Around the World with the 2016 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride

On Sunday, September 25, 2016, more than 50,000 riders in over 500 cities and 90 countries gathered for the world’s largest motorcycling charity event, the 2016 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. Donning dapper attire and riding a variety of classic and vintage-styled bikes, motorcyclists raised both awareness and funds for the Movember Foundation’s men’s health programs.

According to the ride’s official website, the event raised almost $3.5M thus far with a total of 57,197 registered riders. The United States was the top fundraising country with over $1.1M generated by a total of 9,194 riders. Australia and England followed with $640K (4,406 riders) and $496K (4,114 riders), respectively. The top individual fundraiser was David Blundell who participated in the London ride and raised nearly $29,000.
