The Bournemouth & Poole Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride

Riders in Poole - The Bournemouth & Poole Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride


Bournemouth-Poole, England is officially taking part in the world's largest charitable on-road event for owners of classic and vintage styled motorcycles on Sunday, May 21, 2023.

We are encouraging classic motorcyclists around the world to ride for prostate cancer and men’s mental health on behalf of Movember. The ride will start at Poole Quay, stop off at Bournemouth Pier and will finish at Bournemouth School where there will be an event to celebrate The End of the Ride. This year our ride will be the biggest and best yet. This year we expect over 600 magnificent motorcycles both vintage and modern retro in style. Our target this year is talk more about men’s health and raise over £50,000. 

Important Facts:
- Registrations open in March at
- Ride details are subject to change and may be amended based on weather.
- Fundraise for men’s health and be rewarded.
