17th Edition International Female Ride Day on May 6

Unified action fuses common passion with women rider enthusiasts for yearly synchronized action.

Women motorcycle, motorsport and powersports riders are preparing for an incredible day of camaraderie in one synchronized action for the 17th edition of International Female Ride Day (IFRD). Saturday, May 6, the global “just ride” day, celebrates the spirit of woman riders and spotlights women who ride. 

IFRD is an inspiring movement created to bring together women riders from all walks of life to celebrate and boost female equity and shared solidarity among women in motorsport, motorcycling and powersports. The IFRD platform highlights and promotes its participants who equally enjoy connecting with other like-minded individuals. Whether solo or in groups, structured events or weekend-long celebrations, IFRD takes place in 120 countries around the world.

The IFRD call to action “just ride” encourages female motorcyclists to get out there and be visible. By taking part, women demonstrate first-hand the vast numbers of women who ride while breaking down stereotypes or preconceived definitions of female riders. IFRD provides an opportunity for women of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to come together and celebrate their unified passions.

“Riding a motorcycle or a powersports vehicle is an exhilarating experience that can bring out your best self. IFRD gives woman riders a platform for recognition, support and acknowledgement. I hope together we continue to create an inclusive community that celebrates female rider enthusiasts from all walks of life and encourages more women to get involved in the activity — to enjoy the experience without apprehension or judgement,” stated Vicki Gray, founder.

The IFRD sidebar theme, “Focus-Female-Forward,” first introduced in 2021, continues to be a focal point for 2023. This initiative aims to keep women at the forefront while striving to promote female equity in all aspects of the motorcycling and motorsport industry.

This IFRD, show your support and get ready for an incredible journey of friendship, passion and accomplishment for the 17th edition.
