International Female Ride Day is revving up to take over the globe through female riders of all types.
On Saturday 7 May, women riders will take to their motorcycles and powersports vehicles to “Just Ride!” for the 16th International Female Ride Day® (IFRD). Participants in over 120 countries, and six continents will join in on the globally synchronized women’s ride day which highlights female motorcycle riders and powersports across all disciplines of the activity.
IFRD started in 2007, once a year women connect globally through the passion of riding. IFRD hopes to expend the demographic of women riders and inspire others to get into the sport.
“We have all seen the benefits of women’s inclusion in motorcycling – socially, economically, and politically. IFRD has continually offered an environment that fosters presence and accelerates kinship. Enabling and empowering women through motorcycling and as witnessed every IFRD – remains essential to what matters for women, going forward.”, says Vicki Gray, Founder.
The theme “Focus, female, forward.” and its #focusfemaleforward hashtag introduced in 2021 is carried forward for the 16th edition. The theme runs parallel with the IFRD call to action- “Just Ride!” Focus, female, forward emphasises female ride day goals, with the underlined aim of bringing women to the forefront in all related activities.
