Kippford Man Gets Set To Join In Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride For Charity

On Sunday the 21st of May 2023, Donald Reid from Kippford in Dumfries and Galloway will be  riding his 1982 Moto Guzzi Spada 950cc in The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride with fellow men and women across the globe to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and men’s mental health on behalf of Movember.

Donal Said “Men die on average 6 years earlier than women and for largely preventable reasons. The number of men that are suffering is growing, and we need to do something about that. So, before I press my tweed and polish my boots, I’m asking you to join me in raising funds and awareness for these causes by donating what you can for this meaningful cause and to help the men we love, live happier and healthier lives.”

This year it’s expected that over 90,000 riders in over 900 cities across 105 countries will take part.


  • The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is an annual international charity event celebrating classic and vintage styled motorcycles and the dapper gentlefolk that ride them.
  • DGR unites classic and vintage style motorcycle riders all over the world to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health.
  • The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia, by Mark Hawwa. Inspired by a photo of TV Show Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit, Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way of connecting niche motorcycle enthusiasts and communities while raising funds to support the men in our lives.
  • On Sunday, May 21st 2023, tens of thousands of distinguished gentlefolk in hundreds of cities worldwide will don their cravats, tweak their moustaches, press their tweed and sit astride their classic and vintage styled motorcycles to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and men’s mental health programs.


  • Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health on a global scale.
