Every year, co-ordinated for the same day, there is an international event in hundreds of cities around the world. The aim is to raise awareness & funds for prostate cancer research & mens mental health. It is called the Distinguished Gentlemans Ride & raises millions every year. You may well have heard of it, as a motorcycle ride of style, where the riders of classic & custom motorcycles dress in tweed & cravats & ride through the cities. This year's ride is 24th September. I believe that some of the funds raised will find their way to Prostate Cancer UK, via the Movember Foundation Partnership.
As a local ride host I am in the position of responsibility of organising not only the ride but also the other logistics such as local publicity, marshalling, catering & refreshments. Its not something that can be done by just one man, it needs a team effort. Often support is needed just on the day of the event. So if you would like to support your local ride, whether you are a bike rider or not, then seek out the local ride host & offer or ask how you can help. The most useful way to direct contact is on facebook social media.
Here is a link to the DGR website which will go live at the end of July for fund-raising registration:
