On September 24, hundreds of Texas motorcyclists will join thousands of riders worldwide in the 7th annual Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR). They’ll put on their finest bespoke garb, throw a leg over a jaunty café racer, and ride to promote awareness of, and raise funds for, prostate cancer research and suicide prevention. Last year, San Antonio held its first DGR run; there are also DGR rides set up in Austin, Dallas, Houston, El Paso, and other Texas cities. The DGR event was started in 2012, in Sydney, Australia, by organizer Mark Hawwa, who decided a themed ride would be a good way to combat the often negative stereotypes of men on motorcycles. Since then, more than $8 million has been raised for various good causes. Last year, more than 56,000 “smartly-dressed gentlefolk” in some 500 cities and 90 countries took part. Don’t miss out on the dapper fun! To find a ride in your area (or to start one!) and to register, visit gentlemansride.com.
