Women Riders Prepare for 16th Edition International Female Ride Day

On May 7, the ride revs up to take over global roads, tracks and trails with “Just Ride!” synchronized action.

On Saturday, May 7, women riders will take to their motorcycles and powersports vehicles to “Just Ride!” for the 16th International Female Ride Day (IFRD). Participants in over 120 countries on six continents will join in on the globally synchronized women’s ride day, which highlights female motorcycle riders and powersporters across all disciplines of the activity.

Since the first IFRD in 2007, the yearly ride day connects women globally and makes normal and known the diverse numbers of women enjoying motorsport and powersports activities. The synchronized action drives forward the importance of women being well-represented across all disciplines of motorsports and throughout the powersports industry. IFRD also seeks to inspire other women who have not yet explored motorcycling or other forms of powersports to learn to ride and obtain their licenses.

“We have all seen the benefits of women’s inclusion in motorcycling — socially, economically and politically. IFRD has continually offered an environment that fosters presence and accelerates kinship. Enabling and empowering women through motorcycling and as witnessed every IFRD remains essential to what matters for women, going forward,” said Vicki Gray, founder.

The theme, “Focus, female, forward” and its #focusfemaleforward hashtag introduced in 2021 will be carried forward for the 16th edition. The theme runs parallel with the IFRD call to action: “Just Ride!” “Focus, female, forward” emphasizes female ride day goals with the underlined aim of bringing women to the forefront in all related activities.
