ON SEPTEMBER 27 thousands of motorcyclists will don their most dapper riding gear to take part in the landmark 10th Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, but with a significant difference.
Triumph and the Movember Foundation will join forces for this year’s event.
On DGR day, thousands of gentlefolk worldwide are invited to ‘ride solo’ to fundraise in support of the research against prostate cancer and for mental health support.
Dubbed Ride Solo Together, the 2020 DGR will be for the first time a solo event, in which participants will embrace the spirit and mood of the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride by riding alone or with a passenger from the same household.
This new format will enable riders to comply with the different social distancing regulations in place in each country, while sharing their passion for motorcycles, and still contribute to the Movember cause and spread awareness through social media.
The event has been attracting an increasing amount of riders year after year since 2012, and in 2019, new fundraising and attendance records were set.
$6M was raised for the cause with more than 116,000 riders participating across 104 countries.
Triumph is donating four brand new motorcycles from its Modern Classic range to be gifted to the three highest fundraisers worldwide and to the winner of the Gentlefolk Competition.
If you want to put on your best tweed, dress dapper, wax your moustache, and take part in the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride this year, you can get more information or sign up by visiting the DGR website atgentlemansride.com
