On Sun­day Septem­ber 27, 2015, more than 30,000 smartly-dressed gen­tle­folk in over 400 cities will strad­dle the sad­dles of their café rac­ers, bob­bers, scram­blers and other mar­vel­lous cus­tom mo­tor­cy­cles to raise aware­ness and help fund the cure for prostate can­cer.

In grand style, dap­per gents and el­e­gant ladies shall ride their steeds spread­ing mer­ri­ment and joy through­out their com­mu­ni­ties whilst rais­ing aware­ness for men’s health.

‘Tell me more, sir!’ - About The Distin­guished Gen­tle­man’s Ride

The Distin­guished Gen­tle­man’s Ride was founded in 2012 in Syd­ney Aus­tralia, inspired by a photo of Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a clas­sic bike and wear­ing his finest suit. It was de­cided a themed ride would be a great way to com­bat the of­ten-neg­a­tive stereo­type of men on mo­tor­cy­cles, whilst con­nect­ing niche mo­tor­cy­cle com­mu­ni­ties to­gether. That first ride 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. And the rest, as they say, is elo­quently at­tired history.

Once again ‘Tri­umph Mo­tor­cy­cles’ one of the world’s most iconic and ad­mired mo­tor­cy­cle man­u­fac­tur­ers, has lent its sup­port to The Distin­guished Gen­tle­man’s Ride, im­bu­ing its es­teemed her­itage to the event and twist­ing the throt­tle to de­feat prostate can­cer.

Mark Septem­ber 27 in your leather-bound di­ary. Join a ride, do­nate to the cause or just come and cheer along some of your com­mu­nity’s finest Gen­tle­folk as they give prostate can­cer the mighty ‘Heave-Ho’.
