Back in 2014 Lambeth Cyclists had a dream to design an architecture ride looking at the best ‘Grand Designs’ in South London. But we faced two big challenges. First, would we be able to find the mysterious locations of the glorious houses featured in the Channel 4 series?
Second, and even more challenging, would we be able to persuade the owners of these dream homes to let a bunch of cyclists traipse round their houses on a Saturday in October?
With time running out, and no budget, ride organiser Tessa began to fear that the whole idea was built on shaky foundations, that the ride design was too ambitious and there would be no October Architecture ride for 2015.
Come and find out whether we managed to pull it off, and produce another ‘Grand Design’ for a bike ride.
Meet Saturday 31 October 2015 1.30pm at Queen’s Road Peckham Station for a gentle ride through Peckham, Brixton and Clapham, ending at Brockwell Park at around 4pm, in time for a cup of tea. Please bring locks and lights. All welcome, no need to book. If you have any queries contact ride organiser Tessa Wright on 07949 785258
