On Sunday 27th September, Phil will be wheeling his bike out once again, along with bikers from across the globe, to set off for the annual Distinguished Gentleman's Ride to raise awareness and funds for Prostate Cancer and Mental Health.
Known as ‘The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride’ the event unites classic and vintage style motorcycle riders all over the world to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health. Last year’s ride saw 116,000 riders cover 678 cities across 104 countries, and collectively raised an amazing $6,000,000.
This year’s ride, however, is unlike those of previous years. Due to the Covid Pandemic, this year it will be a Solo Ride rather than a group event, and so Phil will be delivering a ‘dapper dude’ performance around the roads and lanes of Richmond. Dressed in his finery, and with his Purple Creative colour matched helmet, Phil be riding the streets of our local area on his trusted Triumph Bonneville ‘Bonnie.’
After an isolating few months for everyone, the focus this year is to bring riders from around the world together - so although they may all be riding alone, Phil and the other bikers will be connected globally riding solo together.
So, although things are happening a little differently this year, anything that can help raise awareness and a bit of money for such a wonderful cause is worth doing. If you’d like to learn more about the ride and the cause it goes towards helping, then please visit Phil’s donation page. Your support and any donations would be greatly appreciated for this worthy cause.
