Great turn out yesterday, with 389 riders registered (it seemed like more) - Great organisation and in the end, great sunny weather........I admit, the picture tells a different story.
270 riders now registered for the event in Köln/Cologne this Sunday and according to the forecast, the weather sunny but overcast.......Cannot wait!
Weather looking good in the week leading up to Sunday the 24th......Fingers crossed it stays that way and carry's on until at least the following Monday.
Climbed up to 252 riders now taking part here in Köln.......Getting exciting
Pleased to have received my Gentlefolk Patch today........Over $200 raised so far, with further donations greatly received - It's all for a good cause.
Due to the number of riders now registered, the route has been changed to accomodate - A decent ride providing the weather holds out.........Hopefully not a traditional "Englische Sommertag" (English Summers Day) as they are known here when it rains in the warmer months.
Would a Union Jack bow tie be acceptable for a German Ride......I think so!
Tweed suit ordered for the event.........Waiting for delivery before deciding on shirt/tie/pocket squre combo!
While looking for a suitable handkerchief and tie for the event, I thought why not create my own???
Hard to know exactly what to wear for my 1st DGR event - As it's heading into Autumn, I'm thinking tweed
Finally managed to register for this years DGR........Hoping the weather on the day will be as good as the one on which I took this photo!
On Sunday the 24th 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.
Thank you for all the donations thus far!
Dear Dave, You will be a magnificent sight! Have a great time for a great cause. Nina xxxx
Wir wünschen Dir einen wunderschönen Tag. Patrizia und Detlef
Hope you have fun and it is for a good cause too. ????
Hope the sun shines brightly!
Good Luck Jannice
Looking very dapper in your tweeds
Daddy....Have fun, love Oli x
