RIDERS RALLY RAISES THOUSANDS FOR MEN’S HEALTH…A sunny Sunday ride in Luxembourg helped raise thousands for charity while giving dapper gents a chance to show off their style and end the stigma on talking about men’s health.
The second edition of the Luxembourg Distinguished Gentleman’s Ridesaw some 95 riders dressed in tweed and sharp suits, on classic or retro bikes hit the road en-masse on Sunday afternoon. The ride ended at Paname in the Gare district of Luxembourg City.
“It was a great success and we had really wonderful weather,” co-organiser Mark Kitchell told Delano on Monday, adding: “We raised €13,500. Considering we raised €5,000 last year, this was a big success.”
The proceeds go to the Movember Foundation, fighting prostate cancer and preventing male suicide.
Part of a global initiative, the ride is inspired by a photo of the character Don Draper from the television series “Mad Men”, pictured in a suit on a bike. Kitchell last week told Delano that Draper epitomises the kind of man who would have benefited from being able to talk about his problems.
