This year’s Distinguished Gentleman's Ride was a huge success! Having over 92,000 participants in 580 cities across 95 countries to help raise over $4.36 Million (USD). Lining the streets with classy gents and ladies on café racers, bobbers, scramblers and other marvelous custom motorcycles, not only to to celebrate camaraderie among fellow riders but for a greater purpose – to raise both fund and awareness for prostate cancer and men’s mental health.
In relation to this, Manila is one of the cities that once again took part of the simultaneous event around the world, organized by Marc Laccay, Briggs Baritugo and Ma. Clarissa C. Tiglao. Commenced last 24th of September 2017 with 614 registered riders. The ride started from the Cultural Center of the Philippines to the City hall of Quezon City then Shaw Boulevard and raised over $3,000 (USD) locally.
