The Riders branch of the Royal British Legion held their annual meet at the Ace Cafe on May 27th 2012. The meet was blessed with glorious weather and the turnout of bikes was impressive. Members had travelled far and wide on a great variety of bikes. It was my first time at the Ace and I was not disappointed. The food was excellent and the prices reasonable, especially by London standards. I was pleased that the Ace wasn’t an American pastiche but a no-nonsense cafe. The RBLR put on a great day and it was nice to meet and chat to like-minded individuals all united by the bond of motorcycling and to support the aims of the Royal British Legion.
Live music was provided by Hells Gazelles and they went down a storm with the crowd and kindly donated a percentage of sales of their EP to the cause. The raffle was also very popular, the draw nearly eclipsed the Eurovision Song Contest voting process for longevity so plentiful were the prizes, and the net result was also much better.
All in all from my point of view it seemed an excellent day and I hope for the RBLR when it is all totted up it was for them as well.
