Santa trades in sleigh for one fierce ride

Original Post: Newark Patch.com

Forty motorcycle clubs from all over the Bay Area drove their muscular Harley Davidson bikes to Newark last weekend, bringing toys and other gifts to low-income families.

“The children are more excited about the bikers, more than anything” said Union City resident and mother of two, Alisha McPheeters.

After the bikers’ grand entrance, the kids lined up to take a picture with the “Santa Biker.”

Next – kids visited a room stuffed with toys.

Each kid entered the room with a biker, who helped pick out whatever gift that the boy or girl wanted to bring home.

The toy drive was held along Ruschin Drive in Newark on Sunday, December 12. It was organized by the Tri-Cities League of Volunteers different bikers associations in the Bay Area.

The families from Newark, Union City, Fremont and other neighboring cities attended the toy drive.

Patch.com Reporter Richgail Enriquez  interviewed the bikers, the kids, and the families who enjoyed the festivities.
