Calder Park is the destination for the MRA(Vic) Toy Run. A fantastic location where motorbike riders from all over Victoria can share a fun filled day with their families to support the Salvation Army this Christmas, who are in need of toys and food.

This spectacular event and venue will be Melbourne’s premier ride this year. Mark your diary, don’t miss this one!

The MRAV Melbourne Toy Run has always been a popular ride with Victorian motorcyclists. Riders dress up their bikes, trikes and scooters with Christmas decorations and ride to a destination to give toys and food for the kids for Christmas. The Salvation Army trucks will be waiting to receive these generous gifts from the bikers.

We invite riders and passengers of all Motorbikes, from Trikes to Scooters of all shapes, sizes and vintage to participate.

Ride Report:

A small group left from the coffee shop this morning to participate in the annual Toy Ride. Wayne and Helene, Volvi, Avi, Sergie and myself. A reasonable number of bikes turned up and the ride to the venue Calder Park was conducted quite safely.

I stayed a little longer to inspect the race track I have competed on since 1970. Yes it really says it all about our age.
