Gentlemen, start your engines, and get ready for a well-dressed ride in Phuket

This Sunday, September 25, the streets of Phuket will be abuzz with finely dressed gentlefolk upon their classic and vintage style motorcycles, united in their support of men’s health.

Friday 23 September 2016, 06:04PM


The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is a worldwide motorcycling charity event that shines a light upon the bikes, fashion and ideals of a bygone era, all for a good cause.


The event will start at Chillva market at 2:30pm this Sunday, where snappily dressed participants will mount their vintage and custom motorcycles and head north for a leisurely ride to Nai Yang Beach. After a pause for refreshments, food and photos at the beach, the riders will head back to Chillva Market to complete their loop.


The event is open to bikes of all kinds including café racers, bobbers, classics, retro bikes, flat trackers, scramblers – the only requirement is that riders wear gentlemanly and ladylike attire for the event.


The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in 2012 by Mark Hawwa in Sydney, Australia, after being inspired by a photo of TV show Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike, wearing his finest suit.

Bollywood

It was 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. That first ride brought together over 2,500 riders across 64 cities, with the success of the event encouraging Mark to consider how it could be used to support a worthy cause. The rest, as they say, is eloquently attired history.


This year, 50,000 riders in over 500 cities across 90 countries will take part in their local event. The events fundraising goal is US$5 million, which will be invested in both local and global prostate cancer research and suicide prevention programmes by our official charity partner, the Movember Foundation.


Triumph Motorcycles, the iconic British motorcycle manufacturer offers its continuing support in making sure The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride’s wheels keep spinning. The most outstanding fundraisers globally will be awarded with a modern classic motorcycle as a thank you for their support.
