Hogs to roll as Toy and Rod Run returns

The North Island will host hordes of Harleys this weekend as the annual Toy and Rod Run between Port McNeill and Port Hardy returns.

PORT McNEILL—The North Island will host hordes of Harleys this weekend as the annual Toy and Rod Run between Port McNeill and Port Hardy returns for its 2014 edition.

The ride, a benefit for B.C. Children’s Hospital, will be followed by the annual Pig Roast and Stomp at the Hyde Creek home of Darcy  and Annie Leblanc.

The bikers, who will arrive from all points of the Island and, in some cases, beyond, will gather Saturday at 11 a.m. at Port McNeill Community Hall before departing for the run to Port Hardy. There, they’ll line out their dozens of big cycles for display at noon on Market Street, in front of the Welcome to Port Hardy sign in Carrot Park.

From there, they will return to Port McNeill and a gathering at Gus’s Bar and Grill, where their donations of toys and other items are traditionally piled high on the pool table.

Finally, it’s on to 704 Eagleridge Rd. in Hyde Creek for the Pig Roast and Stomp featuring the live music of the Jam Shack Araknids and the ever popular Biker Games. The dinner and music is open to the public; tickets are $30 and are available in advance at Port McNeill Flower Shoppe and at Timberland Sports. For more info, call 250-902-9527.
