The Toy Ride lives!

Or at least a version of it does.

Moderate ride to Amlings Cycle, Leaving Panera Friday, 12/10 @ 9am

After some discussion, Amlings decided why not make it a ride to bring Toys to Amlings for the Toys for Tots program, and have a kind of open house when folks arrive complete with snacks and beverages. Unfortunately and unlike Corcoran’s, the Amlings Guinness tap is on the fritz so it’s B.Y.O.B. if you feel so inclined.

So this is the plan. On Friday, Dec. 10, 2021, we will ride to Amlings Cycle Shop, 8140 N Milwaukee Ave, Niles (ideally with unwrapped toys or children's books) and hang out for a little while before heading back to Wilmette! Amlings will be open from 8 AM until noon, providing snacks and beverages.  They will also have a fire going out back but still, dress appropriately.

Last and if you’d like, bring some snacks to be shared. This would preferably be something like cookies or cake. Mashed potatoes or Brussels sprouts, not so much!

So let's grab some toys and head over to Amlings on Friday, 12/10 for some snacks and camaraderie! I will have room in my panniers if anyone needs assistance with toy transportation and Anne Glaser has graciously offered to meet us at Panera and transport any toys by car that don't fit in Will's panniers!

Here's the route:

We should are back in Wilmette before the predicted rain but you might want to bring your rain jacket just in case:
