The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

For one day a year, thousands of Distinguished Gentleman (and genteel lady folk) in hundreds of cities worldwide press their cravats, starch their tweed and sit astride their classic-styled motorcycles to support men's health.

In 2016, Hamilton's inaugural ride raised an amazing NZD16,000, placing it 3rd highest fundraising in New Zealand (10 cities participated).

The 2018 ride has been designed to deliver even more entertainment for riders along the route. The ride will again allow participants the chance to enjoy a relaxing ride around Hamilton with like-minded dapper folk, before culminating in Hood Street where we encourage riders to stay and socialise.

The event highlights the fashion, bikes and ideals of a bygone era, with a free street party for riders, family, friends and anyone with an interest in motorcycles.

The 2018 event will be raising funds for The Movember Foundation.
