On Saturday May 7th, the world will feel a different type of thunder, as women from all over the world will be firing up their engines and riding their motorcycles around their communities.
International Female Ride Day 2016 is a day for women and their passion for motorcycling, no matter the make of bike or the experience of riding, to join on a global platform, grow the female riding community.
Last year was our first annual International Female Ride Day©, we had 30 women brave the cold temperatures, rain and eventually snow!! Everyone was troopers to say the least!! Despite the weather the women riders did “JUST RIDE!”© there was many ladies that didn’t know each other and some that ride together all the time. What was great to see by the time we left the warm fire place at Bearberry Saloon, a bigger circle of female riders was made.

How did IFRD start?
Quoted from Inside Motorcycles Magazine:
A decade ago women riders in countries such as Hungary, South Africa, or Australia to name but a few, were nameless. Through the calling IFRD has made to the planet’s female riders and to the role of every woman enjoying motorcycling, an extensive network has been revealed of motorcycle aficionados. Clubs, and friendships have formed – history has been made (2008 saw the first ever group of women riders ride through the streets of Tel Aviv) all as a result of this phenomenal supported action lead by women who ride.
IFRD continues to be a prime influencer to the global motorsport industry. Its popularity underlines the strength and importance of this market segment. IFRD has grown to be a platform through which the industry continues to speak and reach out to women riders.
IFRD makes one request of women – “JUST RIDE!”© – get on your bikes, be out there and be visible. The decennial celebrations will set another record of the event’s prominence as thousands of rider participants join in unity around the world. It continues to ride forward women’s involvement in motorsport. A “movement” as it’s often referred to – which has become not only unstoppable, but a must in every woman rider’s agenda.
