Join Team Triumph for Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2024


  1. West Coast Triumph to host 2024 Distinguished Gentleman's Ride in Glasgow
  2. Registration now open at

Motorcyclists in Glasgow will be taking part in the world's largest charity event for classic and vintage motorcycle enthusiasts on Sunday 19 May 2024, helping to raise awareness and funds for men’s mental health and prostate cancer research.

Supported by Triumph Motorcycles for the 11th year, The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride (DGR), will take place simultaneously around the world, with over 100 riders expected to ride from Glasgow in a ride hosted by West Coast Triumph.  

Sian Flavell, Marketing and Events Manager at West Coast Triumph said: “The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is a real staple in the motorcycling community calendar and it's become part of the fabric of West Coast Triumph Glasgow. It's an amazing opportunity to raise a huge amount of money for a very good cause. As ever, we'll be dressing dapper and welcoming the Glasgow Ride back to the West Coast Triumph Dealership. It really gives us goosebumps seeing folks ride together on classic bikes, new and old. We’re riding with and supporting friends here in Glasgow, as well as side by side, worldwide, with the whole DGR community.” 

To inspire all riders to raise as much money for Movember’s men’s mental health and prostate cancer initiatives as possible, Triumph will reward the top global fundraiser with an iconic Thruxton Final Edition; a rare opportunity to own a piece of motorcycling history. The epitome of café racer style, and the perfect motorcycle to turn heads at the DGR, the Thruxton Final Edition is the result of generations of Thruxton development. 

Beautifully finished in an exclusive Competition Green paint scheme, with hand-painted gold lining and signed by the artist, the Thruxton Final Edition blends the style and traditional elegance of the RS, paying homage to the Thruxton’s rich racing heritage. Set to become a desirable collectors' item, the Thruxton Final Edition will come with a certificate of authenticity featuring the bike’s unique VIN number, signed by members of the Thruxton 1200 design team and Triumph’s CEO, Nick Bloor. A unique Final Edition engine badge with a gold-finished surround and ‘Final Edition’ graphic infill will also be included.

A new clothing range featuring both the DGR and Triumph brands has been launched to support this year’s ride, and 2024 sees the launch of Team Triumph, a dedicated riders group, so all participants have the chance to join Triumph’s global community while raising money to promote men’s health. Triumph X DGR clothing prizes are available for the top five fundraisers in the group. 

Paul Stroud, Chief Commercial Officer, Triumph Motorcycles said: “We share the DGR’s ambitious goal for 2024; to bring even more riders together, in more places around the globe, to raise even more money for men’s mental health and prostate cancer. This year, we will be rewarding the highest fundraiser with an iconic motorcycle; the Thruxton Final Edition, as well as donating five exclusive clothing prizes to Team Triumph fundraisers. In this way, we hope to unite and inspire Triumph riders across the world on 19 May to join Team Triumph, dress dapper, raise money and enjoy the ride.”
