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.

From the Triumph website: We are delighted to confirm that once again Triumph are the lead sponsor of The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride in its 10th-Year Anniversary, marking our 8th year of helping raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health.

Since its inception The Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride has spread to more countries, cities and towns each year. In 2020, more than 50,000 distinguished gentlefolk took to their classic and vintage motorcycles and rode solo in over 2000 locations across the globe. This year it will look a little different as we ‘Ride Solo Together’, socially distanced but globally connected. Get on your bike either on your own or with a pillion, and ride through the heart of your city for men’s health. Due to the ever-changing level of restrictions in place in each city and country, the format of The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride for 2021 will vary depending on the location in which each ride will take place. It will contain a mixture of COVID-safe, Route Only, or Ride Solo events. For information on how rides near you will be conducted, visit the DGR Website.
