This is the world’s largest and only women motorcycle rider event which is also synchronized across all borders, all countries – worldwide!

Women motorcyclists are free to participate and enjoy the day in any manner they choose/prefer. It is their choice to determine how the mission of “JUST RIDE!” will be translated to their personal action of motorcycling.  This welcomes women riders at all levels of experience, of varying ages, and styles of riding to take part in the task of unifying women riders around the world – through motorcycling.

International Female Ride Day©  shines a spotlight on women motorcyclists while asking each woman rider to be a role model for motorcycling on this one global day. This is achieved by the single unified IFRD action of “JUST RIDE©”.  It’s a day for and of women motorcycle, scooter, and trike riders everywhere. A day emphasizing the many numbers of female’s who ride motorcycles; supporting their diversities, agelessness, limitless abilities and the enjoyment women embrace in the activity of motorcycling.

The complete image emphasizes the broadness of this campaign with the globe pictured in the design. Her open face helmet to make sure her face is visibly female. You’ll also notice her face is tilted up; chin high. Searching the horizon an ever open-mindedness and forward thinking – ever seeking forward.

To start this off it is important to know that the only activity imperative to being part of IFRD is to JUST RIDE. That has been the slogan, the credo which sits at the soul of IFRD, created by expert motorcyclist and woman rider advocate, Vicki Gray. It means, get out there show your beautiful self on a dirt bike, a cruiser, a sport bike, trike or scooter while riding in synchronicity with women the world over.

We include the various forms of motorcycles you’ll see included as small silhouettes within the image. This emphasizes the fact that International Female Ride Day© is an inclusive event and for all motorcycle types.  All manufacturers, all styles, all sizes and all forms are invited to join in and JUST RIDE!

In addition to joining in with women around the world, remember that it is you, the role model inspiring other women, on IFRD. You in your own unique way inspire others and set an example of the diversity, the fun, and the penchant women share through this activity – motorcycling.

Does the “International Female Ride Day” woman depicted in our logo have a name? Yes – we’ve named her after you! kiss

Celebrate the social, economic, cultural and motorsport achievements of women riders; visibility and awareness help drive positive change for women, no matter the activity.

Declare with passion how you, as an person or organization help progress motorcycling for women- because purposeful action can accelerate gender parity and alter perception; preconceived judgements or notions.
