Founded in Sydney, Australia in 2012, the ‘dress dapper’-themed ride aims to combat the often-negative stereotype of motorcyclists and connect the global motorcycling community by raising funds for a cause important to every rider.
Since its first year, the DGR’s global community has raised over 31 million USD for its charity partner, Movember, and now operates in over 900 cities and 114 countries around the world.
This year’s Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride will take place on Sunday May 22 with pre-registration already open to riders across the world, and official registration and fundraising starting on March 28.
