Love Ride 26, slated for October 25, 2009, has been canceled. The announcement was made by Love Ride founder Oliver Shokouh, who cited the weak economy as the reason for the event’s cancellation.
In place of the usual event, Glendale Harley, Home of the Love Ride, is sponsoring an autograph session with Peter Fonda and free movie screening, commemorating the 40th Anniversary of Fonda’s starring role in "Easy Rider." The event will take place at the dealership (3717 San Fernando Rd. in Glendale) Friday, October 23rd from 4-10pm.
The countdown to LOVE RIDE 26 begins this Saturday, August 22 with a kick-off celebration and block party at Glendale Harley from 3:00PM-9:30PM. In addition to enjoying the festivities, those attending the party can be among the first to register for the legendary ride–the largest one-day motorcycle fundraising event in the world.
