Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride #DGR
Riding Dapper for a Cause: A Brief History of The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride.
Mijn zoon als motorsportliefhebber, doet mee aan de "Ride", daarom heb ik besloten hem te sponsoren via Pearls & Roses voor dit goede doel gericht op o.a. prostaatkanker en psychische problemen bij mannen. Alle kleine beetjes helpen. Doneren kan nog.
Please support me in raising funds and awareness for the DGR by dressing dapper and riding for prostate cancer and men's mental health. Go to https://www.gentlemansride.com/fundraiser/SandhiSoeparman204381 to donate.
On Sunday September 30th 2018, over 120,000 distinguished gentlefolk in over 650 cities worldwide will don their cravats, tustle their ties, press their tweed, and sit astride their classic and vintage styled motorcycles to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and men's mental health.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia by Mark Hawwa. It was inspired by a photo of Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit. Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way to combat the often-negative stereotype of men on motorcycles, whilst connecting niche motorcycle communities together.
That first ride in 2012 brought together over 2,500 riders across 64 cities. The success of the event encouraged the founder to consider how it could be used to support a worthy cause.
