More than 30,000 dapperly dressed men in 79 countries are expected to take part in this weekend’s Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, raising hundreds-of-thousands-of-pounds for Prostate Cancer UK.
Mixing Don Draper’s style with the world of classic motorcycles, this year’s Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride will once again see thousands of well-tailored men driving courteously through the streets of more than 400 cities around the globe – all helping to raise awareness and money for prostate cancer.
From Bolivia to South Korea and a host of UK cities nearer home, over 30,000 two-wheeled enthusiasts will be organising rides and securing sponsorship in the fourth event of its kind. Prostate Cancer UK is the sole European beneficiary of the international fundraiser, sponsored by Triumph, which last year donated more than £207,000 to us.
James Beeby, Deputy Director of Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, said: “We are really excited to be part of the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride for a second year, and looking forward to seeing the riders donning their tweed for Prostate Cancer UK.
“The ride is a brilliant demonstration of what we call Men United, people coming together to do something fun and help beat prostate cancer. We thank everyone at the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride for all their support in raising funds and awareness.”
