The first Bishops' Stortford DGR has so far raised
over £22,000 for charity
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, by Mark Hawwa in 2012. Year after year, the ride unites vintage style motorcycle riders to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health.
2023 saw over 100,000 riders taking part worldwide and raising nearly $7million
Goldtop were this year's headlining sponsor for the first ever Bishop's Stortford Ride, as well as being the first stop on an incredibly thought-out route!
The ride was spectacular, gliding through the Essex countryside as the sun was shining down. Stopping first at Down Hall Hotel & Spa for a quick bite to eat, then meandering through Bishop's Stortford High Street and finally finishing at The Star Pub in Standon for the most delicious burgers.
Raffle tickets were available purchase at The Goldtop Shop and The Star, with some amazing prizes available and we're proud to say it raised over £800
A huge thank you
To Down Hall Hotel & Spa and The Star in Standon for letting over 150 motorbikes visit your venues, to The Lost Boyz for organising such a fantastic event, and of course to The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride for supporting and raising awareness to such an important cause.
Big thanks to Mutt Motorcycles for lending Goldtop a Fat Sabbath 125cc for the ride. A special thank you goes out to to all the marshals, support vehicles, and everyone else who helped in some way on the day, everything ran smoothly and was organised down to a T.
Finally, a massive thank you to everyone who rode with us, and helped to raise over £20k! We couldn't have done it without you 💪
Here's to many more year's of Bishop's Stortford DGR, it can only get bigger and better from here! 😎🤘
