Easter bank holiday Monday is looming, and in the Carole Nash offices, that means only one thing: the annual Ace Cafe Southend Shakedown.

Now in its 17th glorious year, the Southend Shakedown is the perfect opportunity to blow off those winter (and spring!) blues, pack a few Easter eggs into your bag, and join Ace Cafe London on its first major ride-out of the year.

The pack will leave the legendary North London petrol-head hotspot at 10.30am on bank holiday Monday, 6th April, for the 55-mile trip to Southend-on-Sea, on the Essex coast. The route will follow the A406 to A12, to A127 and on to Southend seafront.

And once you’re there, the fun really starts! There’s plenty of grub on offer, and the seafront is guaranteed to be chock-a-block with family-friendly activities, rides for the kids, stands and displays showcasing all sorts of biker gear. Not to mention thousands of motorbikes to check out!

We’ll be there, too, of course! We never miss a chance to catch up with fellow bike fans and pose for a few selfies (never mind a trip to the seaside!) Visit the Carole Nash Crew on our stand and you could walk away with £250 off your insurance in our free prize draw. †

We’ll be on hand all day providing great value quotes and spreading the word about two of our hottest new offers for 2015 – Rider Cover*, which insures you even if you’re riding someone else’s bike (with their permission, of course!), and Biker Only car cover**, which rewards bikers for their superior driving skills by giving them a better deal on their car insurance. Plus if you get a quote with us this weekend, you will be the proud owner of a V2 Visor sponge cleaning kit.^

As every year, a percentage of money raised during this free-to-attend event will go towards children’s charities. Yet another reason to dust off your leathers (and sun hat hopefully!) and join the Carole Nash Crew at the Ace Cafe Southend Shakedown this bank holiday Monday. And remember, you could get your motorcycle insurance paid for a year, courtesy of Carole Nash!

See you on the beach!
