Now this really is something quite different; ‘The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride’ which is a classic and retro bike event originally set up in 2012. I’m the host of the Derbyshire DGR and my ride is just one of hundreds of rides across the world all on the same date each September. We dress up in tweed jackets, brogues and handlebar moustaches so it’s something completely different to the stereo-typical biker. The ride is in aid of prostate cancer and Men’s Mental Health, specifically male suicide prevention and so far my Derbyshire rides have raised almost £20,000 in the last three years. Globally all the rides put together have raised 4.8m for 2017 alone.
Here is a photo of us at the end of this year’s ride after raising over £12,000 this year!
