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, including Moto-tyres.co.uk, 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.
