Leeds Hundreds of motorcyclists ride out for charity event

Hundreds of men have driven round Leeds on classic motorbikes wearing tweed suits as part of a worldwide charity event.

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Lift is held annually to raise plutocrat for men’s internal health and prostate cancer charity Movember.

In Leeds, 200 motorcyclists set off from the Royal Armouries structure at 1215 BST for a rally around the megacity.

Internationally further than 100,000 men share in the event.

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Lift was started in Sydney, in 2012 by Mark Hawwa.

He was inspired by a print of the television Show frenetic Men’s Don Draper, who was featured riding a classic bike while wearing his finest suit.

Mr Hawwa decided a themed lift would be a great way of connecting niche motorcycle suckers and communities while raising finances to support men.

The event is concentrated on men’s internal health, self-murder forestallment and prostate cancer exploration and since 2012 further than£ 35m($ 44m) has been raised.

Organisers in Leeds said this time they anticipate to raise about£ 20,000.
