Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride 2021

May 23

 

On Sunday, May 23rd, 2021, over 120,000 distinguished gentlefolk in 750 cities worldwide will don their finest attire, ready their engines, and press their tweed before sitting astride their classic and vintage styled motorcycles to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and men’s mental health.

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia by Mark Hawwa. It was inspired by a photo of Mad Men’s Don Draper, perched upon a classic bike and wearing a vintage-inspired suit. Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way to combat the often negative stereotype of men on motorcycles, and to unite niche motorcycle communities.

That first ride in 2012 brought together over 2,500 riders across 64 cities. The success of the event encouraged the founder to consider how it could be used to support a worthy cause.

In 2019, more than 115,000 participants in 648 cities from 101 countries paraded through their cities to raise $6.3M (US) toward prostate cancer research and men’s mental health on behalf of Movember.

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is a celebration of the art of being dapper and classic custom motorcycles.

This is a global event. Watch for organized DGR events in your area.
