Todays (Mini) North Wales meet :)

7 years 5 months ago #74780 by sniperpenguin
Well, back home and I personally think we've found a new North Wales base :D

The owner of Petrolheads cafe is called Kevin, and is a genuinely nice bloke. He was eager to meet us, and despite his parents visiting he came to sit with us on three seperate occasions to see how we were. Staff were also unbelievably friendly, and despite the place being full of various bikers (both engine and human powered lol) it had a good vibe.



In short, he makes no apologies to the fact that he is basing Petrolheads on the legendary ACE cafe in London ;) The same scale isnt quite there, but its raved about on biker forums and the first suggestion he make to us next time we came was "park the cars on the concrete out front so we could have them on display" :D

Andy and I liked the look of the place, and importantly Kevin wants stuff like this to WORK, and I get the impression he would bend over backwards to make stuff happen. With the winter months closing in, the goal is to get this place established as a regular meet place for the North, before cranking up some events etc as the light comes back to us :)

The North-West fix-it day happened to to have been organised on the same date, so that plus a few cancellations dwindled the numbers somewhat :rotflmao:



And I got to see what a green hood would look like - SOLD :D



All in all an enjoyable (if rain-covered!) trip, and a drink in the Cottage Loaf made it all the more worth it ;)
