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.
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.
HOW ARE TRIUMPH INVOLVED?
Aside from supporting the ride through engaging with the global community of Triumph modern classic fans and riders, we are donating four brand new motorcycles from its Modern Classic rangeto be gifted to the three highest fundraisers worldwide and to the winner of the Gentlefolk Competition. One of these four bikes will be a unique piece custom-Thruxton RS that will celebrate the 10th-Year anniversary of the initiative.
