The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride

Portland, OR

September 30, 2018

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is an annual charity event raising money to fight prostate cancer and supporting men’s mental health since 2012. What makes it unique is money is raised by individual motorcyclists across the globe who participate in local group rides, both as a fundraiser and to increase awareness. Riders bring out their best vintage or retro-styled motorcycle or scooter, put on their most dapper outfits and go for a cruise. Lots of tweed, waxed facial hair and cafe racers happening here.

Portland’s DGR¬†event was hosted by Two Stroke Coffee Co. which was the start and finish for the ride as well as the place for the post-ride shindig.

Although I did not participate in the ride portion of this year’s DGR, my current bike is not retro nor am I very dapper, I decided to support the 2018 ride by donating to riders and shooting some pics.
