Riders, start your engines. Registrations for the tenth edition of The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride are now open.

On May 23rd, the world will become abuzz with thousands of finely dressed gentlefolk upon their classic and vintage motorcycles, riding together in support of men’s health.

By the numbers, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride has put rubber to the road in 107 countries, brought together 340,000 riders since 2012 and raised over USD $27 million for men’s health. A massive achievement.

This year, we’re not only celebrating a decade of riding dapper, but also six years of partnership between Movember and The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride.

With the funds raised by this incredible community, Movember are able to invest in initiatives aimed at improving the mental health and wellbeing of men, like the Veterans and First Responders program. This program will trial new ideas to support firefighters, paramedics, police officers and military veterans who are all disproportionately affected by poor mental health. Similarly, The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride Social Connections Challenge will road-test new ideas that bring motorcycle riders together and improve their social connections which, in turn, enables them to enjoy healthier, happier and longer lives.

This year’s ride will be taking place in one of three different formats, depending on the physical distancing rules in your city. Be sure to look out for the format and other info about your local ride event when you sign up on The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride website.

Get involved and ride dapper for a cause on Sunday 23 May. Register now.
