46th Annual Toys For Tots Parade
KICKSTANDS UP: 7:30am @ Lake Shore or 8:00am @ Oasis
ORGANIZERS: NO ORGANIZERS / Everyone is on their own…
DEPARTURE: Lake Shore parking lot / Irving Park Oasis on #294 southbound
DESTINATION: Toys for Tots Parade
LEVEL: Non-chapter ride & Dan Ryan Woods at 83rd & Western Ave.
This is an annual ride. For those that want to brave the elements, one group leaves Lake Shore HD at 7:30am lead by George Lang, goes down #294 to the oasis at Irving Park Road to meet the other group lead by John Sweeney. From there we all ride down to Dan Ryan Woods for the start of the parade. STAY TO THE RIGHT AND GO THROUGH THE PAY TOLL LANES, so that you can exit to the oasis.
This is not a chapter ride, but a friends ride and the weather can be anything from 50 degrees down to (one year) 11 degrees. So if you can (and want to), join us for this very worthwhile event.
Great event and it helps so many kids.
NOTE: FYI everyone that might want to go, the gas station is there, but the McDonald’s is gone. :–( Eat somewhere else, but I’m assuming they’ll have coffee at the gas station.
