Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2019 – Glasgow
The Glasgow Ride of the DGR 2019 was a great success – about 200 riders and no rain!
The day before, my friend's daughter Summer came to my house and we had an afternoon of baking cakes for the after ride party.
We assembled at a supermarket carpark in Milngavie.
Motorbike Milly put in an appearance
Then headed off through Bearsden, Maryhill, and Hillhead to our assembly point in Kelvin Way.
From there it was through Partick, Clyde Tunnel, and on to Triumph Glasgow for the after ride party.
There were awards for Best Bike, Most Dapper Gentleman, and Most Dapper Lady – won by Summer!
The riders and families had a great time chatting, looking at the bikes, eating summer's cakes, and listening to a superb young jazz band.
A great day and at time of writing, the Glasgow ride raised about £20,000 and the global amount is US£5.7 million. (£ 4.6 million ). However, there still time to donate!
