Hi folks

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.

You can see them here ...

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.

Ally

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!!
