Bikers up and down the UK, including astronaut Tim Peake, put on their finest clothing on Sunday to raise money for men’s health.
More than 50 cities took part in the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride as motorbike enthusiasts rode vintage and classically styled bikes in places such as London, Birmingham, Cardiff and Edinburgh.

The event aims to raise awareness of suicide and prostate cancer among men, with funds raised on behalf of men’s health charity Movember, which aims to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by 2030.
Waistcoats, patterned helmets, jackets and vintage goggles were all on show as well as the occasional well-maintained beard.
Mr Peake was one of those who took part, describing the money raised as “vital funds”.
