DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN’S RIDE
WHAT IS THE DGR?
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride creates themed rideouts across the Globe to raise awareness and funds for male charitable causes. Founder Mark Hawwa hit upon the inspiration for the 'dressing dapper' theme in 2012, when he saw a photo of Don Draper from TV show Mad Men sitting on a classic bike whilst wearing a suit. Triumph decided that the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride captures everything to be celebrated about motorcycling, and has supported the event for a number of years, seeing DGR grow to a global event in the process.
WHERE DOES IT TAKE PLACE?
Since its inception The Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride has spread to more countries, cities and towns each year. In 2021, more than 65,000 distinguished gentlefolk took to their classic and vintage motorcycles and Rode Solo Together in over 2000 locations across the globe.
How are Triumph involved?
Aside from supporting the ride through engaging with the global community of Triumph modern classic fans and riders, we are 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.
JOINING THE TRIUMPH TEAM
This year we will once again have an official Triumph riding team. The 'Triumph DGR Riding Group' is for any Triumph modern classic rider to enter and the top five fundraisers in each of these teams will win a high-value clothing prize from Triumph.

2. In the main 'About DGR' drop down menu riders can select 'featured teams' which takes them to a section on the leading teams with a link to join.
