I've been asked to advise you that this year they will not allow QUADS, PEE-WEE'S, OFF ROADS OR PIT BIKES and Possibly small SCOOTERS. Do not be disappointed if they haul you off the road - you have been warned.
CHALLENGE: 1) How many SANTA'S will be riding in the Mass Ride? Last year we made a grand effort to get into the SA Guiness Book of Records - Can we do it this year? The Durban Scootz Club really went all out - are we going to let them win again this year?
2) Encourage as many members, bikers, and for those that dust their scoots off once a year for the Toy Run, to be part of this exciting event. How many people can you encourage to this event this year that were'nt there last year? There's more bikes on the road now so you should'nt have too much of a problem as long as their bike is capable!
Once a year we have this opportunity to show the public who we are and to change their minds about bikers and biking in general - so do you think we can behave just a little?
ENTRY: BRING LOTS OF TOYS!
If you bring 2nd hand Toys - please ensure that they are clean and in good repair.
(In other words a puzzle must have ALL the pieces! and the books, all their pages! etc)
You do NOT need to wrap them - we have to unwrap the gift anyway.
