‘I say! What a spiffing smoking jacket. Who is your tailor, sir?’
Sadly, sentences like these are not often uttered anymore. For one day a year, however, thousands of Distinguished Gentleman (and genteel ladyfolk) in hundreds of cities worldwide press their cravats, starch their tweed and sit astride their classic-styled motorcycles to raise funds for prostate cancer research and awareness. It’s a day all about spreading merriment while raising awareness of a really important issue.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is a celebration of the art of being dapper and the style of classic custom motorcycles. What does that mean, you ask?
Think: Monocles, jaunty trimmed moustaches, silk vests, crisp shirts and tailored suits.
Ride: Café Racers, Bobbers, Classics, Flat Trackers, Scramblers and quirky, undefinable two-wheeled machines.
Do: Bring your finest manners, neatest beards and a sense of fun and adventure.
Pay: Nothing to ride (entry is free); but please consider helping our charities by getting your friends and family to sponsor your involvement (see FAQs for how this works). Or buy a patch or a sticker. Every little bit helps.
