Motorcycle riders from Golden are invited to participate in the Invermere Motorcycle Toy Run on Sunday Sept. 9.

The event, being organized by Ladies Born to Ride Motorcycle Club, will begin at 9:30 a.m. at Higher Ground coffee shop in Radium.

Riders will depart from there at 10:30 a.m., and ride to Lake Louise, then Golden, and back to Invermere for a meal at Lakeside Pub.

“If anyone from Golden is interested in participating they can meet us in Radium, and either break off when we get to Golden, or continue on with us back to Invermere,” said organizer Angelle Colli.

“It’s just a great excuse to go for a ride. It should be a great ride in September because it’s quieter, but still warm.”

Colli anticipates the ride will take four to five hours, depending on how many riders show up.

There is no pre-registration. Anyone interested in joining can just show up with a donation (either toys or money) for the Invermere Christmas Bureau.

The toys and money raised go to families in need at Christmas time from around the Columbia Valley.

If you need any more information, you can contact Colli at 250-341-5646.
