France 64 Xmas/Noel ToyRun

Bernard Page

CHRISTMAS TOY RUN! calling all bikers. for years in London we have done a toy run - 1000's of bikers meet on a sunday morning with a few toys each, wrapped, dropped into a van, which then escorts the riders in convoy to a few hospitals where the toys are delivered to children. Bikers all dress in Father Christmas kit and dress their bikes up too. I want to put this together in SW France starting next year and will soon start a FB page to "like" to build a database to get it underway for next year. Any bikers on SFN up for this awesome ride for a good cause? Let's see how many we can get for our first year....I am waiting for pics from to create the page in the coming weeks and will repost here once up.

that would be realy super ....

HI Marijke. I propose that we get the Toyruns on the map to build a database of participants and then see if we can help you out in anyway. Please look out for updates here. Thanks.

Great, thanks Glen. I will post an update in here as soon as we get the details lined up.

Hey Martin. Sounds good. I will post in here as soon as i have the details to start to circulate.

would be nice to find thing like that to raise money for my school in Panama ....

Mostly in Malta now!! We have a house near Lannemezan in Hautes-Pyrenees that we were living in full time until about four weeks ago, but have now moved out to Malta. We will be coming back on a regular basis though.

For the organised charity runs, let me have the details as soon as they are sorted out and I can advertise them on my Midi-Pyrenees guide site as well as on here.

I understand the concerns over Easter, but it does not need to be bang on Easter, even the week before is good. Most of the ones I have been involved with took eggs and toys to childrens hospitals or special needs schools and the like. Just another excuse to get out on the bike and also show the caring side of bikers - something that our image in UK desperately needs!!

ps - riding with a guy from capbreton from 1pm today - through pyranese and back. get in touch if you want to jopin on somewhere. 0635255836.

Hey Martin. Excellent. Will keep you posted with details. I have once concern about the easter egg run....may be difficult/sensitive to do before actual easter sunday because of events on the christian calendar. And difficult on Easter Sunday because of most people having family commitments. I am also keen to ride though. We are you based. Let's get some rideouts happenning?

Great. I will keep you guys posted on developments. I plan to have the page up by mid January (waiting on pics) and then we will start to grow the database.

Sounds like a great idea. How about an Easter Egg run as well? Any excuse to get out on the bike.
