Ride Solo Together - Triumph and The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

Triumph Motorcycles and the Movember Foundation have joined forces with the 2020 Distinguished Gentleman's Ride on 27th September for this year's unique event.
With the aim of supporting and fundraising for men's health with this year's ride, and its commitment to men's mental health, the DGR has never been more relevant in light of the momentous challenges the world is facing.

On this day, thousands of gentlefolks worldwide are invited to wear their best dapper and to ride solo to fundraise in support of the research against prostatic cancer and mental health support.
The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride (DGR) 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 the global motorcycling community and to raise funds for a cause important to every rider.
The event has been attracting an increasing amount of riders year after year since 2012 and, in 2019, new fundraising and attendance records were set: $6m raised for the cause, with more than 116,000 riders participating across 104 countries.
In order to maintain the DGR's mission, while adapting to this challenging period, the 2020 DGR will be for the first time a solo event, in which participants will embrace the spirit and mood of the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride by 'Riding Solo Together' - riding alone or with their pillion rider from the same household. 
This new format will enable riders to comply with the different social distancing regulations in place in each country, while sharing their passion for motorcycles, contributing to the Movember cause and spreading awareness through social media.
Triumph is proud to once again partner with The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride to support this incredible event and to encourage every Triumph fan to support the DGR and to dress dapper, ride and donate while observing clear social distancing regulations that each country has in place.
In addition, Triumph is donating four brand new motorcycles from its Modern Classic range to be gifted to the three highest fundraisers worldwide and to the winner of the Gentlefolk Competition.
