May 1st, 2021, marks the 15th edition of International Female Ride Day. The event was created by Motoress in 2007 not only to celebrate women who ride but to inspire and encourage more women to join the movement and get behind the handlebars.  


Motoress founder and IFRD organizer Vicki Gray explains that this year’s theme of #FocusFemaleForward “adds emphasis to the women’s ride day goals, which, among many, aim to dispel preconceived stereotypes in motorcycling while encouraging others to take up the activity.”


To partake in the event, all participants have to do is get on their bike and hit the road. This year, most riders will participate solo in accordance with local guidelines and safety protocols regarding Covid-19. The ride is open to all riders no matter their skill level or the type of motorcycle they have.


An online photo contest also allows riders to share pictures of their ride with the IFRD community for a chance to win several prizes, including riding boots and jackets.

Happy IFRD, enjoy the ride, and be safe!
