In 2012 a group of friends decided to channel the style of a bygone era, and created The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, one of the fastest growing fundraising events in Australia and now across the globe. It’s all about the scramblers, café racers, classic styled bikes and bobbers, and the dapper chaps who own them. What’s important for the Distinguished Gentlemen is having a great ride and raising awareness and as much money as possible to combat prostate cancer, a disease that kills one gentlemen every hour somewhere in the world.
"Our first focus was on fun but we also wanted to break the stereotypes a lot of society associates with men on bikes, whilst also raising funds for men’s health issues. We believe fundraising and wanting to help one another comes from the heart, so we never force a rider to raise funds." explains founder Mark Hawwa.
A staggering 26,774 riders registered in 347 cities across 73 countries this year, held annually on the last weekend in September.
