Bikers Olympia WA Toy Run
#1
Just got back from our city's annual Olympia Toy Run. where thousands of bikers showed up in below freezing temperatures to deliver toys and donations for kids for Christmas! The tradition started 34 years ago when 27 bikers organized a fund raising ride to provide toys to needy children, it's grown every year since, last year we had 18,000 bikers show up, to early to know how many showed up today.

It's amazing that thousands of people can work so closely together and not have one single incident and when they rode out from the staging area, the area was as clean as when they arrived.

Here's some pics I took this morning of these great Americans:

Hi Jim & Jutta,

Yeah, that's an awesome sight and event for sure.

We 've got trouble for the bikers, and more in particular for the outlaw bikies down under in Oz at the moment, as the Ausralian Government tries to crack down on the outlaw gangs and the increasing crime problems associated with them.

The victims caught in the crossfire are the bikers not involved with crime, as they are being harrassed as well as the bikie gangs.

Cheers!
