5 Top Tips for a Great Gentlemans Ride

Posted on Tuesday 19th |


  1. ATTIRE - Pull out all the stops with the dress code, leave your inhibitions at home along with your Gore Tex. You may feel self conscious on the ride there but once in the pack you will revel in your glorious decadence. Props help too, think; monocles, white silk scarves, pipes and pocket watches.
  2. BIKES – This event was created around the image of classic and custom bikes. Retro is the theme, cafe racers, scramblers, bobbers, and classics. If it looks silly with a suit, it shouldn’t be there. Leave your plastic covered crotch rockets and touring behemoths at home. 
  3. COURTESY – The clue is in the title, this is a ride for Ladies and Gentlemen. Adopt the manners of a bygone era, doff your helmet, bow politely, and leave your inner hooligan in their cage. The pace of the day is sedate and courteous so play along and enjoy the calmer side of biking.
  4. DONATE – Amidst the spectacle of fine tailoring and desirable machinery lies the cause. The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is this year hoping to raise over five million US dollars worldwide for prostate cancer research and the prevention of suicide and depression, a cause that deserves every penny. Whether you make the ride or not please find time to support the cause, visit www.gentlemansride.com for more information and to pledge some cash.
  5. ENJOY – It is a glorious treat of a day, come in high spirits prepared to enjoy yourself and create wonderful memories in the company of like minded Genteel folk and their sublime machines.

Friday Update Feedback

Posted on Saturday 16th |

Good Afternoon . . . Again.

Thank you to everyone for the feedback so far. I have a couple of points I would like to raise.

50% of all London Riders last year donated £0 to the cause. The DGR is a charity event and I would like to think that all our dapper gentlefolk of Team Lind Jack Lilley would have a donation towards our total. 

So for £5 you can be part of the 50% who is raising money for a worthwhile charity.


Everyone is welcome to record footage of the event and if you would like to share it with me I will be able to do a short video with it.

Thanks again Chaps!




What we know so far .....

Posted on Friday 15th |

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Just over a week to go till the DGR. Well done! over £2,000 so far!


If anyone is handy with a Camera we would love someone to take a few photos.

If you can please email me t.daniels@JackLilleys.com


What we know so far - 

We will meet on the forecourt at Ashford at 7.30am and will leave at 8am sharp! 

Please come with a full tank of fuel.

We may possibly be meeting up with our Romford Riders on route so we can all ride in one big group.

We aim to be at the Start point at the Olympic Park around 9-9.30am. This will give us just over an hour to mingle, look at bikes, grab a coffee and a bacon buttie. 

The ride will leave at 11am and will be a tad longer than last year. 

When we arrive at the end point you will be able to make your own way home in your own time.


Please feel free to add anyone to the Team!


If you have any questions please email me t.daniels@jacklilley.com or call 01784 420 421
