Mental Well-Being for Motorcyclists

The world is a different place and connecting with friends & family is more important than ever.

We have funded key programs in 2020 that are aimed at both improving the mental well-being of men in motorcycling and also the wider community.

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride Social Connections Challenge is a new initiative that will leverage funds raised by The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride community, creating a funding pool of AUD $1.15 million, to find ideas that can improve the social connectedness, life satisfaction and mental wellbeing of motorcycle riders.
