Vintage Classics & Modern Retros Ride For Men’s Health
Most of you know the go but for those who don’t, here’s all you need to know about the DGR…
…Each year thousands of riders around the world roll out in their finest attire to raise awareness around men’s mental health and generate funds for research into prostate cancer. The ride definitely isn’t just for gents and it definitely isn’t a bro-down. You ride? You’re in! The only thing between your legs that matters for the DGR is a motorcycle and if you don’t have a bike, hit up a mate who does and hop on the back.
Join Team Kommune
First things first, put Sunday 22nd May on your calendar! Nice, now go ahead and register as a rider or pillion here, then join our Kommune team here and help us smash our $20k fundraising target. Details of the Melbourne ride route will be visible in your DGR profile after you’ve registered. We’ve got some top drawer moto prizes to give away for the most dollars raised, best dressed participant and peer voted best custom bike.
Mo’ Motos Mo’ Mates
This year’s Melbourne ride is a real milestone for our community and the Kommune Konnections program, which has been funded by the DGR and Movember as part of their Social Connections Challenge. The support we’ve received from these legends has enabled us to create more opportunities for more of us to get together more often, on and off the bike. Being part of this global wellbeing initiative has been a catalyst for the expansion of our moto family and a great conversation starter when it comes to supporting the people we wrench and ride with.
We can all agree on the importance of communicating openly about the challenges that impact mental and physical health but it’s not always an easy subject to approach. In our experience at Kommune, a bit of moto chatter is the best kind of ice breaker and if there’s one event where moto chatter fills the air it’s the DGR. Whether you rock up in a show stopping vintage costume or just pop a handkerchief in your pocket, it’s your presence that matters most. Let the ride do the rest.
Caffeine & Gas
Meet us at Kommune around 8:30am on Sunday 22nd May for coffee, donuts and group photos before we roll to the start together. Don’t forget to fill up your tank before we leave! Traditionally the DGR has been a showcase for classic, vintage and modern-retro bikes but if you don’t fall into that style category don’t worry, we’re keen to ride with anyone who shows up for the noble cause.
