Well That Happened... and it Made a Hell of a Noise!
So Yesterday a global motorcycle phenomenon took place. Across more than 400 cities and towns in 80 plus countries, over 55,000 gentlemen and gentlewomen took up their motorcycles, found a few friends and rode.

Stories of style, sound and seriously bespoked steeds are trending across all social media platforms. Worth checking out if you have a spare 5 minutes.

London played a massive role in this year's ride. Not only did it provide 1061 well heeled riders; but it has also, so far, raised £151,494. And that amount is going up every 5 minutes as donations keep rumbling in.
In fact the top fund raiser of all the riders across the world is a gentleman from the London ride. The magnificent Mr D. Blundell has raised nearly £19,000.
Right now, the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride has raised over $3.3m in 2016's ride, which is of course growing all the time. For a bunch of loonies, riding around cities dressed up to the nines on a Sunday morning, that's pretty bloody good.
See our "Watch a Good Ride This Sunday" blog for more details on the causes
So if you missed out this year, sign up as soon as you can for the DGR 2017. Start planning your outfit and pimping your ride... more bikes = more tweed = more money... for some great causes.
It has been a real pleasure for the Team at Dry Patch to be sponsor of the London ride. We are already planning how we can get much more involved for next year's ride.... Watch this Patch
