Women’s Festival of Cycling ride

From Ama Asante via Olive Morris and Angela Carter, to Lillian Baylis remarkable, brilliant women have always lived and worked in Lambeth.

Women from the Lambeth Cyclists will lead a ride for men and women around Lambeth on Saturday 8 July as part of the national Women’s Festival of Cycling.

We will visit a number of places associated with famous Lambeth women, the Streatham school where supermodel Naomi Campbell studied and the Brixton school designed by world famous architect Zaha Hadid, the site of the South London Women’s hospital founded by two of the first women surgeons, and Vauxhall Park which owes its existence to suffragette Millicent Fawcett and campaigner for social housing and open spaces Octavia Hill.
