Bikers for Kids Toy Run 2011 Newcastle NSW Australia

Postby andrewaust » Sun Oct 16, 2011 12:15 pm

Anyone down in Australia or even travelling here in December, be sure to check out the Bikers for Kids Toyrun, 4th December 2011. There is a page on facebook dedicated to it, I'm always in attendance, so hopefully the old Enfield won't let me down this year.

Had a photo taken by someone on the road, I'm about the 7th bike back wearing the Santa hat .................. :D

Always a great day and ride, helping underprivileged kids, it's Australia wide, so if you are reading this and live in Australia and ride a bike, trike etc, please consider it.

All ready for the children's toy run tomorrow, the diesel dog is done, hoping for a good show of bikes to help the underprivileged children of the region. My wish is that everyone gets a toy this year.

Thanks Stuart



We had a show of over 6000 bikes, the run started at 10am and it took over an hour for them to all leave, at the foreshore they were still coming at 12.30pm, 25klm ride, took me 47 minutes to complete and for the first time able to get it on camera, although the sound was terrible due to the resonance coming through the handlebars where I had the camera mounted = live and learn hey ;)

I heard about a similar run in Florida and one here up country I think. Must be a growing trend. A good trend I think :D Glad it went ok.
