Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2014
On September 28, 2014, in over 250 cities across the world, motorcyclists will gather to raise awareness and funds to support the fight against Prostate Cancer.
These ‘distinguished gentlemen’ will be riding their scramblers, café racers, classic styled bikes and bobbers and will be taking to the streets in their best tweed, polished boots and trimmed beards.
The concept of the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride began with a picture of Don Draper from television’s Mad Men. This picture inspired the café racer aficionado Mark Hawwa to thinking about a Suit Ride in Perth. The idea quickly took off, starting in just a one city and then quickly growing into the global event we know today.
Triumph, having seen the incredible work the ride is doing for Prostate Cancer awareness, have become proud supporters in 2014 and are committed to spreading the word far and wide to encourage more rides, more riders and more funds raised to support this charity event.
With the 2013 event raising $277,000 (AUS), running in 145 cities in 38 countries, Triumph's support should provide the springboard and infrastructure to deliver the event on an ever growing worldwide basis.
