final countdown to Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride

On Sunday 28 September, hundreds of riders from across the country will meet up to give a two-wheeled ‘salute’ to prostate cancer – a disease that kills 10,000 men every year in the UK. A global phenomenon taking place in 250 cities around the world, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) will see natty riders, on all makes and models of motorcycle, don their finest attire and tour their local towns and cities.

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.

To mark the final countdown, organisers of DGR’s flagship London event have now confirmed the meeting location for the day’s retro ride out – which is available from the website:

Riders will take to the saddle and take a tour of 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!

Paul Stroud, director of sales and marketing for Triumph – the event’s global sponsors – commented: “The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is a fantastic idea, based on riding bikes with friends and enjoying the camaraderie that this entails.

“With only a few days to go until DGR comes to the UK, we’re calling for as many riders as possible to get into the distinguished spirit and register their attendance. If being part of such a momentous ride out wasn’t enough, we are even offering one lucky rider with the chance to win a brand-new Triumph Thruxton. The competition is open to any rider that raises over £100, with an additional entry for every extra £100 raised by a rider/pillion.”
