More than 100 motorcyclists strapped toys to their bikes and paraded from Thunder Bay Harley-Davidson on Arthur St. to the Salvation Army on Cumberland St. Saturday.
“This is awesome,” said rider Diane Delin, who has taken part in the Toys for Tots motorcycle ride for three years.
“This is a great thing to do and we can’t do it any later in the year because it gets too cold.”
As the bikes arrived at the Salvation Army, the riders parked and carried in hundreds of toys that will be distributed to needy children for Christmas. Sporting a Santa-like white beard, Bryan Dika was among those delivering the games and stuffed animals.
“I went to the CLE, spent lots of money had some fun and got gifts for the kids,” he said. “Come Christmas time I come back here, dress up in a red suit and hand all this stuff out.”
