AROUND 150 bikers put on their finest suits and rode across Salisbury at the weekend, as part of a global motorcycle ride to support men's mental health.

The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride took place across the world on Sunday, inviting riders to show off a smart dress code while riding their classic and custom made machines across their hometown.

Working in partnership with the Movember Foundation, the aim of the event is to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer research and men's mental health issues.

This was the second time the bike ride has been organised for Salisbury, and the route boasted sites including Wilton House, Salisbury Cathedral and The Rifles Berkshire and Wiltshire Museum.

The event this year was organised by Chelsea Bee, and was supported by James and the Superior Motorcycle experience, who provided three Brough Superiors and marshals to support the ride.

One of the ride leaders, Paul Eaton, said the turnout was "amazing", adding: "This year's ride was the wettest many had seen and although conditions were monsoon-like, most kept to the Dapper dress code - look your best regardless!"
