Why we rideTuesday 9th May 2023
Riding a motorcycle can have numerous mental health benefits beyond the sheer joy and excitement of being on the open road. For one, it can be a form of mindfulness meditation, allowing riders to focus solely on the present moment and clear their minds of other worries and distractions.
Additionally, riding a motorcycle can release endorphins and other "feel good" chemicals in the brain, leading to euphoria and pleasure. In many ways, riding can be a form of therapy or self-care, providing riders with a sense of freedom, independence, and control over their lives.
Moreover, participating in the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride can be a way for riders to foster a sense of community and belonging, which is essential for maintaining good mental health. By connecting with other riders and supporters, participants can feel a sense of camaraderie and support that can help them cope with the challenges of everyday life.
