DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN’S RIDE
Registration is now open
WHAT IS THE DGR?
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride creates themed rideouts across the Globe to raise awareness and funds for male charitable causes. Founder Mark Hawwa hit upon the inspiration for the 'dressing dapper' theme in 2012, when he saw a photo of Don Draper from TV show Mad Men sitting on a classic bike whilst wearing a suit. Triumph decided that the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride captures everything to be celebrated about motorcycling, and has supported the event for a number of years, seeing DGR grow to a global event in the process.
TRIUMPH & GIBSON
Triumph Motorcycles & Gibson create a one-of-a-kind custom guitar and motorcycle for The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. Together, these will be offered as the highest fundraiser reward for the 2022 ride.
WHERE DOES IT TAKE PLACE?
Since its inception The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride has spread to more countries, cities and towns each year. In 2021, more than 65,000 distinguished gentlefolk took to their classic and vintage motorcycles and Rode Solo Together in over 2000 locations across the globe.
