Christmas Charity Rides 2002

A few of our members went on a couple of Christmas rides for the festive season and Charities.  Here's a few pictures of the runs.

Participants were Brent and Rae, Charleen and Clint and Turbo and Wendy.  Along with Brent's son Michael and other family members.

First one was the Ipswich Christmas Parade where we decorated our 'Wings with tinsel and toys and paraded down the main street along with many others.

And a big red bow

All the kids lining the streets loved the lights, colour and music provided by the 'wings and we were cheered all the way, despite being in the middle of a rainstorm.

All ready to go.  No photos after this as the heavens opened up for the whole ride.

Next was the Lockyer Valley Ulysses Toy Run.  It included around 260 bikes who gave heaps of toys to the Salvation Army for distribution to needy kids.

Naturally, Turbo's was the most overloaded bike there. That's daughter Chantal aboard while Rae and Tegan look on.

Michael's all done up while Brent dresses up "Purple Reign"

"Lucille" only done up a little. A Salvo band played Chrissy tunes in the background.

We were in about the middle.
