Blaze Wear attend Ace Café 80th Reunion Weekend

Last month we announced our exciting new partnership with the iconic Ace Café London, in conjunction with the launch of our new collection of heated clothing designed specifically for bikers, the Moto Range.

 

Blaze Wear joined forces with the roadside café on London’s North Circular Road to celebrate its 80th anniversary, since opening its doors in 1938. The weekend also marked the 25th annual Ace Café Reunion, originally organised by Mark Wilsmore in 1994. The highly anticipated event is enjoyed by motorcycle enthusiasts around the world.

 

For 2018, Ace Café announced the biggest reunion weekend yet, with a weekend of live music, awards, motorcycles and dancing.

 

Continental Run

 

The Friday was kicked off by the arrival of riders from the Continental Run 2018 Powered by Blaze Wear, which saw participants embarking on a 5 day journey from Glemseck 101 through Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium and England to arrive at Ace Café in time for the reunion.

 

Mark Wilsmore, founder and owner of Ace Café, debuted Blaze Wear’s new Moto Range when riding out during the Continental Run. He described how his Blaze Wear gear ensures ‘the cold weather is kept at bay’, which is so important as we all know how bitterly cold it can be when riding out:

Ace Café Reunion

 

Continental Run riders and friends of Ace Café enjoyed a party on the Friday night which lasted long into the night, with some attendees even pitching up tents to enjoy the festivities.

 

Saturday started with the annual Café Racer and Rockers Ride-Out to Battersea Park, and in the afternoon winners were announced from the competition, with Blaze Wear presenting the ‘Best Ridden’ winner the prize of a Heated Motorcycle Vest.

 

The finale of the weekend saw the hugely popular Brighton Burn Up take place, in which motorcyclists rode from Ace Café to Brighton to close the weekend. Thousands of visitors headed to Brighton’s seafront to shop, eat, take in the Two Bros stunt shows and enjoy live music from acts including Slim Jim Phantom.

 

The Moto Range

 

All products in the Moto Range are powered through a single wire from your bike, so there is no need to worry about batteries. Everything in the collection can be connected together, or individual garments can be worn if preferred.

 

Our Heated Motorcycle Jacket Liner, with a wind and water resistant outer-shell is essential if you wish to stay warm at all times when riding out. The full Moto Range is available to purchase online now.

 

Never worry about the cold again when riding out.
