5th Annual All City Toy Ride

December 9, 2010

Santa Rida at Highland Park Metro Station for the 2006 All City Toy Ride.

If you have ever wondered how many toys you can carry on a bicycle, this Friday night at 8:30 is when you can find out. Friday, December 10th is the 5th Annual Midnight Ridazz All City Toy Ride.

The 5th Annual All City Toy Ride marks a milestone for the loosely knit Midnight Ridazz bicycle consortium. It was the first All City Toy Ride in 2006 that really established Midnight Ridazz as something more that just a monthly party ride. And every year since then, cyclists have gathered around the county to ride like spokes on a wheel to the heart of Los Angeles at the Plaza on Olvera Street. This year there are 13 gathering points, including one for Northeast Los Angeles at our Highland Park Metro Station.

The N.E.L.A. All City Toy Ride rides at 9pm for Olvera Street, then heads to an undisclosed location with a thousand or so other ridazz to drop off toys for The Alliance For Childrens’ Rights, then followed by a parté. Bring a toy ($25 or less), lights, and a lock. No rain expected this year, but Santa(s) are.

If that wasn’t enough opportunity to give to less-fortunate children, (because giving is awesome!) Locally, 90042-based punk zine, Razorcake and Zocaloc are having a Toy Drive at Highland Park’s American Legion Post 206 on Saturday, December 11th (NELA Art Night) starting at 8pm. Bands, food, drinks, and toys to be given to needy kids.

Then on Sunday, December 12th, from 12:30 to 5pm, The Echo Park Yacht Club throws its 2nd Annual Toy Drive and Dodgeball Spectacular at The Glassell Park Rec Center, located at 3650 Verdugo Road, Los Angeles 90065.

Good times, good causes, good weekend.
