The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride runs rides around the globe to raise awareness of charity and raise funds for men's health. The DGR unites motorcyclists from all over the world who travel in classic and vintage style to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men's mental health.
The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia by Mark Hawwa. The ride was inspired by a photo of Don Draper from the series Mad Men, who sits on a classic motorcycle with his best suit. Mark thought that a theme ride would be a good way to combat the often negative stereotype of men on motorcycles and connect niche motorcycle groups in the process.
