3 weeks to go!!........

Posted on Wednesday 11th

Hola hello,

 
Another week has passed us by and we are getting closer to the ride. Really forward to the day now.
 
This year has been quite a build up to the event, with some very sad news of people that I actually know taking their own lives. It's one thing reading about somebody that you don’t know but when it is so much closer to home, It has really made me sit back and think.
 
The statistics that I read this week was that over 13 men per day, on average took their own lives in the Uk in 2018. Over 4,700 men, The Uk alone….How is this possible, that you arrive at the conclusion that it is the only way out. So so sad situation to find yourself in.
 
It makes me fell more passionate about this event and the reason / projects behind it.
 
Any way, sorry about that but had to get it off of my chest.
 
The update….
 
Spent a day in Palma with my boys yesterday, that was an experience!!
 
One wants to buy everything that he sees / touches, the other one won’t even buy what he needs…
 
So George has now decide on his outfit for this years ride…..
 
 
I think the fact that he has started watching peaky blinders may have slightly influenced this year’s outfit….
 
 
 
 
Unfortunately, you will have to wait for my photo has this is as far as I have got…….
 
And it all may change within the next two weeks…..

The next thing will be to decide on which bikes we do the ride on????

Maybe we should have a vote……...
 

I'm back.....

Posted on Monday 2nd

Hi everybody, 

We are all finally back from our summer breaks and holidays.

So now back to work and organising for this years ride. This weeks job to do is to sort out the outfit for this years ride.

George is getting excited about joining in the fun this year as am I....will keep you all up to date with progress on the outifts as they come together.....

 

 

 

Next generation....

Posted on Thursday 1st

congratulations are due to my son George, who this week has passed his 125cc motorbike test. So now two generations of Aplins will be taking part in this year’s DGR.

It feels very strange that my little boy will be riding next to me on the 29thof September.

This year the route is a little different, but still aroumd Palma and looks to be good fun.

He actually stopped on it long enough for somebody to take the picture!!! 🤣😂

And so it begins.......

Posted on Monday 29th

Well, the wait is finally over. The start of the DGR 2019 ride is under way. after last years experience, I am really looking forward to this years event. With a new bike addeed to the collection, it makes the choice a little harder as to which bike will apear this year. So be prepared for the onslaught of photos etc and I look forward to ypour support and donations along the way.

 

speak soon x x x

Join me on the Ride for Men's Health in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

Posted on Monday 29th

On Sunday the 29th of September, I will don my finest attire with my fellow men and women across the globe to join the fight with The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride to raise awareness for prostate cancer and men's mental health. But before I press my tweed and polish my boots, I need you to donate what you can for this meaningful cause and help me reach my goal.

For your uncles, your brothers, your fathers and friends. Donate what you can, for their lives need not end.

I'm riding with Pollensa Property Management
