* What is a “cafe racer” and why is this the informal descriptor for the Team and Club members?

The term originated in the 1950s in the UK to describe a type or motorcycle and a style of riding.  The essence is informal street racing that starts and ends at a cafe.  Some types of cafe racing would travel from cafe to cafe; while other races would be out and back, to the same cafe.  This spirit—combining cafes and informal competition is a perfect analogy for the Ride Studio Cafe Club.
