Margate Meltdown Ride Out 11/05/2011


Date:   Monday 30th May 2011

Depart Cafe: 10.30am

Route:  A406 - A13 - M25 - A2 - M2 - A299 to Margate Seafront
The 4th 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 is held each year on occasion of the annual Spring Bank Holiday. Margate's seafront and harbour is given over to motorcycles, diverse club and trade stands, a stage and live entertainment from Noon with rockin' band "The Sunsetters" and DJ Bill Guntrip.
Margate's famous amusement park, Dreamland will be open and back by popular demand, is the return of Carter's Steam Fair with their paramount Chair-O-Planes having received a complete restoration in recent months.  These are the second large ride the Carter family took on the road back in the early days of being showmen and believed to have originated from Europe during the early 1920's!
Dreamland is open from 11am and is free to enter.
Working closely with our 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, it has a great beach and plenty of heritage to include a legacy from the 1960's that is of world renown relating to motorbikes, scooters and the Mods & Rockers that rode them!
