16th Annual Teddy Bear Run - the Last Run!

  • Feb 9, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This will be about the 8th year I've done this run and (knock on wood) they've always had fairly decent riding weather. 

It's 8 mile parade ride around Green River. It leaves from the South King Alano Club, 1317 Harvey Rd., Auburn (behind Gold's Gym) at 12:30pm. Bring a small to medium size NEW stuffed animal to donate to the children going through the Auburn Medical Center Emergency Room or having surgery. The hospital will provide a luncheon buffet in appreciation.

Let's meet at the Starbuck's in Kennydale (exit 7 off 405) ready to leave at 11am. Arrive gassed up and ready to go (there are gas stations at exit 6, just south of Denny's). Feel free to arrive earlier for breakfast. We'll get to the run about an hour before it starts so we can socialize with other riders.

We'll make one quick stop before just before we get to the staging area to pick up any south end riders at the Arby's on 15th.  Let me know if you want to meet us there.  If no one posts they will, we'll ride on by.

This will be a co-ed ride in to the Teddy Bear Run.  Please feel free to cross-post and invite other riders and groups. The more riders, and teddy bears, the better!

    Okay, I'm posting another ride for those who couldn't make it out Sunday. (Good for you Tammy for being able to go!!). It'll be for Sunday Mar 2 and so far the extended forecast is looking good *fingers crossed*. This will be an all levels ride - look out for the invite.

    Well I feel sad that the last Teddy Bear Run ends like this. If you're able to drive there safely to drop off your bears, please do. (I wish I could join you but don't want to press my luck.) Either way, we'll do a special Teddy Bear Run for Meetup Riders - March 2nd is looking real good. Going to go work on the route today! :D

      What if next year the Lady Riders put on the event? But have it in March :D

      We could, but prob not on this scale. But doesn't have to be to get the bears to the kids. And it'll still be co-ed. :)

    So drove down to Kennydale, @Denny's now. Roads were bare & wet all the way here from North Bend (I90&405) but still snow flurries in places & I'm sure ice patches out there. I don't have heated gear so we drove the car so we can still participate & delivery the bears for the kids.

    It snowed pretty good here in Everett so I'm out, why is this the last one ever?

      Seems like logistics and the economy changes are the factor, and now it ends with cars, trucks and snowmobiles. :)

    Sorry to share that tomorrow will be the last Teddy Bear Run, but Teddy Bear Run 16 is still on, snow, sleet or rain. Btw, the Run has had decent riding weather the last 15 years -what a streak! If you can't ride due to cold or snow, but can drive safely - you are still welcome (safety 1st). We can still meet at the Starbucks and carpool down. It's all about getting the bears to the kids. If the snow or ice is bad in the morning, we'll head over another time or see about stopping by on your own to drop off the bears. Stay tuned!

    I have no heated gear, so I think I'm out :-(

    Cross your fingers that the weather holds, or better yet, improves. Let's get those teddy bears to the kids! Check in the morning for updates. I plan to arrive by 10:45 and kickstands up at 11am. Going to bag the meeting in Arby's (unless wanted) and just head to the staging area. Chances to meet there and/or at lunch.

    Mark & I may hit that Denny's near the starbucks for breakfast about 9:30.
