Tens of thousands of bikers will vroom through Chicago Sunday during the 45th annual Toys for Tots Motorcycle Parade.
The route kicks off at Dan Ryan Woods and follows Western Avenue north for roughly 20 miles, ending at the campus of Lane Tech College Prep High School.
The event is billed by organizers as the world's largest motorcycle parade. Participants need to meet just two requirements to join the lineup: bring at least one new, unwrapped toy to donate, and each motorcycle must be street-legal.
Non-riders can donate toys at either the parade's start or end point.
To watch, or avoid, the parade, here's the timing: The first tier of approximately 5,000 riders will set out from Dan Ryan Woods at 9:30 a.m. Once this cohort has cleared the woods, there will be a pause of 15-20 minutes before the next group is released to allow regular traffic and pedestrian flow across Western Avenue.
It takes each group of riders 90 minutes to complete the route.
The collected toys will be given to children in need throughout Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.
