I've ridden the one in Tampa/St Pete (1 1/2hrs away) twice (2014 and 2015). In 2015 some of the riders tried to escort us like a police escort, so we bailed.

As for 2019, the DGR website sucks for info and I can not find any details about who would back the ride in Knoxville, Tn.

This will be my third DGR. Really enjoy every aspect of it, each time learning more about the cause, and finding great hidden places in the Dallas area.

Bump!

With a thank you video -- I'll be doing these throughout the fundraiser. I posted it here because some of you donated to me (thanks!!!) and also to show one of the things that helped get more donations last year.

I encourage you to do something similar, even if it's just with your mobile phone, etc. Showing the bike and your face helps establish a connection between us and potential donors. I explain my personal reasons for supporting the DGR and the Movember Foundation, and "publicly" recognize people by their initials and general area.

Regular donations give us a reason to make more of these, which in turn helps the fundraiser stay top of mind for our friends, coworkers, audiences, etc.



What other things do you do to help raise money for the DGR?

Participated for the first time last year. Great cause and great time. Many cool bikes to ogle. Although they indicate it is for classic and classic styled bikes, based on what I saw, anyone can ride anything with 2 or 3 wheels.
