Classic and vintage biking in fine style for a good cause –
worldwide: On 25 September, bike fans from around the world will
gather and ride together to support projects to improve men’s health.
Delticom’s motorbike sector (Moto-tyres.co.uk online shop) is
supporting trips in ten cities and four countries, and is calling on
bikers to join in.
Proceeds from the campaign will be donated to a number of projects
combating prostate cancer and promoting suicide prevention.
HANOVER, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Biking to make a difference: Once again this year, on 25 September 2016,
tens of thousands of bikers around the world will be sprucing themselves
up for the “Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride”. Once suitably attired, they
will climb aboard their classic motorbikes and create a spectacular
streetscape in more than 400 cities and around 80 countries throughout
the world – and all for a good cause: the aim of this event, which has
been running annually on the last weekend in September since 2012, is to
promote men’s health. Donations and sponsorship are used to fund
projects combating prostate cancer and promoting suicide prevention
throughout the world. Last year, it raised more than 2.3 million US
dollars; the target for 2016: five million dollars.
As in previous years, Delticom’s motorbike sector and its online shops,
are sponsoring the campaign. In Germany (Berlin, Hamburg, Düsseldorf,
Munich), France (Paris and Bordeaux), Italy (Milan and Florence) and the
UK (London and Oxford), the online shop from Europe’s largest online
tyre retailer is supporting rides in ten bike-mad cities with a total of
5,000 US dollars.
Each individual biker can contribute to the success of the Gentleman’s
Ride in their own way, however, by organising a ride of their own,
participating, or donating. In addition, all bikers taking part are
potential “fundraisers”, who can be supported by donations. Anyone
raising more than 200 dollars will receive the exclusive “Ride Dapper”
patch, and will be entered in the “Gentlefolk” prize draw, where
attractive prizes are up for grabs.
“Not only is the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride a great idea which
successfully promotes men’s health every year; thanks to the classic
motorbike models and bikers in their Sunday best, it’s also a real
eye-catcher. Naturally, it thrives on participation. We are inviting all
motorbike enthusiasts to take part in a ride near them. And if you can’t
make it yourself, why not support any friends or colleagues taking part
with a donation”, says Oliver Pflaum, Sales Manager for Moto-tyres.co.uk.
