Due to the current anti-motorcycle climate, the social club that has run the Long Flat Pub Run event for the past 20 years has made a decision not to run it this year. The social club is unwilling to have the patrons of the rally potentially harassed by police. We would like to thank everyone for their support and patronage over the past years. Tis has enabled us to help the Long Flat community with donations for the hospital, local school, ambulance, fire brigade, pre-school etc and it is a pity that we will be unable to do that this year. Once again, thank you all for your support in the past years - safe riding.
THE PENINSULA TOY RUN. Frankston, Vic. Saturday, December 6, 2014. Includes a memorial for John Smollen. TOY RUN organiser for many years who, sadly, took his last ride. Departs Frankston Pier for Rosebud at 10 am sharp.
Australian TOY RUNs began in Perth, Newcastle and Melbourne in the 1970s. In 2014 there are more than 50 in cities and towns across OZ. If you want to make a positive statement about being Australian and being a rider, make the effort, grab an Aussie flag and fly it at a TOY RUN. Help us get the best things about Christmas in Australia and Australian motorcycling into the main stream media.
GIFTS. New toys and clothes do a lot of good. Pre-loved soft toys can be a problem for charities
because they have to pay for them to be cleaned. Tinned food means a person who might go
hungry at Christmas gets a feed. And, of course money is most welcome. Even a single coin
makes a difference. Lots of single coins make a big difference.
SAFETY. All road laws apply. Please do not overtake on the ride. If you want to leave the run,
indicate left, pull over when it's safe and wait for the column to pass before moving on.
