International Female Ride Day© is a global campaign for women motorcyclists who own, ride or have access to a motorcycle or scooter. The day invites women to “JUST RIDE”.
By participating and riding on this globally synchronized united day, women underline and demonstrate their passion, ability and enthusiasm for motorcycling. Women participants are role models contribute to the activity by building awareness of female motorcyclists. This worldwide, synchronized unified presence further demonstrates through every cultures and in one language the fun and enjoyment females of all diversities share in this wonderful activity, in all its forms/variations - of motorcycling!
The event occurs on the first Friday of May each year. Women participate by simply being on their motorcycle to "JUST RIDE" ...
… to work
… to meet a friend(s)
… to a fitness class
… to their local motorcycle retailer
… to a country road
… to take an off road or track day course
… to a shopping mall
… to your friends charity event and so on.
The day invites women to be on a motorcycle. It is not an organised ride nor is it a ride for charity. There has no directive so to speak, other then simply getting on your motorcycle, scooter or trike. It's a simple action designed not to dilute the events core message- of highlighting women motorcyclists!
It isn't surprising however, that numerous women's groups are organized to JUST RIDE on the first Friday in May. Clubs, groups, organisations or solo- women incorporate their own purpose or theme. Often these events include a fund raiser of their local preferred charity or simply solidify camaraderie!
This campaign was introduced by Vicki Gray director of MOTORESS to ensure the growth of women in motorcycling. The only request is that women get out on their motorcycle, scooter or trike and "JUST RIDE"!
Motorcycles of all brands, types, styles, capacities and forms. Motorcycles for street, off road/dirt or scooter, sport, duo-purpose, cruiser, touring, trike or ATV.
This is one day devoted to women riders! Women of all ages and all experience levels demonstrating their personal passion, pleasure and camaraderie, unified in a globally synchronized action - together in the activity of motorcycling- around the world!
