Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride

188 local riders took part in the 2nd Annual Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride Sunday. The ride is a fundraiser for Prostrate Cancer and mens mental health raising over $80,000.00 locally and counting. Worldwide over 120,000 distinguished gentlefolk in over 650 cities donned their cravats, tussle their ties, press their tweed, and sat astride their classic and vintage styled motorcycles to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and men’s mental health. The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride 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. Local riders are seen here at one of the stops on the ride at Detour Coffee Shop in Dundas. In this photo Jeff Campagna and Tania LaCaria owners of Steeltown Garage Co. and organizers of the local ride arrive in Dundas.
