    This is such a tremendous effort for such a great cause to help those in need. I have wanted to go for many years, but years of having to work weekends prevented me. I went for the first time last year! What an AMAZING ride!! I was so moved by the over whelming gratitude of the town’s citizens and loved the excitement of 1,000′s watching the parade of bikes pass by. I’m a luck girl to be able to go again this year! CAN’T WAIT!!!!

    Hi there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so
    I came to check it out. I’m definitely loving the information.

    I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers!

    Terrific blog and superb design.

    Please, please, please, please post a map of which streets you will be using!!! Every year we request this of you, the police, etc. I don’t want to pay $2 to the Union to get the map. I don’t even know if the Union has a map online.

    Also, please ask the police to put up signs a day or two before on the roadways letting us know what the closures will be.
    Glad that you are collecting toys for the kids, but some of us need to get our kids to their dance performances in Grass Valley on time!

    When i was a kid i was poor and i got toys from the run, it made Christmas better for me. When i got my first bike i started donating and i have been there 6 years in a row now, yes even the year with crazy rain. Im looking forward to it this year.

  6. Jordan says:

    Should the gifts brought be wrapped or unwrapped?

  7. Steve says:

    The best run we have ever been on. Our group of 25 bikes (with ladies on back) join every year. What a joy to see all the children line the streets. Warms our hearts

    My son bought 2 stuffed bears for donation to the toy run. When and where can we get them to you for distribution?

    • Toy Run says:

      Food and Toy Run donations can be dropped off at the Northern Mines building at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. The building is located near back entrance (Gate 4) on Friday, Dec. 7th, between 4-6:30p.m. (Look for a bunch of cars parked around the building, as we will be there setting up for Saturday’s event). Or you can drop off on Saturday morning around 11:00a.m. just before the Toy Run starts.
      Thank you so much for your care and donation!

        Hi Virginia,
        You can order T-shirts and pins here on the website — just click the orange DONATE button and let us know the number of shirts and pins you’d like to purchase. Be sure to include sizes too and we will send them to you. T-shirts are $25 each, pins are $5, and $10 for shipping the whole order. If you live in the area you can pick up your order, just let us know when placing your order.

        Basically the ride starts at the Rood Center in Nevada City and ends at the Fairgrounds 5 miles away. Here is the link to route map.

    The Auburn moose riders will be coming – should be a great day.

  14. Wanted to attend your event for years, but work has always got in the way. I’m really hoping to make it out this year. I currently hold the motorcycle world land speed record (world’s fastest motorcycle) at 376 mph with a top speed of 394. Don’t know if having a local semi-celeb in the motorcycle community would be a benefit. Love what you guys are doing. Me and my wife (Tricia) are planning to attend for the first time this year. Excited to see the kids faces and meet with fellow motorcyclists.
