Video: Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride NYC

Posted in: Events, Video

On September 28, 2014, we suited up for a very, very silly motorcycle ride through New York City. For charity. Sort of.

For the third year in a row the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride has continued to expand its global reach. This year the event raised nearly $1.5M for cancer research and riders in more than 250 cities constituting 57 countries participated. Find out more at

Union Garage hosted coffee and breakfast at the shop before rolling out over the Brooklyn Bridge to join a sprawling mass of bespoke motorcyclists gathered in TriBeCa. From there we followed a loosely organized route up to 81st & Amsterdam, through Central Park, and then around (and around) Columbus Circle. The ride eventually made its way to the Biergarden at the Standard Hotel.

Us? We broke off to find brunch and a Bloody Mary before opening up the shop for what turned out to be a busy and beautiful Indian Summer Sunday. Thanks to everyone who came out for the ride.

And big thanks to Ryan Handt for providing the pictures below, and to Roberto Serrini and Miranda Kendrick for shooting and producing the excellent video up top.
