THIS LISTING IS FROM 2017; 2018 may be similar: September 24, Sunday The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride (non-club event)
To raise awareness and help fund the cure for prostate cancer. "Please be mindful that this is a classic styled motorcycle event. This includes Café Racers, Bobbers, Modern Classics, Scramblers and Classic Scooters. If you are not sure whether your bike fits one of these categories please check out our helpful style guide. If your current bike does not fit one of these styles but you still want to be involved, borrowing or hiring a suitable bike is perfectly acceptable!" There are prizes for the highest fundraisers.

The fine print, hidden deep in the FAQ: "DGR is simply about the niches within the motorcycle world. It is not an event for our friends on cruisers, sports bikes, motards, modern plastic scooters, dirt bikes, adventure bikes, tourers and Can-Ams....One of our goals is to keep these events small and manageable by our volunteer hosts. In order to do this we restrict the size of the event by restricting the style of bikes. This event is no different from a classic all-English motorcycle meet or a HOG ride whereby it is expected that you meet their bike criteria to participate. This event is exclusive to the classic styles within our guide."
