Distinguished gentlemen roll through Nelson


It’s all in the name of prostate cancer for the group of dapper gentlemen rolling through the region on smart-looking motorcycles today.

A group of around 20 Nelson motorcyclists, dressed to the nines, are rolling out from Founders Heritage Park as part of a worldwide fundraising ‘Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride’ for prostate cancer.

Organiser Matthew Oppenheim says they’re aiming to turn heads.

“We’re going to ride slow, get noticed for the right reasons and raise money for the cause.”

Already, riders have raised US$3,052,418 internationally which will all go towards Prostate Cancer.
