Love Ride has raised $24 million for charity through the years."It's very exciting to be able to do something for these worthwhile charities," Lamas said. "This year, all the proceeds are going to USO, which is a very important and timely charity, especially with so many men and women serving."
The national anthem is his favorite song to sing, Lamas said."I really enjoy the song and I enjoy how people respond to it," Lamas said. Lamas' favorite Love Ride moment is when the motorcycles pull out of Harley-Davidson of Glendale."You have a couple thousand bikes all together, leaving the dealership, getting on the 5 (freeway) and riding in a pack," Lamas said. "It's just an amazing spectacle to see."
A long-time motorcycle rider, Lamas started an online motorcycle company called Lorenzo Cycles in 2009 with television producer Chad Greulach.
The company caters to the motorcycle lifestyle, specializing in custom-made motorcycles and accessories including clothing and jewelry.For more infromation on the Love Ride 29
