“ The Art of the Vintage Motorcycle”
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride | September 30
Various locations – 1:00-4:00 PM; post-ride gathering, 4:00 PM at the Royal American.
The Charleston Arts Festival and Ellev Advertising Agency (www.ellev.com) are collaborating on a first Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride for Charleston. This inaugural local iteration will be a part of an international event, founded in 2012, and now taking place in over 650 cities across 95 countries, all on September 30.
This event will bring together owner-riders of classic and vintage motorcycles as part of this international initiative to raise money for prostate cancer research as well as for treatment of mental health issues affecting men. To date, the DGR movement has raised more than $13 million for these causes. The fifteen-mile ride circuit through the Charleston peninsula will include stops at a number of Charleston’s finest watering holes and will culminate at a post-ride event at the Royal American with the opportunity to view the array of these magnificent rare and vintage machines.
