Huddy Park: 301 Shore Drive, Highlands, United States



  • Century Course - 100 miles - 100 Mile Rider
  • Sprint Course - 35 Miles - 35 Mile Rider


Formerly known as Ride to REINVENT, the Douglas Elliman Ride for Love supports God’s Love We Deliver – a charity improving the health of men, women and children living with illnesses by alleviating hunger. The Ride is now open to the public – invite friends, family or clients to join us in giving back to the community.

To encourage riders with all levels of experience we proudly feature 2 courses that end in Atlantic City, NJ - 100 miles (beginning in Highlands, NJ) and 35 miles (beginning in Bass River, NJ) Free transportation is provided from Manhattan to the start line. There's no entrance fee, BUT you need to raise money via Crowdrise (or use your credit card to donate) – the suggested minimum is $1,000. Last year, the average rider raised $2,600.  Don't worry, we don't charge your card if you don't reach your goal but you must fundraise in order to ride. Raise some money - you'll feel amazing afterwards!

 The Details:

  • Choose to ride the 35-mile Sprint course or 100-mile Century course
  • Both courses are fully marked with signage, and also available on MapMyRide
  • Official DE rest areas along both courses with snacks, water and restrooms
  • Support vehicles and a certified bike mechanic will follow you the entire way
  • Riders must raise a minimum of $1,000 (we’ll show you how!) to benefit God’s Love We Deliver

 Bonus Perks for Riders and Volunteers:

  • Free rider kit including a DE Ride for Love bike jersey
  • Complimentary rider and volunteer apprecitation dinner Saturday night after the ride
  • DE agents only: Free registration for the upcoming 2019 REINVENT conference after raising a minimum of $1,000

How the Ride For Love Began…

Whilst sitting at his desk back in the summer of 2011, ride founder Max Dobens decided that it would be a good idea to ride his bike 100 miles to the annual Douglas Elliman sales meeting in Atlantic City. Having never ridden more than 70 miles before, he felt compelled to lead by example showing the agents that they should push themselves and do something that they felt uncomfortable doing to help them improve. That year he raised $3,508 riding alone.  

 In 2018, we have opened up the Ride to the general public for the first time. In our 6th year of the Ride, we have raised more than $650,000 from over 150 total riders to date.

God's Love We Deliver is the New York metropolitan area's leading provider of life-sustaining meals and nutrition counseling for people living with severe illnesses. Begun as an HIV/AIDS service organization, today God's Love provides for people living with more than 200 individual diagnoses. Meals are individually tailored for each client by one of their Registered Dietitians, and all clients have access to unlimited nutrition counseling. All of the agency's services are provided free of charge. For more information visit
