A small event started 30 years ago with 40 people has turned into a major Christmas activity.
The Warrnambool Motorcycle Toyrun now boasts over 300 bikes, and is a major provider of gifts for the Salvation Army.
Event organiser Trevor Warnecke said it had been a long time but he was happy to keep going while the event was so well supported.
"I like doing it and helping the kids and Salvation Army, its a good thing to do," he said.
"Everyone else keeps following me, they love doing it as well.
"Last year we have around 330 people attend the ride, and we expect about the same this year. It seems to be getting bigger each year."
The only change to the 2019 toy run will be the distribution of a route map, after some riders lost their way in 2018.

Salvation Army Christmas Cheer Appeal coordinator Chris Philpot said the event was an important part of the group's calendar.
"The toy ride makes a huge difference to the assistance we can give in December," he said.
"It's not just toys, but non-perishable food as well which makes a difference."
Riders need to meet at 12.30pm at Raffertys Tavern for a 1pm departure on Saturday. The ride will take in Port Fairy, Koroit and Woodford before arriving at Lake Pertobe about 2.30pm for a free community barbecue.
Toys can be left at the Warrnambool Bendigo Bank and Port Fairy Bendigo Community Bank, or delivered to Lake Pertobe on the day.
