May 7 Is International Female Ride Day – Just Ride!

May 7 Is International Female Ride Day – Just Ride! Let Us Know If You Participate

For the 16th year the first Saturday in May is dedicated to female riders.  From motoress.com: International Female Ride Day® “…celebrates women motorcycle riders and is not country, group or organizationally specific – it is a globally synchronized “JUST RIDE!”© day, for women. Vicki Gray created IFRD for all women individually, in groups and collectively – everywhere!

Women make International Female Ride Day® their day to “JUST RIDE!”© doing what they can to promote and highlight women riders while making a positive difference for women in motorcycling and powersports everywhere.

Every woman riding on IFRD is a role model for the diverse, unique and common passion women share for motorcycling and powersports.”

Gray makes it clear that every female is invited and encouraged to participate, “Women ride cruisers, sport bikes, scooters – on road, off-road but often don’t have time to ride. Our multifaceted roles as mothers, wives, sisters, caregivers, business owners etc. often leave personal pleasure like motorcycling last on the list.   My initiative to invite women to join together on one globally synchronized day to “JUST RIDE!”© seemed to me an action which would truly emphasize the numbers of women riders. Equally, every woman riding on IFRD becomes a motorcyclist role-model in her area; a representative of IFRD and its mission.”

If any of you celebrate IFRD by going for a ride – let us know about it at trailhead@nohvcc.org.  Send us pictures, write ups, or anything else you would like to share.
