The Bournemouth & Poole Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride
Motorcyclists unite globally as The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride shines the spotlight on men’s health in over 650 cities across 95 countries on Sunday 29th September2019.
With close to 1 million men losing their lives annually from suicide and prostate cancer, the annual event is calling on the community to stop men dying too young.
Bournemouth and Poole’s Distinguished Gentlefolk will once again be taking part with nearly 600 riders donning their cravats, tweaking their moustaches, pressing their tweeds and polishing their classic and vintage motorcycles as part of over 120,000 men and women worldwide in over 650 cities.
We will dress in our finest attire and ride to raise funds and awareness to prostate cancer and mental health on behalf of official charity to ride for men’s health partner, The Movember Foundation.
Founded in Sydney Australia in 2012 with just 2,500 riders taking part, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride has grown and raised over £14M for men’s health. The worldwide goal this year is to add a further £6M to the cause. Last year the Bournemouth & Poole Ride raised a staggering £36,400 surpassing our target of £30,000 and making us the 19th biggest in the world.
The ride will start at Poole Quay, stop off at Bournemouth Pier and will finish at Bournemouth School where there will be an event to celebrate The End of the Ride.
