Over 125,000 classic and vintage styled motorcyclists around the world suited up in their smartest attire and united in the annual The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, with the aim of raising $7 Million (USD) for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health initiatives on behalf of official charity partner, the Movember Foundation.
The Fife ride took place last weekend and raised over £6k raised for prostate cancer research and for Mens Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.
Falkland Palace and Gardens hosted a pre-ride soirée before the ride headed to Anstruther Lifeboat station and finished up in St Andrews.
Founded in 2012 by Mark Hawwa in Sydney, Australia, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride has raised over $18.5M USD for men’s health, with a goal of raising a further $7M USD to the cause in 2019. With over 1 million men losing their lives annually to suicide and prostate cancer, this event is calling on the global classic and vintage style motorcycling community to stop men dying too young.
This year, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride paraded through the hearts of over 700 cities & regions across 110 countries on Sunday the 29th of September, 2019.
