 Introduction

The 59 Club, also known as The Fifty Nine Club and ‘the 9’, is a London, England, based motorcycle club with members all over the world. The 59 Club started as a church-based youth club founded in Hackney Wick on 2 April 1959, in the East End of London. In 1962, after a visit by Father Bill to the Ace Cafe, a motorcycle section was established in Hackney, the motorcycle section soon outgrew the youth club. Father Bill remained Chairman of the club until he passed away in 2009. The Club is staffed and managed by unpaid volunteers and helpers, many of whom have done so since the Sixties. The Club today follows its long-standing tradition of welcoming all riders on all types and styles of bikes.

We are honoured to gain permission to start 59 Club All Saints, for the good and benefit of local community scooter and motorcyclists with in the West London area.

Ethos

The Club follows the long-standing tradition of welcoming all riders on all types and styles of bikes. There is no probationary period to join that is the reason the club started, so everybody had somewhere to go. The under lying factor is that it is a social club for the many not the few, to come and enjoy an evening talking and socialising, no one will be turned away all are welcome.

Club Meet Nights

We are planning the first 59 Club All Saints meet on the evening of 28th June 2018 commencing at 630pm. The venue will be the front entrance to the Church with parking for your motorised two/ three wheeled vehicles to the front of the Church. Going forward we will, initially meet on the last Thursday of each month starting at 630pm, if people require further nights then the plan would be to meet on a fortnightly basis.

Events

Throughout the year we will be conducting ride outs and charity events to support the local community and charities. Dates of events will be provided well in advance for maximum attendance. It would be great to see as many people as possible at each event in support.

Membership

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in motorbikes. Annual subscriptions are renewable when your membership expires.  There is a nominal entry fee on Club nights and if you haven’t paid your subs for the current year you will be expected to pay the Visitor’s entrance fee instead. (Still a very reasonable fee). Current members receive a copy of the Club magazine ‘Link’, which is posted out once a year. Should you change your address it is essential that you inform the Club as soon as possible so that we can amend our records. We always need and welcome articles from members for the magazine. All contributions are gratefully received.

Subscription

Initially there will be no subscriptions, however if you wish to join and become a member then on the evening of the first meet, annual subscription costs will be available – you do not have to become a member to support the Club. To embrace the ethos of the Club membership is categorised by age in relation to the motorcycle licence acquisition as stipulated by the DVSA.

The 59 Club, because of its linked history, has now teamed up with the ACE CAFE LONDON, to enable the Club to protect its future. All memberships and regalia will need to be purchased through ACE CAFE LONDON. Effectively, this will make life easier for members to be able to pay, either by debit/credit cards directly with ACE CAFE LONDON or via the internet using the email address:
