Bicyclists are invited to gather on Nov. 3 for the next Toys for Tots Bicycle Ride, a non-motorized event that benefits the U.S. Marine Corps’ annual holiday toy collection drive.

Riders will meet at 1 p.m. in the parking lot of Exploration Place, 300 N. McLean Blvd., then follow an approximately 6 1/2-mile path to a donation site at Shelter No. 1 in Sedgwick County Park, 6501 W. 21st St. North.

Participants are asked to donate new, unwrapped toys; cash; or nonperishable food that can be strapped to their bicycles for the ride. Lee’s Bike Shop, event sponsor, will provide a van to haul larger gifts. Items will still be collected at the park shelter if inclement weather occurs.

Toys for Tots needs gifts for older girls and asks that no books be donated. For more information about the bicycle toy run, call 316-978-9623.
