THE MOTORCYCLE Action Group (MAG) has awarded one of its highest honours to Mark Wilsmore, owner of the iconic Ace Cafe in North London, for services to the biking community.
MAG’S vice-chairman Andy Carrott said: “The Simon Millward Lifetime Achievement Award goes to a person who, over their lifetime, has made a significant contribution to motorcycling. In 2017, that person is Mark Wilsmore.
Mr Carrot added:
The recognition of Mark’s contribution to biking in this country is richly deserved. His passion for bringing back the Ace Cafe has turned it into a British icon known all over the world. A visit to the Ace Cage has become a rite of passage for any motorcyclist and it is no wonder then that visitors from countless nations head for their counter to order a ‘fry up’ at this most famous of motorcycling venues.
“Without Mark, there would be no Ace Cafe and he justly deserves the award in recognition of the part he has played in the history of motorcycling.”
Mark collected the award at MAG’s recent annual conference where he thanked the movement for its recognition of the Ace.
