THE DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN'S RIDE
THIS WEEKEND IN 110 CITIES
It is the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride on Sunday 29th September. This event first started last year in 2012 in 64 cities round the world but it is gaining momentum. Last year it was about having a fun ride, dressing up and bringing a smile to everyone's faces but this year as well as that, it has added a charitable component to its remit and is now a ride to raise the profile of men's health issues and raise money for men's charities as well.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride has grown from 2500 riders in 2012 to an expected 6000 international participants this weekend and is now taking place in 110 cities worldwide on the 29th of September – that's this Sunday.
The money raised through the sale of patches, stickers and fundraising will be divided between charities with the focus on Prostate Cancer Research and awareness.
In general the requirements are to ride a classic bike and dress like a version of Bertie Wooster. Women are invited too according to the website as long as they also 'dress appropriately'.
