The annual Nelson Toy Run is on again, on the 28th of November.
For a motorcyclist, there’s a certain excitement about being part of a large group of riders, but for this ride there’s also the chance to ride for a Christmas cause.
Recipients of donations and gifts, the Salvation Army, will be onsite at both the start and finish of the ride to receive donations from the riders and any members of the public who wish to donate.
Any rider is invited to join this patchless ride and is encouraged to decorate their bikes for the fun of it and the chance to win a prize for the best-dresssed bike.
If riders are keen to give it a go but have never ridden in a large group before, organisers will team them up with a buddy to help make it easy and enjoyable.
Riders take off from Founders Park, Nelson, at 11 am, whatever the weather has in store.
The group will travel through Stoke and finish up at the Richmond Showgrounds about half an hour later.
The public is encouraged to welcome the riders in. There’ll be a sausage sizzle, coffee, and raffle tickets for awesome prizes, plus Toy Run badges.
It’s also a chance to check out a great collection of motorbikes, from scooters to vintage and all the horsepower between.
