    I don't know if its been asked yet, but is anyone else here planning on going to the Toys for Tots run in Lacey next Saturday? If so, how about a bunch of us hack riders meet up somewhere and go in as a pack? Hawks Prairie diner or the north Costco parking lot would work.

    It's a low speed parade on a closed route, not a "ride".

    The wife and I do it each year and get our tree from a local farm on the way home. We plan on doing it if it isn't raining too bad.

    You're right on that one. It's still a lot of fun, just be prepared for 1-2 hours of bike-watching and socializing, and fifteen minutes of the "parade". It's for a good cause too. Bring a toy, get in for free.

    Too bad. I think it would have been fun to go in with a bunch of other hacks. Might be wet, but it's gonna be fun! Still have to swing by the store and buy a toy. Look forward to meeting those of you who'll be there.

    We will be there, my buddy blew out his knee and had it repaired a few weeks ago, we're going to shoehorn him in the hack and do it like we have for the last few years.
