Road Thrill is a medium that brings together a gathering of happy people. We meet, travel and discover to bust the stress and get away from the mundane professional assignments. So, as we seek to gain peace and explore the vast canvas of things around us, it is in the prudence of all of us to detach ourselves from any rough attitudes, ego and heroism, for they are the potential spoil sports everywhere.

Road Thrill: Community Chapters:
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia in 2012 by Mark Hawwa. After inspiration from a photograph featuring classic suits and vintage motorcycles, Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way to combat the often-negative stereotype of motorcyclists and connect the global motorcycling community and to raise funds for a cause important to every rider.
The event has been attracting an increasing number of participants around the world every year since 2012. Since then, it has raised a total of $27.45M USD and brought together over 300,000 riders. This year, the motorcycling fundraising event looks to reach the milestone of raising over $30M USD on its 10th year anniversary, to continue funding research and programs with Movember such as the Social Connections Challenge and the Veteran’s and First Responders Challenge.
