Distinguished Gentleman's Ride
Riding for prostate cancer
On Sunday 27th September, more than 30,000 smartly dressed gentlefolk in over 400 cities across the world took part in the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride to raise money for prostate cancer.
Gavin Edge and Keri MacDonald of Perth Branch recently put on their suit and tie to ride across the city.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in 2012 in Sydney, inspired by a photo of Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike while wearing his finest suit. From this, the idea to bring together niche motorcycle communities was created to support a worthy cause.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is a celebration of the art of being dapper and the style of classic custom motorcycles.
To date, $2,319,134 (USD) has been raised worldwide with over 37,000 registered riders taking place in this year’s ride.
Kerri participates in the ride every year, and this year (finally) took out the Slow Race award which is awarded to the last participant to cross the finish line while balancing your motorcycle without putting their foot down.
Congratulations to both Gavin and Keri for participating in this event for such a great cause!
