Public Art Cycle Ride - Kensington and Chelsea
Sat 9 July 2016, 10:30 – 13:30 BST
All are welcome to join this leisurely and entertaining ride on back streets and through parks. Over three hours we'll cover just eight flat miles, stopping along the way to see and find out a little about the art on public display in the borough, people commemorated in the work and the artists who created it.
Along the way, we'll find out about the artist who kept a menagerie of wild animals in his home, meet elegant ladies shopping, spot a boy and a girl who are three hundred years old, meet the Sun God, and see the tomb of the leading patron of the Pre-Raphaelite group of artists.
Starting and ending in Holland Park, this circular route also features cycling on the Thames Path (with fine river views), through Grade 1 listed Brompton Cemetery and across Kensington Gardens.
