This September 29th my team at RestoCycle and I will host the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride here in Tucson Arizona for the third time. It’s a sizeable undertaking for a small team like ours, with a lot of moving parts, but there are 4 of us now, and we are supported by some great co-hosts and sponsors again, which makes it a lot easier than the first year was, and a lot more fun.
This event is personal and important to me. I have had numerous family and friends struggle with the challenges the DGR is pledged to combat - prostate and testicular cancer, suicide prevention, and men’s mental health and emotional well-being overall. I’ve struggled with some of those things too.
So we’ll do what we can - organize a ride in the spirit of fraternity and friendship, raise a little money and encourage some other folks to do that too. And maybe like that we’ll make a little progress on these things. We grow closer to our adopted community this way too. It’s worth the time and effort.
Thank you, sincerely. Your support means a lot to me, spurs me on, makes me glad I agreed to host this event again, along with the other things we juggle running a small business. We’ll do our best to run a great event and make you proud.
Thanks for hosting this great event!
Ride safe! Have a blast! Love you madly!
Go Nils! Always supporting you in spirit!
What a hero you are for always going the extra mile! Just one more thing I love about you bud.

Go Nils. Go.
Go for it Nils!

Spot on, Nils. Thanks for the work.
Thanks, Nils, to you and the RestoCycle team for all the time and energy you've put in to develop Tucson's DGR into a great event and for spearheading an amazing fundraising effort for 2019. I'll see you for the 2020 DGR and will recruit my cycling buddies to join us next year!
Thanks for making the ride Nils. I lost my husband to prostate cancer.
Good luck Nils!
Nice work Nils!
Riding with Jeff Rayner again - See you the 29th. Keep up the good work.
