The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride 2019
On Sunday Sept. 29, I participated in the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride where, worldwide, there were over 100,000 riders who raised upwards of $6m for prostate cancer research. The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride unites classic and vintage style motorcycle riders all over the world to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health. Founded in Sydney, Australia by Mark Hawwa, it was inspired by a photo of TV Show Mad Men’s, Don Draper astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit. Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way of connecting niche motorcycle enthusiasts and communities while raising funds to support the men in our lives.
It is an incredible cause, and it was great to see all the men and women, and supportive families, participate in the ride/fundraiser. We rode 30 miles through three New York Boroughs and, with support and escort services of NYPD’S FINEST motorcycle officers (THANK YOU NYPD), we went through about a hundred red lights, and stopped traffic on Central Park South for about 20 minutes for a phot0-opp. Let’s kick prostate cancer in the ass and, If you’re so inclined, you may contribute to prostate cancer research here. Ride safely, ATGATT. Cheers! #DGRNYC2019 #DGRNYC
