NYC: North America's No. 1 Distinguished Gentleman's Ride in Photos
October 3, 2018 | Rahoul Ghose | NYC Motorcyclist
Seven New York-based photographers volunteered their valuable services in documenting this year's Distinguished Gentleman's Ride though Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. Some shot while riding, some were passengers on the back of a bike, and some found stationary positions along the route, which took 800-plus riders over the Williamsburg and Queensboro Street bridges, through Central Park, Columbus Circle and Grand Army Plaza, and down the FDR, ducking under the Manhattan Bridge. The group, fronted by ride leaders Mike Higgins and Allister Klingensmith, included DGR founder Mark Hawwa as well as a host of international and local sponsors, members of Motofellas NYC and their DGR build -- the Dapper Braaaper, and fundraising giant Vincent Nicolai and the New York Classic Riders, who were the top non-corporate fundraising team in the world.
