Using International Female Ride Day© Graphics, Logos & Icons
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.
Women joining in and riding on International Female Ride Day© demonstrate their passion, ability, enthusiasm and involvement in motorcycling on all levels. All brands participate across all forms of motorcycling: road, track, dirt even three-wheelers, side-cars and scooters.
Over the years we (Founder Vicki Gray and MOTORESS) have invested extensive hours and funds to design and produce an image we and all women motorcycle enthusiasts can not only be universally proud of – but enjoy. This International Female Ride Day© (IFRD) logo image has become an iconic identifier for women riders. It’s for use by all. Of course to ensure its identity around the world it is important to keep the image unified. Therefore it is vital that it doesn’t become altered or changed through use. Though we do produce it in various languages, this of course is the one permissible, and logical alteration we support.

This certainly puts a damper on the goals we aim for.

IFRD Logo Use T-Shirts • Souvenirs • Flags • Patches All Require a Licensing Authorization!!
We do not provide IFRD logo file formats such as vector, ai, eps, for printing on t-shirts, clothing, key-chains, stickers, patches etc. We own the design and artwork of IFRD. In fact Vicki Gray Founder of IFRD is the artist and designed the logo which came to life in 2006 . The IFRD iconic image has evolved to what you see today. This is her artwork and she is the artist of license.
IFRD T-Shirts for Your Group Event or Ride
If you are looking to print the IFRD logo on t-shirts, clothing, hats, or even create a patch and seek to receive a file format to do so, we officially will not provide such. It is forbidden to take our artwork and do such – except with our written approval and your signing of our artist licensing agreement.
This arrangement accompanies a licensing fee and/or a royalty fee depending on your project and items.
We’re happy to discuss with you. Please send an inquiry.
Why An IFRD Artist Licensing Agreement?
The official merchandise we offer each year, whether in our own shop or via third-party – generates some revenue to help us cover the costs which are mostly paid for by Vicki Gray’s personal financing. We trust you won’t mind helping out and assisting us to sustain, in some small way, our efforts. Just for a moment, imagine how much effort you would be required to give, if you were running a word-wide campaign – namely for free? But let’s be real, any revenue generated by the IFRD t-shirt sales in no means covers any part of our investment over the past years nor the global efforts to sustain works on IFRD. Making t-shirts available pays for a few of our online costs but most importantly, this famous t-shirt gives us the biggest smiles when we see you proudly wearing an authentic IFRD shirt. It’s a collectible, a souvenir and something to be proud of.
A Decade of Devoted IFRD FREE LABOUR – Minutes, Hours, Days, Months
So you might now understand that for over a decade we continue to do our best to keep up to the WORLD-WIDE demands of clubs, groups, dealerships, and riders, our investment is short of any rewards in the sense of woman-power time and costs. Selling t-shirts is but one tiny form of assistance.
Within this same note, Vicki Gray created and ventured into this mission to result in change for women motorcycle riders.
IFRD achieved this and continues to do so.
In fact, the reason the iconic t-shirt came about is due to women requesting it. It has now become a sought after, special item to wear on every IFRD and a keepsake memento valued to every woman rider. And like you we love it too!
We appreciate your respect in working with us, with Vicki Gray, and your equally respectful contributions to this incredibly successful global program for you, for women motorcycle riders – the world over.
