Santa Clarita / Antelope Valley : Actor Lamas to Lead ‘Ride for Life’

About 2,000 motorcyclists are expected to participate Sunday in Lorenzo Lamas’ second annual “Ride for Life” from Newhall to Lake Casitas.

The television star of “Renegade” will lead the ride, which begins at 10 a.m. at Valencia Plaza, 24508 Lyons Ave., and will wind along California 126 and up through the Ojai Valley on California 150 before arriving at the lake, 70 miles away.

Cyclists will pay $30 each to participate in the ride, which includes a barbecue lunch with live music and other entertainment at the lake. Profits will go to the World Children’s Transplant Fund, which provides donor organs for children.

Entertainment will include Lamas’ TV sidekick Brandscombe Richmond and his band, the Renegade Posse. A second set will be performed by Texas Flood. Comedians also will be on hand, along with Ojai area vendors selling everything from food to motorcycle paraphernalia.


Organizers encourage those interested to sign up in advance, as the 2,000 slots for the event may sell out, said Dana Tkac, ride coordinator and executive director of the World Children’s Fund.

If slots are still available, participants can register from 8 to 10 a.m. the day of the ride at the starting point. For more information or to receive a registration form by FAX, call 818-905-9283.
