Hood River (Sept 2017) — On Sunday, September 24, thousands of well-appointed gentleman donning neck-ties and tailed wool suits will ride in solidarity for men’s health issues. Know globally as The Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride (link to - https://www.gentlemansride.com/), Velomacchi (link to - https://www.velomacchi.com/), makers of innovative moto carrying-equipment and accessories, is proud to join and sponsor the 2017 ride.

Every year tens of thousands of “distinguished gentlefolk” in hundreds of cities worldwide ride motorcycles in the major fundraising event known as The Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride (DGR). Founded in 2013, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride began in Sydney, Australia, inspired by a photo of Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit. The themed ride was designed to combat the often-negative stereotype of men on motorcycles, whilst connecting niche motorcycle communities together and raising money and awareness of men’s health.

Velomacchi President and Chief Designer, Kevin Murray — a connoisseur of vintage motorcycles and self-described gentlemen and privateer — commented, “The DGR is a fantastic cultural event supporting great causes. In these times of division, it is inspiring to see how a common passion and perspective on motorcycling can unite so many people around the world to celebrate and support health.”

Inspired by tradition and driven by innovation, Velomacchi keeps their focus simple: to build premium gear for high speed travel. Inspired by the Italian culture of speed and by those who work tirelessly to build their own bikes for race and exploration, Velomacchi stands proudly behind their motto “Facta Non Verba” …Deeds Not Words. As a company, Velomacchi is committed to action, hard work, craftsmanship, and innovative solutions.

For the 2017 Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride, Velomacchi will be joining aboard the backs of many of the event’s top fundraisers, by donating 25 Speedway Roll-top 40L Backpacks (MSRP $379) to the event’s top fundraisers.
