Next Ride Out. The Ace Cafe Reunion.

Our Next Ride Out DSC_00032will be Sunday the 13th of September to The Ace Cafe, Londons’ North Circular Road.

This Iconic Venue has been feeding and entertaining over the years, truckers, trippers, drivers and mostly Bikers.

Meeting at MacDonalds (The Ace Cafe it aint!!) at junction 32 of the M4, Coryton Interchange for a 9.30am departure.  Last time we visited we took the old A4 rather than track up the Motorway all the way. Joining the Motorway around Reading for the last run in.

There are many events taking place over this re-union weekend, but The Ace is worth visiting at any time (Well, when they are open is better..).

So, as they say, “See you at the Ace”.

Come on you know you want to..

A Big Thank You.

Also I want to say a big Thank you to all of you who joined us on the Ride Out to Rhayader.  I collected a total of £120 from the sale of the NSPCC badges and I have sent a cheque for this amount to the NSPCC.  I know that they put our donations to good use.  £1 from your £10 fee was collected for the charity by Kevin at Riders, I haven’t received this money and he is dealing with that money separately.

  1. Damnit, I’ve been waiting for this trip! If only I can convince the missus that it’s a good idea the day after our marriage?!?!?!

  2. You need to check the biking calendar before you go arranging things like…. marriages, births etc.

    See you at The ACE for a nice wedding breakfast!

  4. Hi Andy,
    Enjoyed the ride to the Ace yesterday. Glad I went but I don’t think I would rush back.
    Simon and I had a great run back via the M40/A40/M5/M4.
    Got some fuel in the services at the end of the M40 at Oxford, 112.9/litre, is this a record? These were services run by Waitrose, I got fuel at Waitrose Barry before leaving 103.9, talk about getting ripped off.
    See you on the next ride.
