The Greeley Stampede parade is turning out to be one of the funnest events for the Sleigh Riders and this year was no exception with motorcycles coming in for coffee, juice and breakfast and making those last minute preparations. Best parade ever!

We just couldn't have asked for a nicer day to be a kid again. What kid doesn't love a parade, motorcycles and Santa Claus. Sure it seems a bit odd to see folks wearing Santa hats and packing toys in July but that's what makes us Sleigh Riders.

We almost doubled our numbers from last year with 44 bikes in formation this go round, led by Santa himself and Mrs. Claus as well.  I won't try and thank each of you individually for fear of forgetting someone (I'm 50 now) but you all know who you are. You came through today and it's because of individuals like each and every one of you who make this stuff possible.

We were seen today (and heard) and that increases awareness to who we are and what we do. Without you we are silent. You, are the true hero's today.

From the Sleigh Riders Motorcycle Toy Run...Happy 4th of July!
