Women, who participate in International Female Ride Day, demonstrate their passion, ability, enthusiasm, and involvement in motorcycling and motorsport. 


  • The day was born with the purpose of emphasizing the fact that many women ride and enjoy motorcycling at all levels. My initiative of implementing a day where female motorcyclists simply got on their motorcycles and rode would truly underline this fact.

How it All Began

The concept of IFRD was developed by Vicki Gray, owner, and founder of Motoress and motorcycling advocate. 

International Female Ride Day promotes women participating in motorcycling by providing a platform for female motorcycle riders to interact and develop relationships with a common interest. Each year this campaign continues to expand and is the only female motorcycle event in North America.

Celebrating International Female Ride Day?

International Female Ride Day invites women to just ride – there isn’t a specifically organized ride nor is it a ride for charity.  It is simply for awareness and empowering women. If you are celebrating International Female Ride Day make sure you share your experience on social media using the hashtags:

Introducing the New 2017 IFRD logo

This year a new International Female Ride Day logo was introduced. It emphasizes the broadness of this campaign with the globe pictured.  Also, the helmet is open to show that it is a face of a female. Women riders are encouraged to display the logo on social media to highlight the unity experienced across all cultures on this one day.

Every female rider helps raise awareness for women who ride motorcycles.  This worldwide unified presence further demonstrates that regardless of age, culture and diversities, women also enjoy motorcycling.
