We’re excited to continue our partnership for many years to come, and celebrate this milestone with some truly remarkable prizes in 2023.”

For the 2023 ride, in addition to returning partners ELF Lubricants and Hedon Helmets, the DGR is also excited to announce a new partnership with QuadLock, a leading manufacturer of smartphone mounting solutions. The prizing rewarding fundraisers of DGR 2023 from these partners will form the most impressive range of products and experiences on offer in any fundraising event.

About The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride unites classic and vintage style motorcycle riders all over the world to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health. The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia in 2012 by

Mark Hawwa. After inspiration from a photograph featuring classic suits and vintage motorcycles, Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way to combat the often-negative stereotype of motorcyclists and connect the global motorcycling community and to raise funds for a cause important to every rider.
