The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride looks to connect all riders around the world who own and ride classic and custom style motorcycles and scooters, to dress dapper and unite in a parade through the heart of their city to raise funds and awareness for men’s health.

Each ride is organised by volunteer ride hosts, and each city is limited to one ride. To find out if there’s a ride in your city, or a city near you, visit our rides page.

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is a themed event, focusing on the classic style of both participants and their machines. Dress dapper and celebrate in style with your fellow gentlefolk!

DGR is a classic themed event, so modern-designed motorcycles, sports motorcycles, dirt/adventure motorcycles and cruiser motorcycles that do not fit within the classic style are not eligible to participate with. If you don’t have a suitable vehicle but are passionate about our event, you can still sponsor a participant or donate to the event, which will contribute towards our charitable goals and benefit all men around the world.
