The Chiangmai ToyRide is having another give away event at a needy Hmong school near Samoung. We have already donated a water system for their new school and on Oct 22 will be riding our bikes for a give away event to the school and kids themselves. Every school is different and in addition to the water system, we are providing football goals, marching band equipment, and sporting goods, plus toys for all the kids.

We will be bringing a clown, buying the kids lunch, and having a bit of fun including the now traditional tug of war game that the bikers have yet to win.
Come along for the ride and see for yourself how your support for the Chiangmai ToyRide can help the lives of these children.

All bikes big and small are welcome, and will be leaving Richco Motorsports on Whulai Rd. at 10:15 AM Oct 22 and arrive at the school about 11:00. Richco is the motorbike shop right behind the big cow on Whulai Rd.

I haven't been on a Toy Ride before, so please advise what to bring.
Toys for the kids? Cash donation for the school?
ie how best do we contribute apart from just riding along?
The best way to contribute for this event is to just Smile, Ride Along, and interact with all the great children.

We use funds raised from our main CMTR Event Sponsors, along with donations from participants at the main event, to do these Give Away events throughout the season. That is basically what the CMTR is about. Of course, as it is for the children, we never turn down a cash donation if you so desire, but don't feel obligated on the Give Away rides.

A little more info:

The location is approximately 30 Kilometers from Richco Motorsports on the "Samoeng Loop". It is all good road except for a steep uphill climb on the last leg to the school. It is paved, but could be a little dirty depending on the rain. Any road bike still should not have much difficulty.

And the children say to all............ PLEASE COME !!!!

Hi there guys

Is the school you refer to in Huai Khwang?

It is all good road except for a steep uphill climb on the last leg to the school
Is this the final steep one off to the left (if coming from the south) towards the cave or is it the school on the main track through Huai Khwang?

Huai Khwang - where is the cave

The old school is on the main track before coming into Huai Kwang. The new school is on a turn off to the right approx .5 km before what is shown as Huai Kwang on the GT-Rider map. I show 4.5km from the 1269 coming in from the south.

TO ALL;

Try this link. Chiang Mai ToyRide Events Map
It is a map of all CMTR event locations and links. Scroll down the list to Wat Prachakasam School and click on the title. You can zoom in and view the map, or in satellite mode (also Google Earth) you can see the construction site .

The map's dated a bit now, but the road in from Ban Klang Doi should be all concrete now, right Silverhawk?

What happened to your fan? Looks like an ER-6n, so I am interested....

Don't think I can do a Friday, however, if the mood strikes I might show up. I'd have to come from Pai...

Not many responses to your question! "So who's coming along? :wink:"
How many riders are you expecting to turn up?

Regards
We never know for sure. GT-Rider isn't the only source for our participants. We expect these to be smaller events than the main one, obviously. The weather isn't exactly cooperating. We usually get between 10-30 bikes for these activities. Although we use trucks and cars to deliver the goods to the school, we always hope for a good turnout of bikes as the kids love to see them. Hope more riders can make it. Thanks! :thumbup:

:sad1:: I dont really know. The F1 red light came on so I took it into the shop yesterday where they plugged it into the computer and the fan is apparently the problem. Kwaka have to get one from BKK so I am waiting. I went over some newly made up road the other day on the way back to CM from Pai and I am wondering if the black sticky tar gummed it up. Will find out more when I collect the bike.

:clap: Thank you for all the replies.
As some of you may have noticed, the weather the last 36 hrs has been less than perfect.
So as a precaution a school & road inspection has been made today - Thursday 21st - & everything is still ok = the event is still on as scheduled. :)
Rail, hail or shine: See you all at Richco Motorsports tomorrow morning - Friday 22nd October 2010 - for a 10.15AM departure. :thumbup:

If we have 'Rail or Shine' I will definately come but if the temperature drops below Zero and we have significant Hail or Ice on the roads, I will give it a miss for safety reasons. :lol-sign:

Clown time & queued up, ready for action...

The Chiang Mai ToyRide clowns are always an absolute winner & it is incredible to watch the kids "entranced" by their first real live encounter with a clown!

But the Chiang Mai ToyRIde is not just about teddy bears, toys & games for poor kids.

The Chiang Mai ToyRIde donated 5 water tanks + a filtration system to the school for them to set up a clean water supply.
cnx-toyride-nam-som-23october2010-043.jpg


The Chiang Mai ToyRIde also donated metal cabinets & lockers for two poor kindergartens in the same village
