Donate a Toy to the SC Velo Toy Drive

San Dimas, California (December 5, 2017) – The Southern California Velo Cycling Club (SC Velo) and Incycle Bicycle Stores are sponsoring a Christmas Toy Collection Drive which began on Friday November 24th and will conclude on Saturday December 16th.  A Toy Ride will be held on Sunday, December 17th to take the collected toys to the San Dimas Sheriff’s station so that they can be distributed to needy families.  Everyone is invited to join with SC Velo and Incycle to support this worthy cause by donating toys and/or participating in the Toy Ride.

New unwrapped toys can be left in collection bins at  Incycle Bicycle Stores in San Dimas, Chino, Pasadena, and Rancho Cucamonga ( see: ) between now and December 16th. 

The SC Velo Toy Ride will depart from the San Dimas Incycle store on Sunday, December 17th at about 9:00 AM for an easy, no-drop, 1 hour+ ride to the San Dimas Sheriff’s Station to turn the collected toys over to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department representatives.

All toys collected as part of this drive will be delivered to kids of needy families by deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s San Dimas station.  Last year, the San Dimas station was able to help a large number of families during the Christmas holiday because of our Toy Drive.

It's been a Thanksgiving weekend of gorgeous rides sandwiched in between parent care activities. The mountain provides respite and distance from those responsibilities. Sometimes not enough.

It was briskly autumn today the last day before standard time. Cool as if the breeze had thoughts of snow on of the mountain. Plenty of traffic motoring today. Warming up the muscles and joints took longer this morning. Thought I recognized Scott P. Racing past the shed. Got to chat with Chuck who climbed 14,000 feet this week.

Last evening ride before the time change. Having used the elliptical machine on Monday, my legs were screaming what's this bicycle motion going on. It was a pretty ride and my time was good just under my "baseline" time.
