The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride (DGR)

Getting Dapper - The 2024 Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

Registrations are now open for The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride (DGR), being staged simultaneously, worldwide, on Sunday 19th May, 2024.

The world's largest charity event for classic and vintage motorcycle enthusiasts will be supported by Triumph Motorcycles for the 11th year, helping to raise awareness and funds for men's mental health and prostate cancer research.

This year, the DGR is calling on riders from across the globe to join forces for a monumental push towards hosting 1,000 rides, in line with its "Side by Side, Worldwide" campaign. To help reach this goal, Triumph is working with its global dealer network to host, and participate in, even more rides this year.

To inspire all riders to raise as much money for Movember's men's mental health and prostate cancer initiatives as possible, Triumph will reward the top fundraiser with an iconic Thruxton Final Edition; a rare opportunity to own a piece of motorcycling history. Set to become a desirable collectors' item, it will come with a certificate of authenticity featuring the bike's unique VIN number, signed by members of the Thruxton 1200 design team and Triumph CEO Nick Bloor and a unique Final Edition engine badge.

A new clothing range featuring both the DGR and Triumph brands has been launched to support this year's ride, and 2024 sees the launch of Team Triumph, a dedicated riders' group, so all participants have the chance to join Triumph's global community while raising money to promote men's health. Triumph X DGR clothing prizes are available for the top five fundraisers in the group.

The ever-dapper Mark Hawwa, founder and Director of The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride, says: "This year we have set ourselves the goal of reaching 1,000 cities around the world. We have ridden with each other on the same day all around the world since 2012. Our community is one that comes together, despite borders and oceans, riding side by side to raise increasingly critical funds and awareness for men's mental health and prostate cancer. 

"DGR 2024 is the year that we celebrate our fellow gentlefolk around the world that we ride alongside, united by a passion, and driven by the cause." Hedon Helmets, ELF Lubricants and Quad Lock will also be rejoining the classic-inspired charity event, further rewarding the efforts of this year's fundraisers.
