On Sunday the 19th of May 2024, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) is coming to a city near you. The world’s largest charity event for classic and vintage motorcycle enthusiasts will return to raise funds for men’s health in style. This year, the DGR is calling on riders from across the globe to join forces for a monumental push towards hosting 1000 rides simultaneously, in line with its “Side by Side, Worldwide” campaign. The campaign looks to highlight the thousands of riders who ride together all around the world for a unified cause.

As the world comes together to address the crucial issue of men’s health, the 2024 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride aims to create a powerful, united front by encouraging riders from different corners of the world to participate side by side on the same day. The “Side by Side, Worldwide” theme embodies the spirit of unity, emphasizing the global impact that can be achieved when individuals unite for a common cause.

“In 2024, we have set ourselves the goal of reaching 1000 cities around the world,” says Founder and Director of The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, Mark Hawwa. “We have ridden with each other on the same day all around the world since 2012. Our community is one that comes together, despite borders and oceans, riding side by side to raise increasingly critical funds and awareness for men’s mental health and prostate cancer. DGR 2024 is the year that we celebrate our fellow gentlefolk around the world that we ride alongside, united by a passion, and driven by the cause.”

Partners Triumph Motorcycles return to continue their global support of the charity motorcycling event with collaborative merchandise featuring both the DGR and Triumph brands, as well as rewarding the event’s highest fundraisers with brand new modern classic motorcycles. Reserved for the highest fundraiser of 2024 will be a celebration of one of the most iconic Triumph models ever made, The Thruxton 1200 Final Edition.

Paul Stroud, Chief Commercial Officer, Triumph Motorcycles added: “We share the DGR’s ambitious goal for 2024; to bring even more riders together, in more places around the globe, to raise even more money for men’s mental health and prostate cancer. We are working side by side with the DGR and our growing global dealer network to help achieve 1000 Rides. This year, we will be rewarding the highest fundraiser with an iconic motorcycle; the Thruxton 1200 Final Edition, as well as donating a number of prizes to Team Triumph fundraisers. In this way, we hope to unite and inspire Triumph riders across the world on 19 May to join Team Triumph, dress dapper, raise money and enjoy the ride.”

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. The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride has raised over US$45M for prostate cancer research and men’s health since 2012.
