Christmas in July Toy Run

Hello Riders:

We already have an overnight ride during this weekend supporting the Homes for Our Troops Charity, but I realize that not everyone can make overnights rides, so I place this event for you.

We usually support the Christmas in July Toy Run every year, but, obviously I cannot it this year, So I ask that those of you that find yourself with some free time and a few extra dollars please support this ride. The Clearwater Threshers Bikes and Baseball rained out (again), so this is an opportunity for you to place a toy that you picked out in the hands of a child, and at least make his/her day. Then you will be treated to a Tampa Yankees baseball game, along with an in- field stadium ride for the National Anthem.

Once again, please someone roll up any and all Patriotic Riders that decide to attend and please watch each other’s back. The last thing we want is for a Patriotic Rider to feel that they are there alone.  Enjoy and be safe.  Grumpy.

    Missed the group but I was there for the cause. Left half way through the game because it was so hot!

      Dc, this was a tough one to hang together on with well over 400 bikes. We shall catch up next time.

    Great cause, had a great time. Anything we can do to bring a little happiness on those little faces is wonderful. Hopefully the children that could not make it outside heard our roar and later with the toys knew we all were thinking of them.

    D.C. we were riding and hanging together but are not married.

    Checking in. Made it home safely. Stayed until the 5th inning. Really neat to be on the field. I met Adam, Abe and his wife. Looking forward to the next group ride!

    Ahem...! Since this starts at Tampa Harley and seeing as I own a modest Harley...I'm going to be there early to wander and drool, so if anyone feels like arriving early, you can call or text me at[masked]

    I can make this one. Hey everyone! This will be my first meet-up with the Patriot Riders group. How can I identify where you all will be?

      Just look for any riders wearing the Patrotic Rider rocker on the back of their vest/jacket and say hi!

    Looking forward to riding for a great cause!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
