What started out as a simple desire to raise awareness for prostate cancer has now become a global event taking place once a year in over 258 rides across 220 cities. The legendary Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride took place again this year on a beautiful Sunday on September 28th, with over 20,000 riders across the globe in their dapper best raising over $1 million for prostate cancer research.
Didn’t get to take part this year? Here’s a selected compilation of some stellar footage of this year’s ride, kickstarting with a b-side video from our very own shores, all the way to a glimpse at what the riders in New York were up to.
Remember to grab a suit and your favourite cafe racer (or bobber, scrambler, or scooter) and join the DGR ride next year to do some good, while looking really good.
