    Default Distinguished Gentleman seeks funds for Prostate

    Actually over 2,000 distinguished gentlemen will ride their classic style motorcycles all over Australia on a fundraiser for prostate cancer research on Sunday 27th September. This event, originating in Australia, is now global with 30,000 riders in over 400 cities.

    The cause is not as fashionable as some, but it is estimated prostate cancer kills 500,000 men every year.

    About The Gentlemans Ride

    I will be riding in the Sydney event together with over 500 other riders who have already contributed over $130,000. The ride is on Sunday morning from Sydney Uni to the Rocks, Luna Park, Botanic Gardens and return. If there are any other motorcycle riders out there it is not too late to join in:


    If anyone would like to help my fundraising for this cause feel free to go to my fundraising page below.

    What if motor cycle riding increases the risk of prostate cancer?

    All is not lost. Vintage motorbikes require balls to ride them and they adorn willy, even if he won't.

    Hey Guys, the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2016 is on Sunday 25 September. Less than three weeks away.

    Yes, your town too may come to a standstill as hundreds of hooligan bikers raise funds for Prostate Cancer Research and Men's Mental Health. This is an annual world wide event that intends to raise over $5million this year.

    I will be riding my old BMW cycle in the Sydney event. You have been warned.

    All donations are gratefully received and every bit helps. My secure sponsorship page is below.

    Thank you
