Celebrating women riders worldwide.

On Saturday, May 4, 2024, women riders from across the globe will unite to celebrate the 18th annual International Female Ride Day (IFRD), an event synchronized around the world to honor and highlight female riders in both motorsports and powersports. With the theme for this year being #IFRDEveryWoman, the globally recognized day will again highlight the diversity, strength and camaraderie of women riders everywhere while advancing gender parity in motorsports.

IFRD is all about women riders celebrating their love of riding motorcycles and enjoying powersports. The event emphasizes the numbers of women who are passionate about these activities and encourages other women to take up the sport. Women riders in over 100 countries are planning to join in and participate in rides, events and activities that showcase their devotion and dedication. The day promises to be an exhilarating celebration of women riders, whether you’re an experienced rider or new to the scene. 

Since its inception in 2007, IFRD has become a cherished tradition each first Saturday in May. Synchronized rides take place in cities and towns everywhere, showcasing the passion and dedication of women riders from all walks of life. From Australia to Africa, Europe to the Americas, participants come together to celebrate and represent their shared love of powersports and the freedom of the activity. 

IFRD stands out for its steadfast dedication solely to women riders. Serving as a unified, global platform, IFRD empowers female riders to proudly display their varied motorsport passions, striving to dismantle barriers and confront stereotypes within the industry. From exhilarating group rides to empowering solo adventures and engaging community events, participants not only showcase their unwavering commitment to the activity but also serve as beacons of inspiration for the next generation of women riders.

From bustling city streets to scenic country roads, women riders of all backgrounds will come together on May 4 to celebrate their shared love of powersports. Social media will buzz with excitement as participants document their journeys using the IFRD hashtags amplifying the voices of women who ride.

“International Female Ride Day is more than just a day to ride; it’s a movement dedicated to advancing women’s presence in motorcycling, motorsports and powersports engaging women to pursue their passion with confidence,” said Vicki Gray, founder of IFRD. “This year’s theme, #IFRDEveryWoman, underscores the commitment to inclusivity and diversity within the powersports community. Women riders everywhere are invited to join in celebrating with the renowned IFRD call to action: Just Ride!”

As the anticipation builds for International Female Ride Day 2024, organizers are encouraging women riders everywhere to mark their calendars, spread the word and gear up for an unforgettable day of celebration, unity and sisterhood.
