The Rio Rancho Toy Run was something my wife really enjoyed last year when we went and she wanted to go again. We got up early and left the house at 8:00, rode over to Mac’s La Sierra on Central and grabbed some breakfast. There were 8 other bikes in their parking lot, all headed
to the Toy Run.

I had planned this ride for last Saturday but a storm hit the state and I had to postpone it.

My daughter had practice and the wife didn’t want to deal with the cold weather, so I did this trip alone.
