The 'Distinguished Gentleman Ride' in Dubai
A motorcycle tour to raise awareness of prostate cancer
An annual event, this year’s worldwide Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride is coming to Dubai, one of 250 cities taking part and bringing vintage enthusiasts together for a common cause... "Dressing dapper and touring the town on two wheels" – an initiative that was inspired by a single photo of Mad Men’s Don Draper.
“Due to the popularity of the event, we expect 40 to 50 bikes to take part this year,” said Adel Gasan, one of the organisers for the event. “We’ll be setting off from Café Rider in Al Quoz and riding in convoy towards JBR.” Adel also pointed out that the ride some specific guidelines: “The distinguished Gentlemen’s ride is a ride for classic-styled bikes only. While we’d love to ride with other makes and models, the essential feel of the event would be lost if we opened it to other modes of transport.”
Appropriate bikes can be rented from Eagle Rider Motorcycles and Prestige Motorcycle Tours and Rentals in Dubai.
