Houston… Houston…

A Distinguished Gentleman (Orin O’Neill ohotos)

The Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride to benefit the Movember Foundation’s men’s health programs, and other causes locally, happened Sunday. Rides took place all over the world… including Houston, Tex., where I happened to be.

DGR Houston meetup

As you can see, there was a good turnout, in spite of a weather forecast that was saying it would rain (and not rain like in Seattle, but rain like you find in a subtropical climate like Houston’s). The Houston ride, which was one of the first in the U.S. also benefitted suicide prevention programs.

DGR Houston scooters

There were several scooters. While some of the DGR rides are vintage-only, in Houston any bike is welcome.

Cushman Eagle for sale

There was even a Cushman Eagle that was for sale.

The ride went through the Houston Heights neighborhood (56 feet above sea level), which is still mostly nice little old houses of the type you’d see in Seattle’s Ballard-Fremont-Wallingford neighborhoods.

Bratwurst with kraut and spicy mustard

There were stops for food and beverages. The bratwurst was really good.

The DGR rides scheduled for Austin and San Antonio were posponed due to rain; Austin’s happens Sunday, while the San Antonio ride will take place in October.

Of course there are lots more pix. Find them right here
