Let's make plans to go this year to the Olympia Toy Run 2013 (http://www.olytoyrun.com/)! Departure time will be weather dependent, but be sure to bundle up and break out that heated gear. If you haven't done this ride yet, it's quite an experience. Riders show up even in the snow, like for the 31st Olympia Toy Run which was the most successful Toy Run ever! We counted over 10,000 bikes in the parade (didn't it snow?). Use comments to coordinate meeting points. See site (http://www.olytoyrun.com/) for complete details. ~Claudette

All motorcycle riders are welcome. This ride benefits needy children and promotes camaraderie among motorcycle organizations in the community.
