'An Ace Day Out'
On Thursday 12th August Tower Hamlets Wheelers organised a successful easy-paced 'after work' ride to the Ace Cafe at Stonebridge Park along the Regents and Grand Union canals, with cyclists from several other LCC groups.
The Ace Cafe is one of London's original transport cafes situated on the old North Circular road and was frequented by truckers, motorcyclists, and a staging point for cycle rides out of north London.
Now it is a heritage cafe for bikers and cars. 'Petrolhead' events are now held there virtually every day and every weekend, but on 12th September the cafe held an event in Brighton so we had the cafe to ourselves!
This ride followed the success of the earlier one to the historical motorcycle haunt, re-tracing the route along the towpath of the Grand Union Canal. Cyclists from various LCC groups were invited along once more, and a great time was had by all!
Thanks to Keith Jones from Tower Hamlets Wheelers for organising this ride.
