Fundraising for a cure against Prostate Cancer and raise Mental Health Awareness

Tuesday 4th Apr 2023

As per World Cancer Research Fund: Prostate Cancer is the 2nd leading cancer death in men. In 2017, on average 58 Canadian men were diagnosed with prostate cancer every day, while 11 men died from prostate cancer every day (source: Canadian Cancer Society).

This statistic is probably similar in many countries around the world (In 2017 about 300,000 men died from prostate cancer worldwide).  However early detection and treatment can reduce that number greatly. 

The Movember Foundation is a leading charity addressing this cause.

That's why I have chosen to participate in the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride and to fundraise for the Movember Foundation.

 Please donate on my page to support the fundraising effort for this cause. Every $10+ counts (and a receipt from the charity will be send for personal or corporate tax deduction purposes).

I got infected with the 'virus' motorcycles early on in my life.  My childhood bedroom's wall were decorated with motorcycle posters.  Unable to officially obtain a Driver's License (as I was too young), I 'borrowed' my father's bike occasionally...

I watched him fixing and re-painting the bike. In Highschool, I got my beginner license and got a 50cc bike. One month later I crashed it- a rooky mistake. My father and I were hiding the fact from my mother. We eventually brought the bike to an overhaul shop to have it fixed. Once repaired we told my mother about the incident (sparing her from an heart attack...). Later I upgraded my license and bike. I started off with a 250cc true classic from 1958 and upgraded to a bigger 350cc Horex Resident from 1956. My father was disappointed that I spent my money on 'unreliable' bikes. However, he rode the bike secretly when I wasn't around, a neighbour said. During those years I attended bike meets, met new friends and was privileged enough to look over some very talented shoulders-building or restoring their vintage bike. My weekend rides to bike meets and races eventually turned into an interest to go further. I rode 500cc to 1000cc bikes in many countries.

I always shared my passion for bikes with my father until 2015, when he passed away on prostate cancer.

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

Tuesday 28th Mar 2023 On Sunday the 21st of May 2023, 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.
