from Brighton to London using the least energy possible
within the 2hrs 45min minimum and 3hrs 30min maximum time

 Repair Cafe is a community project first developed in
Holland, which encourages people to repair, reuse and
recycle their possessions to reduce waste and reverse the
rise of a disposable culture. Londoners are encouraged to
bring-in transportable broken household items to Repair Café
for assessment, and if deemed repairable by the organisers,
can start making their repairs in the Repair Café. DIY,
carpentry and electrical experts from The Goodlife Centre
are on stand-by to advise and a selection of tools and
materials are made available for use.

Sunday 4 November
Cars leave Hyde Park between 7am and 8.30am and cross
Westminster Bridge soon afterwards 
See 500+ veteran cars - up to 116 years old - pass through
the streets of North Lambeth. A celebration of the
Emancipation Run held in 1896. Thirty vehicles travelled the
60-miles from London to Brighton to mark the passing into
law of the Light Locomotives Act which raised the speed
limit from 4mph to 14mph and did away with the requirement
for a person to walk in front of a vehicle waving a red flag
to warn other road users. The first reenactment was in 1927
and the LBVCR has been held every year except during World
War II and in 1947 due to fuel rationing. Route crosses
Westminster Bridge then via Lambeth Palace Road and Lambeth
