Merton South station when the train gets in at 10:52 – if you will be meeting us here please contact ride leader Anthony Gilmour 0795 1572330

All welcome – no need to register – make sure your bike is roadworthy!
