Tally Ho! The Guvnors Assembly are off to the Smoke (again)

tally ho london ride


It looks like the GA will have a decent showing on the Tweed Run, but as our warmth and hospitality knows virtually no bounds, we have organised a little jolly with Tally Ho! Cycles Tours on the Sunday.

We will be riding with another booking on the “Central London Tour” I have been informed this will involve at least one pub stop, possibly more. Jack has very kindly offered us a discount of £10 per head making the cost of the ride £10. The ride starts at 10:30 a.m. prompt from Tally Ho’s! Unofficial Head Quarters the Walrus Bar & Hostel

Tally Ho! have also been good enough to offer the use of their lock-up for bike storage over the weekend.

Finally he has also made a few suggestions regarding accommodation in the area, the Walrus, if four chaps or chapesses bunk up together it may be possible to get a room to share.

More conventional hotels are the Westminster Tune Hotel, a good old Premier Inn and finally the Park Plaza.

We have been asked if I could give an idea of numbers, so if you could please make some sort of comment below where we shall have a count up closer to the time.

Mrs Adam and I shall also be along for the day


Teresa Stokes March 26, 2013 at 8:29 pm

I should like to come, I wasn’t sure whether one had to book on the Tally Ho website, or is my name here enough?

Brethren of the mighty Assembly,

For those interested in the Sunday tour you need not book. Simply notify Frater Adam in this thread, or send me an electronic letter stating your intention. The offer mentioned above assumes you will be readied and mounted upon your own steed. For anyone seeking a thoroughbred or tandem from our own stables please notify me a once.

Expect a gentle amble on Sunday, full of historical tales, bizarre artefacts, and ale with pork scratchings.

Yours on 531,



Philip simons March 27, 2013 at 7:57 pm

Dodger (FKA EmGee CeCe) March 29, 2013 at 6:25 pm

Fantastic !… Dr John and McF … this Tally Ho ride is going to be more impressive than the Tweed Run itself by God !!!!!

Have managed to shorten my Easter holiday and am now delighted to add my name to the list. Look forward to seeing all the jolly GA members for a grand day out. Jack’s tours are priceless!



Sussex Bob April 2, 2013 at 6:46 pm

Jack, what time do you estimate that we will finish on the Sunday ride? (trying to book train tickets! )



TallyHoJack April 3, 2013 at 8:56 am

Morning all,

Knowing what a dastardly bunch of rebel riders you all are, I am looking to sneak in an additional stop at another fine tavern depending upon the agreement of the group. That said, I would recommend not arranging travel plans for anything earlier than 3:30pm (from Waterloo).



Matt McM April 4, 2013 at 9:06 pm

Dearest Chaps Across the Pond…can someone check the GA travel budget to see see if we have enough funds to buy my dirigible ticket? Would love to fly over for the big Tweed Run!!!


Adam April 5, 2013 at 1:23 pm

Afternoon Mr McM,

I have a good old rummage, once the moths had flown out we were left with two buttons, a bit of fluff and a Thr’penny bit the TCP wanted to keep because it was funny.
