Unlike in previous years, the Dr Barnardo's Biker Toy Run was a bit of a wash out for us. Because of the festive Bracknell meet we could only catch the start at Foster Wheeler where 1500 bikers and 2000 people gather before the cruise down to Wokingham to deliver the presents. Sadly from the moment we got there the heavens had opened and a mixture of drizzle and downpours meant we only had a brief walk round. There were still some spectacular fancy dress efforts on show though.
In the lower car park the marshals gathered along with some of the bigger groups. We bumped into a work colleague of Kims who was busy waving riders into place.
In the top carpark more biker, trikes and quads were lined up. Santas were everywhere.
Sadly with the rain getting heavier we bailed out, I don't envy the riders standing around in the cold and wet before squelching across town. But once again they all did sterling work. By mid afternoon when the run was due in to Wokingham the rain had stopped and the sun was out. So hopefully the display at the school was a success.
