How spiff­ing! Dap­per riders to roar by

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Crackdown As tour Centre -

Dap­per mo­tor­cy­clists will ride to­gether through Ash­ford this week­end in sup­port of prostate can­cer char­i­ties.

The Distin­guished Gen­tle­man’s Ride (DGR) is a global move­ment, spon­sored by Tri­umph Mo­tor­cy­cles, which en­cour­ages bik­ers to don their Sun­day best and travel in con­vey to one lo­ca­tion.

Founded in 2012 in Aus­tralia, the event has grown rapidly in pop­u­lar­ity as it aims to shake off the some­what neg­a­tive rep­u­ta­tion of biker meets, while rais­ing money for an im­por­tant cause.

This year, 30,000 riders from 400 cities across the world are ex­pected to take part.

There are three start­ing points for the Kent ride, with the Ash­ford team de­part­ing from La­guna Tri­umph, in Ash­ford Road, Kingsnorth, at 10.30am.

Other riders will leave from Maid­stone and the Chatham Dock­side, be­fore all meet­ing to­gether at The White Horse pub in Bearsted, near Maid­stone.

Rick Caw­ley, UK gen­eral man­ager at Tri­umph, said: “Kent’s ride will be an ex­cel­lent day – bring­ing to­gether loads of riders from across the re­gion for what’s sure to be a mem­o­rable oc­ca­sion.

“If last year’s out­fits are any­thing to go by, it will cer­tainly be a spec­ta­cle for any­one who hap­pens to pass, so keep your eyes out, although they’ll be hard to miss.”

“In ad­di­tion to be­ing a fun and in­clu­sive event, the DGR raises valu­able funds to fight prostate can­cer.”
