Werner has planned a Bazalgette-themed ride. It was 200 years from Joseph Bazalgette’s birth on March 28th. A little late, we plan to celebrate with a ride around sights associated with the great engineer.  Bound to include the memorial on Victoria Embankment and the blue plaque in St Johns Wood. Also a ride past the Institute of Civil Engineers, whose president he was.  

More notes on route: out over Waterloo Bridge; CS3 on top of Victoria Embankment and Bazalgette Memorial, St Margaret’s Westminster where he got married; Institute of Civil Engineers in Gt George St, where he was president (report at time:  “appropriately his presidential address discussed ‘those engineering works which promote the health and comfort of the inhabitants of large cities, and by which human life may be preserved and prolonged'” – sounds like he was a supporter of bike lanes; Hyde Park; A bit of Q12; Pushing the boundary into St John’s Wood and a look at his blue plaque; Stop in Regent’s Park; Dysfunctional pump in Broad(wick) St and Golden Square; Probably back over London Bridge.

Will be the usual easy-paced ride.  Everyone welcome, just turn up with your bike, and note that all our rides are free.

NB we are also doing a longer Bazalgette 2 ride on April 22nd, Easter Monday.  Check the Events listing for details.
