This year we assembled a crew for the annual Distinguished Gentleman's Ride! The ride is becoming so big it could become a national holiday! An international event held on the same day all over the world, riders get dressed in their finest suits, ties and kilts to ride dapper in honour of mens health promotion. Namely prostate cancer and mental health, where the ride event encourages people to ask the men in their life if they've had their prostate checked or how they're going generally... in a gentlemanly way.

At RSW, we went full hog where all of the RSW staff dressed dapper for a day, chefs, baristas, and floor legends in ties and tulle to serve people coming to dine in with us, spreading the word on DGR and its cause. And naturally, we closed the workshop so we and our members could all part take.
