If you happened to notice any smartly dressed motorcyclists in London recently, it’s likely
you witnessed the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. Over 30,000 people donned their
Sunday best to take part in this remarkable event which is dedicated to raising funds for
prostate cancer research. Established in Sydney, Australia in 2012, the ride is now a
worldwide event taking place in cities all over the globe. The premise is simple: dust off
your finest tweed suit, and ride your two-wheeled vehicle of choice around the city to raise
awareness for the cause.
The ride happens annually and has raised almost $2.5 million dollars so far. You can
donate and sign up via the Gentleman’s Ride website.
