The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride
On Sunday the 27th of September 2015, another event under the famous Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride cycle will be held. It will be another event of this kind in Poland. This year, we will meet also for the first time in Krakow!
This annual event gathers several thousand fans of classic, historic and custom motorcycles in more than 400 cities around the world. Apart from a pleasant ride on beautiful machines in an elegant society, the event is also organised to raise funds for prostate cancer research. The final stage of the ride will take place near the ICE Krakow Congress Centre, where Gentlemen will pose for a commemorative photo.
The project was started in Sydney, Australia, in 2012. The organisers decided that the often-negative stereotype of motorcycle riders must be changed and may also become a challenge for supporting a worthy cause – raising awareness of and combating prostate cancer. In 2013, over 11,000 participants in 145 cities around the world raised over 277,000 USD. In 2014, as many as 20,000 participants in 257 cities in 58 countries raised over 1.5 million USD for prostate cancer research. The challenge for this year is to raise 3 million USD.
