“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 men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and men’s mental health.” The annual Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is just three days away. There’s still time to register!
The annual Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is dedicated to fighting Prostate Cancer and donating to organizations that support men’s health education. It’s a cause we can all stand behind to support the men around us who are impacted by this disease. The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride supports the Movember Foundation, the world’s largest men’s health organization dedicated to men’s health awareness and cancer prevention. Over the course of the last fifteen years, DGR has contributed funds to over 1,200 men’s programs through the Movember Foundation. Causes like testicular cancer, men’s mental health and suicide prevention, and prostate cancer are the main causes supported by Movember through their programs. They do an incredible job at spreading awareness about these men’s issues and make a difference in each of our communities through their initiative.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is meant to support the global push for men’s health and an increase in education about these important issues. The aim is to support the men in our communities who are battling with these issues and need a helping hand.
It’s time to break out your favorite suit jacket and cuff links. This ride is described as being a “celebration of the art of being dapper and classic custom motorcycles.” Riders are encouraged to wear their finest suits, crisp ironed shirts, and stylish caps. Over 88,000 riders have already registered to attend this Sunday.
This ride is specifically dedicated to “cafe racers, bobbers, classic, tracker, scrambler, old school chopper, modern classic, sidecar, classic scooter, and brat styled motorcycles”. If you have a unique, vintage motorcycle, you’re in luck. It is highly encouraged that you bring your classic or custom motorcycle and your finest suit for this ride. If you have a different type of bike, they encourage you to donate or volunteer as they are working to keep this ride within this particular style.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is open to both men and women; we all have men in our lives who we love and support. There’s no entrance fee for the event, but riders are highly encouraged to donate to themselves and fellow riders.
So far there are over 120 rides established with the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride for 2018. Make sure to register and take part in a ride near you this Sunday, September 30th. It’s a great cause that supports men across the world — and who doesn’t like riding motorcycles in their finest suit?
