The Sleigh Riders Gear Up For Sunday’s Big Motorcycle Ride
It’s a sight to see. 300+ motorcycles, all with toys strapped to their sleds, making sure they do their part to brighten some kids Christmas.
There is no doubt we have had nicer weather for the Sleigh Riders Motorcycle Toy Run but then again, we’ve had worse to. Doesn’t look like any big threat of snow but it will be cold for sure. A good time to break out that fancy heated gear and see how well it works.
Those of you who have done this ride know how fun it is and this will be the best year ever with the police escorted ride going to Windsor this year and the entire route will be blocked for our parade ride. Let’s be honest: 300+ motorcycles riding down the road in parade formation with toys strapped on the bikes in warm weather is really awesome but to see 300+ motorcycles in 35 degree weather makes it even more awesome. Think of the message it will send to all those who see us Sunday and the dedication for what we are doing.
The kids are worth it! So no excuses. Dress warm, suck it up and let’s do this. Don’t forget to bring that brand new unwrapped toy and for every toy you donate you get a raffle ticket to win some of the great prizes, and we have some good ones including a two day getaway in the mountains.
