What do you get when you get 500 of your closest motorcycle brethren, find an idyllic road to ride, add a very worthy cause, and a general good time? You get the Annual Distinguished Gentleman Ride.
We were privileged to provide a great behind the scene look for the annual ride, which benefits a few good causes, men’s mental health, and prostate cancer awareness, among others.
The DGR happens every year on the same day around the world, and the ultimate goal is to raise much-needed funds for these worthy initiatives.
This year, someone very close to our hearts, Doug McLaughlin, Founder of Nobleman Magazine, was selected to be the Grand Marshall for the event, and alongside other notables such as Eric Morley, Founder of BlueC Advertising, skateboard icon, Steve Caballero, who rode on behalf of Vans, and others, took on a lovely ride alongside the coastal scenery.
The journey started at Ducati of Newport Beach, made its way to the Back Bay, before meandering inland to Vans’ headquarters in Costa Mesa, until finally going all the way back to the picturesque Coast Hwy, on the way to Dana Point. The ride ended at the beautiful Monarch Beach Resort, where riders and guests were greeted by a beautiful celebration on the Grand Lawn, with sumptuous food and drinks, courtesy of the resort, and an overall great time.
G Social and our very own, intrepid founder, Gabo Garcia, himself an avid rider, took incredible footage to chronicle this wonderful event.
We can’t wait until next year!
