Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2019
September 29, 2019 - September 29, 2019
Address: 3208 Queen Anne Ave N Seattle, Washington 98109
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia in 2012. The ride was inspired by a photo of Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit. It is a celebration of the art of being dapper and classic custom motorcycles. Founder Mark Hawwa 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. The funding of men's mental health programs is a Distinguished Gentleman's Ride focus, in addition to prostate cancer research through their new official charity partner The Movember Foundation and the support of their title sponsors Triumph Motorcycles and Zenith Watches.
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.
