Feeder ride to the Ace Cafe

'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.

Dulwich Dynamo

As a humorous antidote to the Dunwich Dynamo ride, Lambeth Cyclists held the 'Dulwich Dynamo'; a chance to catch up with cycling friends and make new ones without having to sit on a saddle for 12 hours in the dark.

We met at Olley's for probably the best fish and chips in London at 7pm (67-69 Norwood Road SE24) and ate them in Brockwell Park. Then we sampled the local taverns: the Prince Regent, the Rosendale, and the Dulwich Wood House pubs. A couple of guests from Greenwich Cyclists came along for the ride. A quiet evening pleasantly spent!
Thanks to Janet Paske for the idea and leading the ride!
