Observers, we understand there are many that like to view the ride from the side of the highway, this years ride will be taking largely the same route until the railway round-about (Near the ABC Studios in Hobart) This is due to the COVID testing clinic occupying and needing access around PW1 the ride is not ending in Salamanca this year.
The weather forecast isn’t looking the greatest for tomorrow so please keep an eye on forecasts, if you are unable to make it we will be in touch with all ticket holders who have not collected their merchandise after the toy run has concluded to discuss collection options.
As with previous years all bikes are to be road worthy and registered, Tasmania Police will be there on the day and will be performing registration spot checks and whilst the Toy Run is a community driven event they will not hesitate to give somebody a ticket.
Please ride safe everyone, and thank you for your support!
