A ride in the best yarn for a good cause
Pictures by Michael Raadts
The Gentlemen’s Ride is not just an exit for classically styled motorcyclists in their best suit. It is the international event for men on café racers, bobbers or custom bikes, which is primarily a fundraiser for the research and development of remedies for prostate cancer. With more than 250 bikers from 57 countries, the event was launched by the British Don Draper in 2012. The background was not the dapper appearance of the classic biker but primarily his donation to the Cancer Fund UK.
As we can see on the pictures below, we also participated in the donation run this year, which led the Thunderbike team and many like-minded people on a tour from Dusseldorf to Kaldenkirchen. Also included was photographer Michael Raadts, who accompanied us throughout the ride and provided the numerous photos.
