International Female Ride Day Defined


International Female Ride Day© is a global campaign for women motorcyclists who own, ride, or have access to a motorcycle or scooter. The globally synchronized day invites around the world to simultaneously –  “JUST RIDE”.

By participating and riding on International Female Ride Day- this once a year globally united day, women underline and demonstrate their passion, ability and enthusiasm for motorcycling. Each women participant is a role model contributing to the activity by building awareness of female motorcyclists. This worldwide unified presence further demonstrates across all cultures , the fun and enjoyment women from all diversities share in this wonderful activity of motorcycling!

The event occurs on the first Saturday (formerly 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 a 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 per se. There is no directive other then to getting out there, on your motorcycle, scooter or trike. It’s a simple action designed not to dilute the ride day’s core message- of highlighting women motorcyclists.

It isn’t surprising however, that numerous organized activities occur. Clubs, groups, organisations or solo- women incorporate their own purpose or theme. Often these events include a locally preferred charity or quite simply, the solidarity of 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 are included. It’s an all brands, all forms, all ages event. Motorcycles for street, off road/dirt or scooter, sport, duo-purpose, cruiser, touring, trike are invited to join in.

This is one day devoted to women riders! Women of all ages, of all experience levels demonstrating their personal passion, pleasure and camaraderie through  motorcycling.
