The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is a worldwide charity ride event for men’s prostate cancer awareness and research.

Each year motorcyclists everywhere pull out their custom and classic bikes, their Sunday best, and head out for a dapper meet up. The fellas at the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride wrangled up a huge collection of photographs featuring the participating women riders from around the world- illustrating the wide variety of motorcycles and dress involved in the event. The DGR has specific rules for participation- you must dress “Dapper”, and your bike must be classic in design (vintage, custom, or retro modern). The idea behind this is to elevate the effort of involvement and create a cohesive style across the planet. Distinguished riders are just that, and their debonaire outfits with shiny boots, classy coats, suspenders, and bow ties/scarves, create a spectacle for onlookers. Going through all of the images in this article, you’ll have a hard time telling that the photos were taken in London, Sydney, Los Angeles, Toronto… all over the place. (Photo captions include location and photographer information.)

With 37,257 registered riders on GentlemansRide.com across over 70 countries, nearly three million dollars (USD) was raised this year.
