The Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride is a world-wide motorcycle fundraiser to raise awareness for prostate cancer and male suicide prevention. However, this dapper ride isn’t just for the guys! Founded in 2012, drawing inspiration from a Mad Men character, the ride was established as a unique motorcycle fundraiser. Riders are encouraged to dress in jacket and vest and ride classic (or classically styled) motorcycles while raising money for The Movember Foundation through their website platform.
The ridership has gone from 2,500 riders across 64 cities in 2012 growing to 115,000 in 648 cities (in 101 countries) this year! Riders across the world raised $6.3M this year alone.
The Columbus 2018 ride was hosted by Motohio.
