So I was supposed to travel on Sunday the 13th Oct, however, some hiccups required I postponed that....
So I was able to join the The Hague ride yesterday. Abt 100 bike riders were there, braving the weather, we had a bit of rain in the morning, but generally a great day!!
Very glad i could make it, it was meant to happen!
Stay Dapper and see you next year.
On Friday afternoon I got a few more donations in and I MADE MY GOAL!!!
Awesome to have been able to raise so much with your help!!
Thanks very much and if you are reading this and still want to make a donation, this can be done until the 31st October!!
Bd weather is making the ride unsafe to continue. We have been informed by the ride organisers that the ride will be postponed until 13th Oct.
This means however that due to a business trip I won’t be able to join with the ride... I amy attempt a run on Sunday the 6th Oct...
Off course the ride is the excuse to raise money, and that is not going to go away. I am very grateful and humbled bu the nearly 100people who supported me and donated for this cause
Keep riding and safe
No, it is not what you think...
Today I raised more money this year than I did in 2017!!
Awesome and many thanks to all 94 people who have made a donation!! Thank you very much!!!
One more week to go!! nearly at my goal, I hope that a few outstanding promises still wil come in!!
Very gratefull for all the donations sofar, from 5USD to 175USD!! Your are all awesome...
Now hoping the weather will co-operate as it has the last two years!!
Keep on donating and riding!!
Many of you know that this is the third year I participate in fund raising for this organisation.
Today I reached a milestone!! All three years combined you all donated 10,000USD for this cause!!
MANY MANY THANKS
Over the last three years there have been a few people that have contributed every year, always the family but also some local businesses in Wassenaar.
One of those is beach club Bait on the Wassenaarse Slag:
It is one of our favourite places to go to and the hosts Esther and Christian are always very welcoming.
So if you want to go to the beach and have a nice meal go visit them!!
I am half way to my target and still a few weeks to go, hopefully will make it and then some!!
I have now raised more than last year, many many many thanks to all that have contributed.
YOU ARE AWESOME!!!
It is going realy well, still a few promises to "cash in" but that is OK!!!
I'll keep pestering people to make donations, don't mind the rebuttals, or silence... snif,... no not really!!
I'll keep chipping away at it!!
Thanks to all who (whom?) have donated so far, very much appreciated!!
Goal is not close yet, but small steps will get me there too!! Any donation is welcome!! Just for info, I am currently 1st in the Hague, and 103rd world wide!! All due to YOU!!!
(Test) drove the bike to work today, OK the weather is pretty good, all doing fine!
Thanks again for all your donations and support!
Here is a little clip about last year, as shown on Radio West TV
It also features me.... (I am so modest), but the important part is to sponsor!!
Thanks for all who are helping me sofar, hopefully still a few more to come...
So initially I had not thought of participating this year, but earlier this year a colleague I have known since 1985 had mental problems and took the decision not to go on. So this changed my opinion and decided to join in again.
I hope all whom I contact will donate for this research in to men’s health, both mental and prostate cancer research can be helped by donating.
Please do it for me, for yourself and for those that are no longer with us!!
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.
Thanks for honest messaging. I too have lost a colleague who I did not know too well but he was my first supervisor offshore, anyhow, I relate to helping our humane civilisation improve and working together is a good start. I would fail if I stop trying.
Great cause Robert and glad to be associated with someone else like myself doing good work for Cancer Awareness and fund raising.
Veel plezier en rij voorzichtig !
