A Very Distinguished Result

DGR Wollongong
Riders regroup at Wollongong’s first Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, hosted by City Coast Motorcycles.

On Sunday September 24, scores of dapper ladies and gents packed their manners aboard classic and vintage motorcycles and rode for the Movember Foundation.

What a sight to behold and what an achievement! 172 registrations, magnificent machines and new friendships formed.

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in 2012 by Mark Hawwa in Sydney. The charity event, raises much needed funds for prostate cancer research and male suicide prevention.

For the first time, Wollongong rode in unison with 600 cities across the globe. Participants took in a scenic route encompassing Flagstaff Hill before regrouping at beautiful Bulli Beach.

We are excited to announce Wollongong’s first Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride has raised $20,568 for men’s health. Our esteemed colleagues at Young Henrys  kindly sponsored our local top fundraisers.

Congratulations to our winners:

HIGHEST FUNDRAISER: Jon Spark
2ND PLACE: Michael Jobson
3RD PLACE: Rob Veljanoski

We would also like to extend our gratitude to Lord Mayor Cr Gordon Bradbery and Wollongong City Council, Senior Constable Andrew Cotton and Wollongong LAC, Triumph Motorcycles Australia, 96.5 Wave FM, The Illawarra Mercury, North Wollongong Hotel, Young Henrys, John Keogh, Michael Jobson and all of our volunteers who helped Jane and the City Coast Motorcycles crew make the day possible. 

And thanks to each and every rider for joining us in this remarkable event; we can’t wait to dress dapper and do it all again in 2018!

Success at the Mt Kembla 2-Stroke Cup

MX Team City Coast Motorcycles were loving that sweet two-banger sound at the Mt Kembla 2-Stroke Cup on the weekend.  They also cleaned up with some fantastic results!

Jake Nugent nicely won the 35+ division. Calib Best fought hard in the largest category – the City Coast Motorcycles 250cc event – taking home a well-earned second place. Lachy Caunt came third in the Clubman class. Great racing was also put in by Liam Williams and Jake Watts. City Coast Motorcycles resident two-banger fanatic, Justin “Bushy” Bush got stuck in to both the Senior 125s and his microphone duties.

Our FMX Team’s Tom Robinson and Dylon Mcdonald also threw down for the excited crowds.

And then our own Mark Merlo aka The Captain claimed third prize in the big one – The Mt Kembla Two Stroke Cup – ahead of team mate Calib Best in fourth.

Wollongong Images photographer Noel Downey said the event was nothing short of spectacular:

“The way the day unfolded was excellent; the program was great, there were national level riders and up-and-comers, plus the weather turned it on for us. Being a two-stroke event – and one of the only real good ones I have been to in Australia and America – it was just phenomenal,” Noel said.

The annual Mt Kembla 2-stroke Cup began in 2016, with Corey James crowned champion and Jaiden Corrigan taking out second place.

Thanks to Shannon and Al Ninness, Justin Bush and Wollongong Motorcycle Club for their hard work in building another top-notch event.
