Moto-tyres.co.uk supports Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride
Moto-tyres.co.uk is donating 5,000 US dollars to the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, which supports projects to improve men’s health.
On 24 September 2017, tens of thousands of bikers worldwide will once more don their finest threads and dust off their vintage and classic motorbikes for a city tour. And all for a good cause: the event, which is taking place for the sixth time, has the aim of raising money to fight prostate cancer and fund suicide prevention initiatives. Last year it collected more than 3.6 million US dollars, and in 2017 organisers hope to raise over 5 million dollars.
As in previous years, Moto-tyres.co.uk, the online bikers’ shop from Delticom, Europe’s largest online tyre retailer, is once more sponsoring the event, and is donating 5,000 US dollars towards the rides in 10 cities and four countries: Germany (Berlin, Munich, Düsseldorf, Hamburg), France (Paris, Bordeaux), Italy (Milan, Florence), and the UK (London, Oxford).
“The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is a great event that we are delighted to support. The success of the rides in previous years proves that the topic of men’s health lies close to many people’s hearts. So we’d like to invite all bikers and bike fans to get involved in the event, either by getting on their bikes or by donating”, says Oliver Pflaum of Moto-tyres.co.uk. A further motivator: the person who raises the most money in each city will receive a complete set of Michelin tyres.
Last year the event saw bikers hit the streets of over 500 cities in 90 countries all over the world – a real image boost for the sport of biking.
