On Sunday 3rd March 2019 we rode from Aldgate to Walthamstow and back to London. The route was primarily along cycle and canal paths to Walthamstow, where we visited the Vestry Museum (highlight being a set of Socialist Sunday School 10 Commandments), Assembly Halls (highlight being "Fellowship is Life and Lack of Fellowship is Death" carved in to its exterior) and we also visited the William Morris Gallery (highlight being the Walter Crane artwork). In Walthamstow we met a fellow London Clarion member for a quick drink before heading back to London.
Walter Crane designed the Angel logo for Clarion Cycling Clubs in 1912. The National Clarion Cycling Club 1895 (formed in 2006 after the National Clarion Cycling Club split) has now restored the logo in its original form.
On Sunday 10th February we rode from Surrey Quays to Chislehurst caves and back and stopped off for lunch after visiting the caves at a nearby pub. Chislehurst Caves are a series of intersecting man-made tunnels and caverns covering some 22 miles (35 km). The caves have appeared in several television programmes including episodes of Doctor Who from 1972 titled The Mutants. In an episode of Seven Natural Wonders presented by Bill Oddie, the caves were presented as one of the wonders of the London area.
On Sunday 3rd February we set off from Old Street for a 20 mile ride to Alexandra Palace & Highgate Cemetery where we stopped to take in particular at the grave Karl Marx). Matt's video tell's you more about the day.
