This Sunday, the Rock will see the return of sharp-dressed motorcycle enthusiasts and polished classic and modern classic motorcycles for the 8th Gentleman's Ride Gibraltar.

The Gentleman's Ride is an international charity event in which participants dress 'dapper' and ride their motorcycles with the aim of fundraising for the international charity, Movember. This year Dapper Riders Gibraltar, who organise the Gibraltar ride, have decided to also raise money for the local charity Clubhouse Gibraltar.

The Dapper Riders aim to beat the success of the 2022 event in which 115 participants managed to raise £5,908 for Movember and £8,794 for Cancer Relief Gibraltar.

Contrary to popular belief, this event is not just for men and, in fact, there is a prize for Most Dapper Lady as well as Most Dapper Gent.

Dapper Riders Gibraltar aim to promote seven core values; Helping others, seeking improvement, teamwork, hard work, taking pride in appearance, appreciating what we have and the seventh value, which is made possible by the previous six, have fun.

This year's event will take place on Sunday, May 21 with participants gathering at Fish Market Lane car park at 11am for a static motorcycle display. Participants will depart at 1pm for the Round the Rock ride which will finish at 2.30pm in Ocean Village where there will be another static motorcycle display, prize-giving, a raffle by Clubhouse Gibraltar and live music by TCB.

Prizes will be awarded for Most Money Raised, Most Dapper Lady, Most Dapper Gent, Best Facial Hair, Best Custom Build, Best Original Classic and Furthest Travelled.
