Valdosta - They travel by motorcycle instead of a sleigh, but to less fortunate kids in Lowndes County, the Outback Riders are a real life Santa Claus. "A lot of kids wouldn't have Christmas gifts on Christmas morning if it wasn't for the Outback Riders," said Jimmy Land.
For the 13th straight year, the motorcycle club is hosting the Outback Riders Toy Ride. "The first year we started out with about 100 bikes and last year we had about 1,000," said Don Brotherton.
Over the years, the event has given thousands of children a Christmas they could only dream of. "Last year the mayor had to call in extra trucks to pick up the toys we had so many," said Brotherton.
"Its a really good feeling to see children who wouldn't normally get anything get something for Christmas," said Lance Corporal Jeremy Brown.
The ride is free, all you need for a ticket to join is an unwrapped toy. "We're expecting about 1,500 motorcycles, the first 1,000 riders get event pins and decals and we're just going to have a good time," said Brotherton.
And everyone who rides get a chance to win a toy of their own, a play house built by Barker Realty. "Bring a toy, you get a ticket, and a chance to win the house," said Landy Barker.
Registration for the toy ride starts at noon Saturday at the Lake Park Outlet Stores. The first bike rolls out at 1:30.
