Thanks to the hard work of the organisers, it was a very good day.
Well done you lot!
Apologies to anyone if I got in your path during the ride but I intended to record as much as possible.
I managed to take 1 or 2 snaps of the day... 1,000 actually ! but have manged to whittle that down to 800 ish.

I will burn a disk for Dave shortly but if anyone needs a copy of any pic, please feel free to help yourselves. To download any pic, just view the image at whatever size you need (the album has 3 sizes thumb, normal & original) and right click your mouse button and then chose save image.
Any problems, please let me know.
That's an amazing collection of Cnx Toy Ride photos. A million thanks for capturing the fun & spirit of the event.
Now about this highlight.......... :lol: :wink: :wink:
Some photos I was able to snap during the day.
At Tesco Lotus
Special thanks go to the Chiang Mai Traffic Police for their help & support on the event.
These guys & gal did a great job blocking off intersections & controlling the traffic lights for a nice clean run through town.
At the X-Centre Zorb Ball site. Plenty of games & activities for the kids.
The Toy Ride is about helping kids & ensuring they have some fun on the day.
The kids won every “tug-of-war" game & it was not because the bikers weren’t trying. They were, but the kids were even more determined to win!!
Happy go-lucky enjoying herself with Franz Eastern Seaboard.

The best decorated bike & rider?
Marcus & Chris, thanks for coming & participating.
What the kids were waiting for
GT Rider (& lurker :wink: ) John "Jonadda" Nash played a great musical set with his band from Mr Guitar Man.
John & Co from the Guitar Man, many thanks for donating your time, coming & playing for just "a few" beers.
If you were impressed with the band, then check 'em out at Mr Guitar Man on Loi Kroa near the night bazaar.
