Women’s Caribbean Motorcycle Club Makes Debut on International Female Ride Day
Listed here are our most commonly asked International Female Ride Day© FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions about the global campaign for women motorcycle and scooter riders.
International Female Ride Day© (IFRD) is a campaign for women motorcycle riders across all cultures of the sport, with the purpose of highlighting and profiling the many numbers of woman riders enjoying the activity.
Recently there has been a shift in the Caribbean island of St Lucia and the St. Lucian biker culture. Women are taking up motorcycle riding in record numbers. Now women are no longer interested in being just the pillion (passenger) but the actual rider.
This new found love by women in St. Lucia has fueled a group of female motorcycle riders to form/create a motorcycle riding club called “Sesame Street Riders & Friends” (SSR). This predominantly female motorcycle riding club is being launched on Saturday 7th May in tandem with International Female Ride Day.
Women all around the world will be observing and celebrating International Female Ride Day and the SSR motorcycle club will participate in this observance by having motorcycle parade.
Our motto is “Ride Safe! Ride Smart!” Our vision: “A phenomenal sisterhood of bikers, changing the face of motorcyclists one ride at a time” and we are on a mission to “revolutionize the public’s perception of riders, by promoting road safety and responsibility when operating motorcycles and other motor vehicles; to strengthen biking camaraderie; to be positive role models in our community; and to have fun doing it all”, stated SSR representative.
We are welcoming all but, specifically women, to join us on this monumental day.
The club is encouraging licensed female motorcycle riders to join them on this day Saturday May 7th 2016 from 8:00AM.
The parade will commence after all safety inspections and guidelines have been announced. The procession will go through Castries city circuit with final destination being Rodney Bay strip.
We are asking that riders be dressed in long jeans and long sleeve shirts or jacket helmet along with other relevant safety motorcycle gear.
