The International Female Ride Day falls on the first Saturday in May each year and is this Saturday May 2. The ride day has been gathering followers for over a decade. Founder and owner of IFRD is Vicky Gray. Here is an excerpt from their website Motoress.com.
“International Female Ride Day© (IFRD) the first Saturday in May, is a global day celebrating the cultural, social and active lifestyles of women who ride and enjoy motorcycling. The day also marks a call to action for fast-tracking gender equality, awareness, and respect for women in motorcycling or motorsport.
IFRD is created and owned by Vicki Gray. It is exclusively driven by Ms. Gray through her business platform MOTORESS®, the online magazine for the woman rider and motorcycle enthusiast. Ms. Gray is an avid motorcyclist residing in Canada where MOTORESS® relocated to from Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
IFRD is all about riding in celebration, unity, and support – whatever that looks like globally at a local level. But one thing is for sure, International Female Ride Day© has been occurring for well over a decade and continues to grow its strength from ride to ride.
International Female Ride Day© promotes all women in motorcycling and encourages other women to take up the activity. The numbers of women motorcycle riders steadily increases, and certainly more so in recent decades (women’s social values have changed, advanced, etc.) with the prominence of the IFRD occurrence. IFRD underlines this growth and the numbers.”
Great concept Vicky! We’ll keep our riders reminded!
