The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride/Drive unites classic and vintage style motorcycle riders and classic cars all over the world 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. It was inspired by a photo of TV Show Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit. Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way of connecting niche motorcycle enthusiasts and communities while raising funds to support the men in our lives.
The 2020 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is going forward!
On Sunday the 27th of September, we ride!
The 2020 ride will be a solo event to comply with all local social distancing restrictions and will take an adjusted format to connect every rider to the cause from around the world no matter their social distancing regulations. We are maintaining a consistent global message that there will be no mass-participation event, but just because we’re not riding in groups doesn’t mean we’re not dressing dapper and riding! 2020 is our year to prove how connected and caring we are.
We will be riding on the same day and for the same cause, but it will be solo. Socially distanced, but globally connected.
This is our year to Ride/Drive Solo, Together.
