CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 21, 2010) - Blackline GPS Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BLN) ("Blackline" or the "Company") and the Love Ride are pleased to announce that Blackline GPS has been selected to provide the official real time tracking for the Love Ride 2010. The Love Ride takes place November 7th, beginning from Glendale Harley-Davidson and goes to Calamigos Ranch in Malibu Hills, the site of the original Love Ride in 1984. The goal of the Love Ride is to raise money for charitable causes, and this year will benefit Autism Speaks.

Oliver Shokouh, founder of the Love Ride said, "Over the years, the Love Ride became the largest motorcycle charity ride in the world and has raised millions of dollars for a variety of charities. To share the event with media, fans and people around the world, we wanted a way to track our entourage of riders and share their location with people around the world in real time as the ride progresses. The Escort Entourage provides the perfect solution and allows everyone a fun and simple way to follow along virtually".

Jay Leno, well known for being host of the Tonight Show, will be the Grand Marshal for the event. Mr. Leno has served as the Grand Marshal for every ride since 1985. The Love Ride has been billed as "The Largest One-Day Motorcycle Fund-Raising Event in the World." Other notables taking part include actors Peter Fonda and Robert Patrick as well as Harley-Davidson's Willie G. Davidson.

"We are excited to participate in the Love Ride and pride ourselves for being good stewards of community service. The Blackline platform will be a unique focal point for news media and charity sponsors to observe the Love Ride as hundreds of Harley Davidson riders ride to support Autism Speaks," said Blackline GPS President & CEO, Clark Swanson.
