"It's an event where self-expression flourishes and personalities drive fashion choices"
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride unites vintage style motorcycle riders to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia, by Mark Hawwa. Mark was inspired by the TV Show Mad Men, as Don Draper rode a classic bike in a suit, from there the idea transformed into a themed bike ride. The DGR is a great way of connecting niche motorcycle enthusiasts and communities while raising funds to support the men in our lives.
Since 2012, the ride has raised an impressive $37.5 million, has had over 340,000 riders take part in 121 countries worldwide and shows no signs of slowing down!
Be sure to take part in your closest ride to help raise awareness and funds, for such an important cause.
