The 2018 Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride is coming up on September 30th! There are rides planned for many, many, places, and one of them is probably near you!

Join the one near you. It's fun, it's for a good cause, and it gives you an excuse to grow out your mustache and dust off that bow tie.

Or, of course, feel free to donate or sponsor a rider too! ( My page is here: https://www.gentlemansride.com/rider/DavidHandy211024 )



RIDING DAPPER FOR A CAUSE: A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN'S RIDE.
On Sunday September 30th 2018, over 120,000 distinguished gentlefolk in over 650 cities worldwide will don their cravats, tustle their ties, press their tweed, and sit astride their classic and vintage styled motorcycles to raise funds and awareness for menís health, specifically prostate cancer and men's mental health.

The Distinguished Gentlemanís Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia by Mark Hawwa. It was inspired by a photo of Mad Menís Don Draper astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit. Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way to combat the often-negative stereotype of men on motorcycles, whilst connecting niche motorcycle communities together.

That first ride in 2012 brought together over 2,500 riders across 64 cities. The success of the event encouraged the founder to consider how it could be used to support a worthy cause.
