Despite the precipitation that arrived later in the morning, spirits remained high as the 350 plus riders taking part in this years Distinguished Gentleman's Ride set off on their 18k course via Noosa's iconic Hastings Street in support of Prostate Cancer and Men's Mental Health.
The event was very well organised and ran smoothly thanks to a dedicated team of volunteers headed up by their tireless coordinator Cameron MacGowan. Records numbers where achieved in both attendance and funds raised on the Sunshine Coast.
For more details, check out Debbie Noyek's second interview with Cameron MacGowan below.

On Sunday September 30th 2018, over 120,000 distinguished gentlefolk in over 650 cities worldwide will don their cravats, tustle their ties, press their tweed, and sit astride their classic and vintage styled motorcycles to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and men's mental health.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia by Mark Hawwa. It was inspired by a photo of Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit. Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way to combat the often-negative stereotype of men on motorcycles, whilst connecting niche motorcycle communities together.
That first ride in 2012 brought together over 2,500 riders across 64 cities.
Debbie Noyek interviewed Cameron on her Sunday afternoon show Easy Street, to talk about the annual event that has hit the street's of Noosa annually since 2014.

Helen Cooke (above) was recently interviewed by Mike Scott on Monday Morning's with Scotty. The main topic of conversation was the Sunshine Coast Reconciliation Group’s up-coming 'Shared History' seminar: Archaeology – Adding to Australia’s First Nation’s Stories, to be held on Thursday, 2 August. Attendees are set to be taken on a unique journey exploring how Australian archaeology has the opportunity to develop the foundations for a shared identity.
Event co-organisers Meredith Walker and Helen Cooke said Aboriginal Australians of our First Nations were not actively involved in the early research and excavations in Australia, but now Traditional Owners are encouraged to be involved in all aspects of fieldwork on Indigenous sites, more engaged in researching their community and completing degrees in archaeology.
“Our keynote speaker for this event, Dave Johnston is a trailblazer in this field being the first Indigenous Australian to gain a degree in archaeology and having worked on more than 2,000 heritage projects across eastern Australia,” said Ms Cooke.
“He is recognised as a world leader in the field of Australian Indigenous archaeology, has been instrumental in the development of the Australian Government’s guidelines for Indigenous heritage and has developed a code of ethics for the World Archaeological Congress.”
The 'Our Shared History' seminar: Archaeology – Adding to Australia’s First Nation’s Stories will be held on:
Thursday, 2 August - 9.00 am to 2.30 pm
Secondary Lecture Theatre
Matthew Finders Anglican College
1-47 Stringybark Road, Buderim

Fiona Falzon is heading for Auckland next week to represent our country in Karate's Oceania Cup, fresh from taking Gold in the Australian Open Karate Kumite Championships in Sydney earlier this month. Inspired by her 5 year old when he took up Karate, and then the story of a black-belt Grandma in the local paper 9 years ago, Fiona began a journey she says was "akin to climbing Everest". She began competing only 5 years ago and has won National titles in 2014 and 2016 in the Veteran's category (45 plus). Fiona says it has been life-changing, saying "The overall technique opens us up to insights into our life, producing inner strength through balance and peace - we don't need to lash out".
Fiona was special guest on NOOSA FM's Monday Magazine on the 30th May (podcast below) and spoke about the art and craft of Karate and the broader, holistic affect it can have on the body, mind and spirit.
For those who may be interested in learning more about Karate, Fiona suggests trying a couple of classes at different dojos (i.e. a room or hall in which Karate and other martial arts are practiced), as all are a little different, and it's best to choose based on how you are feeling while in each dojo.
