Riding for Men’s Health, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride

Dapper motorcycle riders
On Sunday the 23rd of May, I joined in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride with fellow men and women across the globe to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and men's mental health on behalf of Movember.

Thank you to everyone that supported me in the 2021 Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride. Your generous donation has gone towards helping men across the globe to live happier and longer lives.

You have all personally contributed to funding worldwide support for prostate cancer and men’s mental health through the Movember Foundation.

Joining in, having fun and raising funds

Heading up from Krazy Horse London we had a small, but a mixed selection of rides. Paul riding his MV Agusta Dragster 800RR, George with his box-fresh Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse and I was on my Caballero Scrambler Deluxe – I think you’ll agree that’s a varied selection. We planned to meet up with others around the Tower Bridge area, travelling clockwise along the planned route.

It took us a good few miles to meet up with others, but by the time we hit Kew bridge we were among a group of about 30 riders. There is something special about riding in a group, but with everyone dressed so dapper and knowing we were all raising funds for such a great cause, it made this ride was even more special.

Prostate Cancer Statistics

  • Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. 
  • 307,000 men will die from prostate cancer each year.

Suicide Prevention – Men’s Mental Health

  • Suicide is the biggest killer of men aged 20-39, with ¾ of all suicides being male.
  • 510,000 men die from suicide each year, that’s one every minute.

 

This is a number that we seek to drastically change and can only be made possible through the generosity of people like you who have answered the call to make this world a better place.
