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 Gentleman’s Ride has spread to more countries, cities and towns each year. On May 22nd 2022, 93,456 riders in 802 cities, spread across 104 countries, dressed dapper and rode their classic motorcycles.
