The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) will see natty riders, on all makes and models of motorcycle, don their finest attire and tour the town.
Aiming to raise awareness of a disease that currently affects 250,000 men in the UK, the charitable event will bring together the world’s motorbike community for a well-dressed day of fun, camaraderie – and fundraising for Prostate Cancer UK.
London's riders will take to the saddle and tour the capital city; dressed in tweed, suits, bow ties and sporting eccentric facial hair. There are only two rules to follow – dress like a gentleman and ride your bike politely with appropriate character!
Mark Bishop, director of fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, said: “We’re really excited to be a part of the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, and incredibly grateful for the support. We are currently engaged in our high profile campaign, Men United v Prostate Cancer, which aims to build a united front of men fighting against the disease. By raising funds every distinguished fine gentleman is joining the team and helping more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life. We thank everyone involved in this fantastic event.”
Supported by Triumph, the company is offering a new Thruxton as a competition prize.
