Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2017
As some of you will know, the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride is a world wide motorcycle charity event held each year on 24th September. The idea is for riders to dress up in their finery, follow a route through various cities, and end up at a meeting place. Riders are sponsored and funds raised go towards combatting prostate cancer and men's mental health.
This year I'll be taking part in the Glasgow run on my Bonneville. Last year they had 56,000 participants in 505 cities in 90 countries, and raised US$ 3.6 million. This year they are hoping for even more.
The Glasgow route will be from the Fort Shopping Centre, a 45 minute stop at George Square to show off the bikes, then on to Triumph Glasgow in Hillington where and event has been planned. So if you're in the area, come along to cheer us on! (End of September in Glasgow - bound to be cold and wet!)
It's not just for Gentlemen - Gentleladies are welcome too!
