Think 2017

Well it’s new year so we had better get the Mountblanc out and ink a few dates into the old Collins, we’ve pulled together a few of the dates we are aware of so far this year, but of course if you would like a date adding or even think so little of your reputation you would care to host a ride in your local neck of the woods then please feel free to get in touch either on the bottom of the page or drop a quick missive to Admin@TheGuvnorsAssembly .com

Happy Christmas One and All!

by Adam on 21, December, 2016

Well Gentlemen, it is that time of year once again, Christmas is drawing in and not far on it’s heels will be the New Year, and what a year!

We’ve been taken in hand and led on jollies from what is to all intents and purposes France to the traditional Holly Run in the civilised North.

In between GA organised rides we’ve turned up en masse at Eroica Britannia, won every sportive we entered (Path Racer class), impressed many fellow riders and still found time for the occasional pint sometimes during, but always after a ride.

Then, as if this was not enough, the chaps have been busy creating a Facebook Group to create a virtual pub so you can recount tales of daring do in the company of other like minded fellows.

Until next year Gentlemen, may the Guvnors’ Assembly wish you a happy New Year and all the best to you and your loved ones?

Jack Wills, The Guvnors’ Assembly and a Few Hangers On

February 8, 2016 Musings

  It would appear that the venerable Guvnor has yet again been picked upon by the  youthful, stylish and good looking, this time in the Jack Wills catalogue. Now, we at the GA are not the type of fellows that go banding praise and complements around willy nilly, but when the article has the good […]

Pashley Bikes Heritage

January 5, 2016 Musings

  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 […]

Yo! Ho! Ho!

December 23, 2015 Musings

  Well ladies and Gentlemen, we’ve got through another one with style, panache and humour we’ve even ridden our bikes on occasion. Wishing one and all a very Happy Christmas and New Year, and here’s to riding with you all in 2016, and of course if Santa leaves a little biked shaped parcel under the […]
