VMCC Day at Ace - Sunday 14th August

 
The cafe's annual Vintage Motorcycle meet with the VMCC (Vintage Motor Cycle Club) will also be hosting rider and author Stephen Holmes, signing copies of his book "To Infinity And Beyond".
 
His journey on a sixty year old Norton 500 is arguably the least known motorcycle journey of all time, but it took the same route as Che Guevara's 1952 road trip on the back roads of South America ....well someone had to finish!  
 
Steve, from Blackburn in Lancashire is an ex-punk whose band once supported the Boomtown Rats. The anarchy may have died but his adventurous spirit remains.  He got into two wheels via a Lambretta SX200 but nowadays rides a Ducati 749S, so his experience of bikes is diverse.  Even so, the 1940's Norton took some getting used to.
