Toyrun 2007

The 2007 Toyrun was last Sunday, and it was a particularly special one as it was the 25th Anniversary.

As usual, it was great fun. They estimate there were 6000 bikes at Maynardville, although it seemed like more! And this time I was riding in the thick of it - bikes as far as you could see in front of you, bikes next to you, and if you got a chance to turn around, bikes as far as you could see behind you! It really is the most amazing feeling, and the atmosphere is incredible. So many people lining the roads, clapping and cheering you on, trying to touch the bikers - it really makes you feel good. And of course, the most important part is the toys for the kids; they had two full trailers of toys at Maynardville alone.

We had tried to organise all the bikers from work to go together. Unfortunately it ended up with only two of us being able to make it, and then we couldn't find each other in the crowd at Ottery - and looking at the pic below, you can see why - and that was only a tiny section of the parking area! (Mine's the one on the right, in the front of the photo).

Unfortunately, it's crappy cellphone photos again, but here are a couple of photos from Maynardville:
