Renegade Toy Run 2010
|The Monday before the 2010 8th
Annual Renegade Toy Run, it was 81 degrees in Sacramento. Today, the
high was 55, windy and raining. Headed to Renegade Classics around
9:15am and about half way there, it started to sprinkle, then got a
little heavier as I rode into the parking lot. It was a good ride even
though it was a bit wet. 64 miles in sun, rain, and wind.
|At first glance, it looks like a potato.
It's my breakfast of champions...a maple bar!
|There weren't too many people in the store
at this time. It was nice and warm in there.
|Off in the corner, I saw Kathleen
Kinmont and Lorenzo
Lamas signing pictures.
|Got my pic with them. Kathleen was VERY
nice and friendly. Lorenzo never took off his sunglasses.
|Food table. Normally, I would have eaten
several donuts, but I just couldn't do it today.
|Inside the registration room/food room.
|Raffle prize table. I bought $5 worth. I hope I win something. :)||Lorenzo and Kathleen signing pics for
people. That's the store owner, Troy, standing in the background.
|From this view, the parking lot looks full. But this is only one row filled with bikes. Normally, there would be 3 or more rows.||Christmas tree bike. I think the bike just
to the left was the bike that went down as we were exiting the parking
lot. I had to stop just past the driveway, and I saw the bike laying in
the middle of the road. The guy was walking around and had a big wet
spot on his back from where he was lying on the rain-soaked road. His
friends moved his bike to the side of the road and we continued on.
|Stuffy bike! I followed this bike for a
while just before we arrived at Thunder Valley.
|Santa Sleigh bike.
|The guy in the upper left in yellow is the
front of the line. I wasn't too far away from the front.
|Troy, making announcements about the ride
and events happening out at Thunder Valley.
|Handing my traditional Nerf basketball hoop to the toy volunteer.||Dining area was outside, windy, and cold.
But if you were lucky to get a table near the heaters, it wasn't so
bad...I wasn't that lucky.
|Standing in line for food. Long line, but
it went pretty quick.
|Cute Santa Elf. ;-)
|My lunch, clockwise from the cookies:
Peanut butter cookies, pecan pie, shredded pork, bbq beef, roll, potato
salad, cornbread with beans on top. Oh, and a Diet Pepsi to counteract
all of the calories from the plate of food. :)
|Saw Santa in the middle of the casino.|
|Inside the events room.||This bike parked next to me. After we passed the guy that dropped his bike, about a 1/4 of a mile down the road, the people ahead of me start weaving to avoid something in the middle of the road. It was this bike's left saddlebag! I looked at it, and it had a few scratches on the back side of the bag. Not too bad.|
