Here’s our video of last year’s event and information on how it went:
Triumph Owners Motorcycle Club Glasgow organised the ride which assembled at Morrisons Carpark by The Fort Shopping Centre at 11am, where the 194 riders gathered for photo opportunities and a safety briefing. Through the wind and rain some heartfelt words and motivational speeches were expressed before the riders descended upon George Square where the public watched in wonder as moustaches were detangled, pipes were smoked and pocket watches checked. Rox Diamond Jewellers welcomed the riders at George Square with gift bags, prizes and goody bags courtesy of Zenith, who are a sponsor of the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride.
After plenty of photographs, fundraising and buffoonery the damp and dapper ladies and gentlemen embarked on the final leg of their excursion, riding to the Vintage After Party which was hosted at the brand new Triumph Glasgow showroom at Hillington Park.
All makes and models of motorcycles arrived collectively in style, along with pristine classic cars from Triumph Sports Six Classic Car Club and even a vintage fire engine from Scottish Fire and Rescue Heritage Trust. There was live music from Glasgow-based band Dirty Diamond and the Gunslinger as well as complimentary tea, coffee and cakes throughout the afternoon at Triumph Glasgow.
Awards from Triumph Glasgow were also presented to the Best Dressed Female, Most Dapper Gentleman and Best Motorcycle in Show, with prizes donated from luxury tweed specialists Walker Slater and the very successful Wax On Wax Off vehicle cleaning care professionals. Artists, designers, vintage retailers, shoe shine valeters, bearded barbers and even Prostate Cancer UK were exhibiting at the Vintage After Party to help raise awareness and contribute to the incredible £12,000 raised.
A fantastic effort from all those involved and for a very worth while cause.
