IN October 2011 the Love ride returns for the 28th time with Tonight Show host Jay Leno leading riders to Castaic Lake.

This year's event, which takes place on October 23, is being supported by Robert Patrick, Peter Fonda, Lorenzo Lamas, Larry Hagman and Willie G. Davidson.

"The Love Ride is truly unique because it's not just entertainment for charity," says event founder Oliver Shokouh. "It's a full-immersion experience that lets people participate in a way that raises the spirit of giving to high levels, mainly because it feels so good."

As in 2010, the Love Ride charity is Autism Speaks, the nation's largest autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism. Through the generosity of bikers and everyone involved year after year, the Love Ride can make a significant impact on the disorder.

This year, Love Ride greets a major new supporter, the Southern California Harley-Davidson Dealers Association. The 22-strong dealer group adds an important new feature to the event by offering each of their dealerships as launch points for the ride.

"Everyone involved is working in concert to make the Love Ride a most auspicious event," said Shokouh. "The cooperative spirit is just the antidote for the still-lingering effects of a tough recession. It reflects our values as well as those of our sponsors and the many volunteers needed to make the Love Ride 2011 another huge success."
