London Design Museum and Bicycles

by Adam on 11, January, 2016



A few of the Southern Chaps have had a Stirling idea (over a pint naturally) to have a little jaunt out to that London town and cast a critical eye over the Design Museum’s Cycle Revolution.

Obviously a chap cannot spend the whole day kicking tyres in a museum, a few of the better read fellows of the GA have suggested it can be very thirsty work this museum lark, always happy to take the advice of the Assembly’s intelligentsia a suggested meeting point is the Dean Swift before setting off to the Design Museum for the morning session.

If you are interested in popping along the planned date for this assignation is the 30th of January 2016 with a view to making our way to the museum not long after 10:00 ante-meridian. We shall no doubt return back to a public house to discus the merits of the exhibition and the evolution of bicycle design.

Tickets available just here.

Little update chaps, it would appear the Dean Swift is closed, our point of assignation has been relocated to The Shard, at the escalator near the tube station, we shall be recognisable by the pink carnation in our lapel.


Pashley Bikes Heritage

by Adam on 5, January, 2016



It appears over Christmas our friends at Pashley were at a bit of a loose end and have dug the old shoe boxes out from under the bed, rummaged through the photos contained within them, and after discarding the more embarrassing ones, in particular the one with Rath, a bucket of milk and a bike pump, assembled them together into some sort of order and made them public for our delectation.

The Pashley Heritage Photographs and a rather nice time line of the company.
