Following the 50th anniversary showing of the iconic bike film ‘On Any Sunday featuring Steve McQueen in November, Destination Triumph Dorset recently hosted another Project Pit Stop Moto Social.
Once again the car park was full of motorcycles as well as some classic E-Type Jaguars. Everyone got to enjoy locally roasted coffee served from a converted vintage Land Rover and wood-oven pizzas named after Triumph models, such as the Bonneville BBQ Chicken.
Among the hundreds of attendees were Titch and Billy from the BBC TV show "The Speedshop". Titch arrived on his classic custom Triumph that he had ridden to the D-Day beaches for the TV show in memory of his Royal Marine grandfather who had stormed Sword beach (you can watch the episode on iPLAYER).
As well as bringing the bike community together for brew and chat and maybe also talking about the ‘bigger’ stuff in their lives, the Project Pit Stop event was an opportunity to remind everyone of the upcoming Distinguished Gentleman's Ride, which represents a major milestone in Triumph’s sponsorship, marking 9 incredible years of support, with over 100,000 riders in over 900 cities across the world, raising over $31million USD for men’s mental health and prostate cancer awareness.
Project Pit Stop is kindly supported by The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride and Movember as they also help raise awareness of men’s mental health as well as prostate and testicular cancer. The team includes a G.P Doctor, mental health first aider and mechanic to ensure both man and machine are looked after and have the support they may need.
