Tally Ho! – We’re Off to London

tally ho london ride. 2015


We are sure a few of you maybe aware that a Tweed themed cycle ride is taking place in that London this weekend, rumours of “too big”, “lost their” can occasionally be heard. Fear not, those with their ear to the urban beat will know that the Tally Ho! cycle ride on the Sunday is really where the action is.

Mr Harris has been good enough to host the GA and take them around the metropolis practically every year since the start of the Tweed Run and this year I am pleased to say the fellow has yet again stepped up to the mark and has planned an adventure a little different to previous rides, but fear not we have been assured it will “still” hit the mark and if “proof” is needed Mr Harris has assured us we will not be left high and “dry”. We have been asked not to spoil the ride by giving anything away regarding the day.

As usual we will be meeting at The Walrus Pub and Hostel just over Westminster Bridge at about 10.00 ante meridiem and finishing when we are ready to go home, Mr Harris does a wonderful job of tailoring the day to coincide with trains and connections to more civilised parts of the country.

Expect a few expenses but nothing that will burn fingers, if you have missed the Tweed Run or just fancy an easy going day out Tally Ho! really are the chaps to be riding with, of course, as ever we are more than happy to welcome one and all.

Looking forward to meeting one and all “distil” then take care.

A quick update: We are now looking to set of at 11:00 am, entry into the entertainment is £15:00 a reasonable amount I’m sure you will agree and should “mother’s” ruin anyone


31st of May the Pashley Picnic

by Adam on 8, April, 2015

Pashley Picnic

The Pashley Picnic has gained a reputation of a “rather smashing” weekend away, and with the exception of the maiden event the weather has been spot on.

The picnic is a little bit special for a variety of reasons, the Guvnors’ home turf, a rather relaxed feel to the day, pass the parcel, it is the day that keeps giving.

Riding around Stratford Upon Avon is a rather nice experience, setting off from the town centre within a few hundred yards you are in quiet roads, that incidentally are devoid of pot holes and littered with pubs. To avail ourselves of these facilities we plan to meet up on the Saturday about twelve(ish) and take a spin out for a later lunch.

The invitation is of course open to all and we are always open to suggestions as to where to ride.

If you would care to join us on either day or evening please feel free to pop along (although Pashley are charging a very reasonable £15:00) the GA’s only stipulation is you stand your round.

A few snaps from past events;

The rather moist Picnic from 2012 and the rather drier ride in 2013, and finally last year.


30 Days of Biking

30 Days


Last year a few of the GA and Basket Brigade took part in the “30 Days of Cycling” challenge, Mr Foss appeared to miss-understand the challenge and appeared to be attempting to the moon and back in the month of April, others *cough* covered considerably less.

For an adventure that started off in the colonies it is remarkably GA, quite simply a fellow pledges to ride their bike everyday in the month of April, the trip can be to the bottom of the drive and back or, as in the case of Mr Foss to our nearest planetary body. If a fellow misses a day, no harm done, just pick ones self up by the boot straps and try not to do it again old boy.

We will pop this up on the forum for a touch of mutual support and motivation.

Well, that sounds interesting I’ll give it a go.
