The Advertiser - - NEWS - ROBYN DOU­GLASS

THOU­SANDS of riders are ex­pected to take over the road when the an­nual Mo­tor­cy­cle Riders’ As­so­ci­a­tion of SA holds its 40th an­nual toy run to­mor­row morn­ing.

The run, which starts at 11am at Vic­to­ria Park, will take mo­torised two-wheel­ers in a con­voy up to Calling­ton.

Riders all bring a gift which the Vin­nies dis­trib­ute to fam­i­lies do­ing it tough at Christ­mas.

MRASA toy run site man­ager Cathy Lux said riders rode at the stately pace of 40km/h in the city and 80km/h on the free­way. “It’s not a race, it’s a cav­al­cade,” she said. Nola Wat­son, from the Bay­side HOG (Har­ley Owners’ Group), said she was look­ing for­ward to lead­ing Fa­ther Christ­mas.

“It’s a great cause, tak­ing toys for the kids and you dec­o­rate up your bike – that’s what it’s all about,” she said.
