Smokin’ Motorcycles at Distinghuised Gentleman’s Ride
On Sunday morning, September 25 th 2016, we prepared our rides, dresses dapper and took our best cigars out of the humidor. We were totally ready to ride the Distinghuished Gentleman’s Ride in Rotterdam!
“The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia by Mark Hawwa. It was inspired by a photo of Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit. Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way to combat the often-negative stereotype of men on motorcycles, whilst connecting niche motorcycle communities together.”
“Our focus is on gentlemen who have been dealt a tough hand in life. In particular, we raise funds for research into prostate cancer and mental health programs as part of our mission to support men’s health globally. These funds are invested by our partners The Movember Foundation, the world’s largest men’s health organisation.”
Surprised by all the special bikes and nicely prepared shed builds a tasteful coffee made this sunny morning perfect! Starting at the monumental Van Nelle factory in Rotterdam a ride with about 285 dapper folks ended in the city center with a cool beer.
We are proud to have been part of this awesome event again! See ya next year!
