Gloucester Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2019 turned out to be more successful than last year, with residents getting behind the event.

The ladies and gentlemen looked wonderful on Sunday, September 29 and of coarse behaved in the most distinguished manner as they rode around the region.

The destination this year was the Gloucester Men's Shed where everyone enjoyed an array of home baked goodies and a chat before exploring the facilities of the Men's Shed.

On the fundraising side of things, the Gloucester Distinguished Gentleman's Ride raised $2,037 towards Men's Health and Prostate Cancer research through 42 online registrations. Craig Ireland was the highest single fundraiser through the DGR online facility.

An additional fundraising effort on the day raised $653.60 cash with $276.80 each going to two local groups - the Men's Shed and the Gloucester Prostate Cancer Support Group.

Organisers thanked the riders and all volunteers behind the scenes who made the ride a success.
