Join Lambeth Cyclists Architecture Ride, Sun 27th Oct, starts by Imperial War Museum

Join Lambeth Cyclists Architecture Ride, this Sunday,  27th Oct
Architecture, faith and community: Sunday 27th October 2013
This ride will explore the architecture of religious buildings as represented by some of the major faiths of London's diverse communities. We will explore how religious traditions and beliefs find expression in the architecture of church, synagogue,  mosque and temple. Some of the places of worship have been converted from their original use, reflecting successive waves of migration, carrying the religious symbols and customs of new ethnic groups which in contrasting styles bring together materiality with spirituality.
Meet in the Tibetan Peace Garden at the  Imperial War Museum, Lambeth Road, London SE1 6HZ at 10.45am for an 11am start (remember clocks go back an hour the night before). Lunch will be in Brick Lane and the ride will end at approximately 4pm.

Please note that we plan to visit Sandys Row Synagogue which asks for a £4 donation from visitors. Some of the buildings also request that visitors dress modestly, which means no shorts.
The ride will be led by John Heyderman and Tessa Wright (tel: 07949 785258). No need to book, just turn up on the day with a roadworthy bike.
