The Red, White & Blue Knights 35th Annual Toy Run

  • Sep 8, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • Tim Horton's

 

Well folks, nothing beats riding for a good cause and this year's Toy ride will be on Sunday September 8, 2013. The ride is now just called the Blue Knights Toy ride but it's the same wonderful police escorted ride starting at Nathan Phillips Square, up thru the city, the 401 and back via the DVP.

The price of admission..... absolutely free. Just bring a new unwrapped toy. Hopefully the TMSC again has a good turnout. Registration 9:00 am Ride Starts at Noon.

• 8:30am to 11:30am Registration for the Toyride
• 9:00am to 11:30am Pancake Breakfast

Those who wish to can meet for an informal ride (not an official TMSC club ride) at 10:00am at our normal Timmie's on the NW corner of Leslie & Lakeshore. Otherwise, be at Nathan Phillips Square (Toronto city hall) well before noon, to form up for the ride that leaves at noon.

 

Here's the link to this great ride.

    Incredible day! Never ever rode though downtown without hitting a light. It was surreal driving through a RED light!

    The slow riding is TIRING, but overall it's a super neat ride.

    That was a fun ride. Nice to see old and new friends get out and help those less fortunate. And wow.... right thru all the traffic lights was a real treat. Wish my daily commute was that easy.

    Beautiful weather, with riders who are willing to give of themselves. Great cause, fun ride. NOT ONE RED LIGHT, can you believe it!!!!

    I so want to do this but my scooter is in the garage still and won't be ready for tomorrow...augh.

    I'm happy to lead anyone from our Timmie's to Nathan Phillips Square - will as usual require signing a waiver for that part of the ride.

    September 7, 2013

    • Dan C.

      P.S. Will bring my Scala in case anyone wants to co-lead.

      September 7, 2013

    • Steve_YYZ

      Dan, the description above clearly states.... "Those who wish to can meet for an informal ride (not an official TMSC club ride)....." so there is absolutely no need for any waivers etc. It's NOT a TMSC event.

    I just checked, the dvp may be too fast for us 50cc riders

    August 14, 2013

    • Dan C.

      Kenny is right, there is usually a section on the 401 and/or the DVP, where we would probably be going at least 80.

      DVP will be closed for riders but ya you may want to skip that portion.

  • Corbee D.

    I'll meet you all there! Looks like it will be a great ride day with sun and perfect temps. Safe ride down guys and gals!

    Just so there's no confusion, I'll be attending this ride but will not be acting in any official Ride Leader's capacity. I've got a prior commitment on Sunday morning and will make it down to Nathan Phillips Square directly, likely by 10:45 am or so. See you all there..... if I can find you all.

    Riders with 50cc bikes, please come out the Nathan Phillip Square.
    The kids need your support. Enjoy the entertainment and breakfast at the Square. Wait for the group to return to the Square, as I will do instead of going on the ride.

    Here's the link to the ride website and route info.

    http://redwhiteandblueknights.com/rideday.htm

    I note that there appears to be a conflict between their posted map and the actual route description. I think the map is the old route, and the description (Up Bayview/York Mills/DVP) is the accurate route they'll take. Either way, it does include the DVP and that makes it NOT 50cc friendly or legal.

    August 15, 2013

  • Kenny M.

    I am confused the ride route does not mention going on the 401

    This is a great event with lots of things to see and eat.
    It usually includes a demonstration by the Toronto Police motorcycle team.

    As I can see from here, I will likely make it

    How does the 401 work for us 125 scooters (especially as new riders, who may or may not be scared of the highway)? As in, how fast does the ride go?

    June 17, 2013

  • jason

    I will be there. Maybe I will get to ride the parade this year.
    I am glad I am not in charge of the ride this year.

    June 12, 2013

  • Steve_YYZ

    Sure, I've still got the toy from last year when I ended up sick.
