Date: Bank Holiday Monday 26th May
Depart Ace Cafe: 10.30am
Route: A406 – A13 – M25 – A2 – M2 – A299 to Margate seafront
The 7th annual Margate Meltdown is the most recently established of Ace Cafe London’s free to
attend major ride outs.
The ride out from the cafe to this popular seaside resort in Kent has been held each year on occasion of the annual Spring Bank Holiday. Margate seafront and harbour is given over to motorcycles and scooters, diverse club and trade stands, a stage with live entertainment from Noon,
featuring on the Ace stage the semi-acoustic sounds of The Elbeats, together with rockin’ DJ’s Bill & George Guntrip.
Working closely with the cafe’s chosen charity for this event, The Royal British Legion Riders Branch (RBLRB), the town and Thanet District Council, Margate not only has everything that a great ride out requires, but also a great beach and plenty of heritage to include a legacy from the 1960s that
is of world renown relating to motorbikes, scooters and the Mods & Rockers that rode them!
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the infamous Mods & Rockers clashes of 1964!

Since setting up this blog I have not had the time to return until now. I am only able to do this now because it is a bank holiday known as Whitson which also ushers in half term for the kids meaning they get a week off. This used to mean that the drive into work was easer and the traffic much lighter. but now it almost makes no difference.
For a down turn year we have seen our work load go up. Why? People are hanging on to their money? Yes! That’s not always the case, the way they are spending it is a bit more considered, checking out there options before committing to a course of action.
We are getting more enquiries and from that more work, repair is making more sense over new and now in many cases second hand. It is strange that people do not think that when they opt for a repair that it is good for the environment. Lets be honest when you have smashed up your pride and joy all you want to do is get it back on the road as quickly and cost affectively as possible, This is where in an increasing number of cases we are coming to the fore.
