Toy Runs

Approx 70 bikes took part in the 2010 Tenterfield Toy Run. Gifts of toys and non-perishable items were donated by the generous residents of Tenterfield, Wallangarra, Jennings, Ballendean, Stanthorpe and all the little communities in between.
A Sausage Sizzle, run by the Tenterfield Lions was enthusiastically devoured on our return to base.

The weekend before Christmas we got back on the bikes and joined our fellow riders in Toowoomba for their annual Toy Run. From the moment we arrived at the motel it rained! Not hard, not cold - just annoying. As is the norm, groups take off for trips to Crows Nest, Oakey, Gatton and Nobby. This year we decided to go west to Crows Nest. A VERY WET CROWS NEST as it turned out. We usually manager to pick up other riders on the way - not this time ... not a soul.
In previous years Toowoomba can see gatherings of 200 to 300 bikes - we got 32! I can't say I blame them. Very wet and very miserable. I wore bin liners under the riding gear and still came home soggy.
