Almost time

Monday 9th

I am sat here watching the Miami F1 Gp and praying we get weather like today.

It is so exciting to be involved in such a large global fundraiser and I cannot wait for the big day which is close. infact, this time in two weeks, I will be sat here having completed my first DGR ride.

I am so grateful to all of those that are supporting these causes that are close to my heart and am concious that every penny raised could safe a life.

The DGR and More

Tuesday 3rd

Many of my friends know I am a freemason. This is not the secret and nefarious organsiation most people think it is from hearsay. it is actually one of the largest forms of charitable giving in the UK. We are filled with likeminded people that all tend do to things for charity anyway. This is why I am part of the DGR - because trying to make a change is part of my DNA.

I have recently joined a masonic riders group called the Widows Sons. As such we ride and raise money for assorted charities. I will be wearing my waistcoat during the ride and hope that I might atract many more like minded people to this gernerous organisation.

Almost at the target

Friday 22nd

I am so grateful to all the generous donations that have been given so far. 4 more weeks and two days of fundraising to go and then it is the big ride. pop along and day hello at Poole Quay or Bournemouth Pier approach on the day

Thankyou all

Wednesday 6th

Just a quick post to say thanks to all of those people that have donated so far. I am tweaking the bike more and more to make it more personal to me. This week I have removed the heat shields that made the exhausts look very heavy on one side of the bike. I have removed the belt covers and moved the foot controls forwards. This means the bike is looking far more balanced in aesthetics and is coming together nicely.

As far as the ride is concerned - I have an old tweed waistcoat that still fits post covid (woohoo) and am looking at my wardrobe so I can fully engage in the theme of the ride. 

Still keeping my fingers crossed for good weather this year.

Tuesday 29th

This is my first time on the DGR and it has been a goal for me for quite some time. It has been a bumpy ride getting here but I am looking forwards to doing something so fun whilst helping raise money for many important causes. Fingers crossed for a dry day ;)

Join our team as we ride for The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride!

Tuesday 29th On Sunday the 22nd May 2022, we are teaming up to ride in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride with fellow men and women across the globe to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and men's mental health on behalf of Movember. Men die on average 6 years earlier than women and for largely preventable reasons. The number of men that are suffering is growing, and we need to do something about that. So, before we press our tweed and polish our boots, we are asking you to join us in raising funds and awareness for these causes by donating what you can for this meaningful cause and to help the men we love, live happier and healthier lives.
