Montreal Times - - Movember -

Gentle­man­ - On Sun­day, Septem­ber 24th 2017, tens of thou­sands of dis­tin­guished gen­tle­folk in hun­dreds of cities world­wide will don their cra­vats, tweak their mous­taches, press their tweed and sit astride their clas­sic and vin­tage styled mo­tor­cy­cles to raise funds and aware­ness for men’s health, specif­i­cally prostate can­cer re­search and sui­cide pre­ven­tion.

Ride Start and Fin­ish was in Ver­dun where the So­ciété de Développe­ment Com­mer­cial de Ver­dun in­vested them­selves in the project. Con­se­quently, a por­tion of a street was closed be­tween 8am and noon where rid­ers were meet. The start of the ride oc­cured at noon and and re­turned at 2pm. Upon their re­turn, they gath­ered be­hind the Notre-Dame-des-Sept-Douleurs church on Welling­ton be­tween Galt and De l'Église streets (Metro De l'Église) as this was a closed park for the bikes but where pub­lic passerby came to ad­mire the mo­tor­cy­cles and talk with their rid­ers. Mo­tor­cy­cle re­lated mer­chants, mu­sic, food and bev­er­ages were present on­site. There was also a shoeshine and Bar­ber chair on site to clean up those mous­taches.
