Come join Wandsworth Cyclists for this quirky culture show ride. The ride starts at the Battersea Pagoda then along the riverside to the Wandsworth Museum to see the HMP Wandsworth exhibit: Seperation & Silence.

"The exhibition explores the history of the UK’s largest prison, society’s changing views on crime and punishment and the experiences of prisoners both past and present.

... through different artistic works we take a look into the prisoners’ lives behind the walls. An original quilt created specifically for this exhibition by the prisoner’s and rehabilitation charity Fine Cell Work will be on display for the first time. Inside Eye, a photography project that took place in the prison years ago gives a rare glimpse into the life of a prisoner and their perspective of being on the inside."

After viewing the exhibit we will then head to the Wandle trail (off-road) to this years Wimbledon Art Studios Winter Show.

"At the show the public are invited to come and buy directly from the artists. It’s an ideal opportunity to view their latest work and to buy the work commission-free.

A wide variety of work is available across many disciplines including: painting, ceramics, sculpture, textiles, photography, printmaking and furniture design - there is something of interest for everyone."

After viewing and possibly purchasing local artists work we will head back to Battersea. You will have the choice to return by train or join us on the return ride.

DO REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR LIGHTS!!
