A Massive Thank YOU to you all. Incredible last year I raised a little bit under GBP 2K and this year with a ton of help from all of you, we've raised over GBP 5,000 !! That is just awesome.
It was rainiy on they way to the Brooklands Musuem where the ride was to start.
And as expected I got lost a little, and got soaked and ended up on a busy and wet M25 - not very nice. Fortunately realised my error, and got there in time.
The ride itself was mainly dry which was very lucky and all 280+ riders were grateful for that. Well organised, marshalled etc..
So that it is it for DGR 2019. Thank you again on helping save men's lives.
Well 17 days to go. Am truly grateful to all the generous friends that helped to raise the funds so far. A deep thank you. I am hoping that we get good weather on the DGR ride day. But if not, hey ho !
This year, will only be my 3rd year in raising funds to raise awareness and help prevent early deaths from BOTH prostate cancer and suicide in men.
With early detection and support many can be avoided. So it is absolutely worth trying and getting involved.
This Global Tribe of the DGR of both men and women, is trying to do exactly that with your generous support. Last year I believe the DGR Tribe was over 90,000 riders around the world, raising over USD 6 Million. We want to beat that this year.
So getting dressed up and riding my Bonnie, and even raising funds is the easy part.
This year I will try and post at least one more time with updates. Thank you for reading this and hopefully you can support us in at least raising awarenes about Men's Mental Health and Prostate Cancer.

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.
Well done. Best of luck. A
