2021-05-23 Distinguished Gentlemans Ride – Fundraiser
Fundraiser for Prostate Cancer – Details TBA
There have been two Distinguished Gentleman’s Rides listed in our area this year.
One in Albury, but nothing posted about route,starting place, finishing place etc.
The other has a Myrtletford start point, but no route posted.
I am assuming that it will be the same as past years as it will finish at
the Ovens Hotel.
In past rides we have met the Myrtlrford group at the Dederang Cafe and completed the ride via Bright Gap with them.
For those intending to complete this ride, the departure time will be 9.30 at our usual ride start point opposite BP in Wodonga Place.
Could I ask that one of the club members attending please take down a roll call as I am unavailable.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in 2012 by Mark Hawwa in Sydney, Australia, after being inspired by a photo of Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike, wearing his finest suit.
It was decided a themed ride would be a great way to combat the often-negative stereotype of men on motorcycles, whilst connecting niche motorcycle communities together.
That first ride brought together over 2,500 riders across 64 cities, with the success of the event encouraging Mark to consider how it could be used to support a worthy cause. The rest, as they say, is eloquently attired history.
