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 DGR has spread to more countries, cities and towns each year. In 2018, more than 120,000 distinguished gentlefolk took to their classic and vintage motorcycles for rideouts in 650 cities across the globe. To find your nearest DGR rideout event please visit the DGR website.
HOW ARE TRIUMPH INVOLVED?
Aside from supporting the ride through engaging with the global community of Triumph modern classic fans and riders, we are also donating several motorcycles globally for the DGR to reward fundraising efforts. Last year, a record breaking 120,000 distinguished gentlefolk in hundreds of cities worldwide donned their cravats, pressed their tweed, sat astride their motorcycles and raised $6.3 million USD for men's health. This great achievement came in no small part thanks to our passionate fans and their incredible fundraising efforts.
