The Guvnors’ Assembly Have Been Published

Those of you Ladies and Gentlemen with a good memory maybe able to cast your minds back to the “London Bike and Ale” ride last July where aside from the torrential rain that unsuccessfully tried to dampen our spirits we met up with the author and cyclist Mr. Chris Haddon along with the photographer for the project Mr. Lyndon McNeil, these gentlemen were at the time, gathering material for a new book entitled “My Cool Bike” with an aim to provide an “inspirational guide to bikes and bike culture”

Now, obviously any tome that features the illustrious Guvnors’ Assembly can not be all bad, but after the initial flick through to page 50 and admiring the sartorial elegance and the boyish good looks of the GA, a fellow makes himself comfortable, pours a glass of good Port and leafs through the remaining 156 pages quickly realising  that the book is actually rather an interesting read and well worth the pouring of a few more drinks.

The subjects are split naturally by the fall of the page and illustrated with a plethora of well photographed images and accompanied by a narrative provided by Mr Haddon. It should also be mentioned at this juncture the good author has excelled himself in his subject matter. Usually with graphical cycle style books authors have problems traveling beyond of the M25, on this occasion not only has the author travelled around the UK gathering material but the fellow has actually got on his virtual cycle and travelled the world in search of interesting subjects.

As this is a proper book if your interest has been piqued you may purchase the book from a physical book shop or, if one is suitably connected from an “on-line” shop such as these purveyors of literature or other companies such like companies who are not so keen on paying tax.
