International Female Ride Day® (IFRD) is celebrated annually worldwide on the first Saturday of May. The day celebrates women motorcycle riders and is not country, group or organizationally specific – it is a globally synchronized “JUST RIDE!”© day, for women. Vicki Gray created IFRD for all women individually, in groups and collectively – everywhere!
Women make International Female Ride Day® their day to “JUST RIDE!”© doing what they can to promote and highlight women riders while making a positive difference for women in motorcycling and powersports everywhere.
Every woman riding on IFRD is a role model for the diverse, unique and common passion women share for motorcycling and powersports.
The day has occurred for well over a decade and a half, with the first IFRD actions in 2007. It is an all brands and all styles motorcycling happening, and extends across all borders and cultures the world over.
Marked annually on the first Saturday in May, International Female Ride Day (IFRD) is one of the most important ride days of the year to:
- Highlight the number of women who ride.
- Encourage other women to take up the activity.
- Raise awareness about women’s equality in motorsports.
- Celebrate women’s advancements in motorsports and powersports.
- Ride for accelerated gender parity.
