This year Ace Cafe London's 16th annual Reunion weekend, Friday 11th to Sunday 13th September, celebrates some very special land marks, notably to include the 50th anniversary of the legendary and world famous 59 Club.

Starting on Friday 11th, with the cafe's regular 'Bike Night' and, from 6pm, the arrival of The Continental Run, there will be DJ Tracy Dick spinning the wax until late, with hard, fast rockers, The Twang Bangers, from Germany playing live.

Organised and arranged by the club's Chairman, Father Scott Anderson, together with the club's leaders and volunteer helpers, the service will commence at Noon.

The ride will return to the Ace for 2.30pm for the 2nd annual Cafe Racer Review, with awards and prizes for 'Best Bike' and runners-up, to be presented by special guests to include Mike Cook, Dave Degens, Norman White, Oliver Tobias, Derek Harris, Colin Campbell and members of the 59 Club management team.
