In addition to Ace Cafe London celebrating its annual Ace Cafe Reunion at the legendary cafe on London’s North Circular Road on the 6th & 7th September and with the ride-out to Madeira Drive in Brighton on 8th September, this year the cafe is privileged to also be a part of the 59 Club’s 60th Anniversary!
Having been founded in 1959, to celebrate the 59 Club’s 60th Anniversary the annual “Cafe Racer Ride Out” departs the Ace at 10.30am on Saturday 7th September as a “Bypass Burn-Up” to attend a special one hour Celebratory Service and Blessing of the Bikes that, starting at noon , is led by 59 Club Chairman and motorcyclist Father Sergiy’s Diduk, at his Church, All Saints, Hanworth.
All Saints Church Hanworth was originally built and consecrated by the late Reverend William Shergold in 1957, prior to his then moving on to the Church of St Mary, Eton Mission at Hackney Wick, London and the 59 Club.
As a keen motorcyclist Father Bill, or Farv, as he was affectionately known, visited the Ace Cafe in 1962 to invite motorcyclists to attend a service and blessing of bikes at The Eton Mission, Hackney Wick This was a great success and was widely reported on at the time. From this the 59 Motorcycle Club, a registered church charity and motorcycle club was born, and its now revered reputation established.
All are invited to attend this very special service and blessing of bikes, which will be held at 12noon on Saturday 7th September.
