Gentle­men on the road

The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - Weekend - Pho­tos: Konyi Cal­isto

The res­i­dents of Taung­gyi wit­nessed a strange pa­rade last week­end. A ba alion of bik­ers ral­lied in front of a lo­cal restau­rant, held a mini-con­fer­ence be­fore head­ing to Nyaung Shwe Town, a two-hour ride down south. But, they were not your usual bik­ers. They were gentle­men. The “Dis­tin­guished Gentle­men Ride 2017” a racted 200 pa ic­i­pants from all ac­cords Myan­mar. The pack in­cluded a French, a Brit, a Thai and a Filipino. The gentle­men and their brim­ming mous­taches were rid­ing to raise some money for “Movem­bre”, an an­nual event in­volv­ing the grow­ing of mous­taches dur­ing the month of Novem­ber to raise aware­ness of men’s health is­sues, such as prostate can­cer. The ride helped raise around USD 2,000.
