Win a Guv’nor And Pick It Up In France

by Adam on 19, April, 2014

Anjou Vintage

We at The Assembly will be the first to admit that this little competition is a little like taking coals to Newcastle but let us not forget some fellows and indeed ladies are not so fortunate as we the majority, and feel the not owning of a Guvnor is a bar from membership to the GA (For the record the correct frame of mind and broad shoulders are of much greater value than the actual bike).

So if you fancy your chances and

  • A Pashley Guv’nor (3 speed, 22″ frame)
  • 2 x entries to the Sunday ride on 29th June (choosing from 30, 55 or 90km)
  • 1 nights hotel accommodation on Saturday 28th June for 2 people (twin or double)
  • A days vintage bicycle rental for the winner’s companion
  • … and £250 towards your transport to France!

Then this unusually generous competition could be just the door you are looking for.

I really would care for a spangly new Pashley Guvnor don’t forget to tell them that ‘I would like to pedal a Pashley along the lovely Loire’ in the subject.

The Guvnors’ Assembly Needs You!

by Adam on 18, March, 2014


Gentlemen and indeed Ladies of the Guvnors’ Assembly, as many of you know we do like to get out and about during the course of a year but to be honest this can not really happen without a bit of local knowledge from your good selves.

So with no no further adieu, the floor is open to suggestions.


Traditionally the Tweed Run has been the season opener in the first week or so in April, as we now know this years’ ride has now been moved to May so this year it would appear we now have a space on our dance card.


Well the cat is out of the bag and we have the Tweed Run on the 17th of May and to put icing on the London cake Tally Ho! Cycle Tours have offered to keep us entertained on the Sunday


Another busy month with the Pashley Picnic on the 1st of June (Incidentally we have been asked to help marshal the event again for free entry into the event), then a few weeks later on the 15th of June the VeloVintage soirée hosted by the Assembly’s good friends the Cope’s.

It is also probably worth mentioning the L’Eroica Britannia at this juncture, strictly speaking this comes under one of the “Should Know Better” arm of the GA but with an associated three day bike, food and drink festival several people are coming along for the adventure.


We are sure if you have popped your head over to the forum you will have seen the Chiltern Cycling Festival promoting their wears with a Vintage Club Run over the course of the weekend. What say you chaps?


Nothing to see here at the moment, any suggestions?


Historically the driest month of the year, would anyone care to take advantage of it?


Again the diary is looking a little sparse at the moment.


If it is November then it must be the Holly Run, the only question to be asked is “Town or Country?”


The 2014 Tweed Run

March 15, 2014 Jollies

With a very familiar style of artwork the 2014 London Tweed Run has been announced on the unusually late date of 17th May. As ever it is safe to say the event will be a sell out, but the GA have always done well in the past and managed a decent showing pre, during and […]

The 2014 Wiggle No Excuses

March 6, 2014 Jollies

  It’s been a long cold winter since last years’ jolly down in Devon last year, but like the Spring flowers slowly popping their heads up through the once frozen earth the Guvnors Assembly (Should Know Better Branch) have been downing the cod liver oil to lubricate their joints and popping a bit of oil […]

Guvnor’s Assembly Jersey for the Chilly Weather

February 1, 2014 Attire

Never the quickest to rush Assembly products out, research, quality assurance actually leaving the Public House to sort matters all take their time. Fortunately the Design Department is not so slothful as the Press Office and this little number dropped onto the desk from the blue. The Winter Jersey is again produced by those marvellous chaps […]
