Today Friday, May 6th, women riders around the world will get on their motorcycles or scooters to celebrate the fifth International Female Ride Day.This unique and globally synchronized event has no other counterpart in the world, and will bring together thousands of women motorcyclists from all over the planet. In 2011, the International Female Ride Day is about to precede prior year#8217;s attendance as more countries and women riders join the action.
International Female Ride Day (IFRD) whose simple theme asks women to #8220;just ride,#8221; is a designated day, aimed at bringing awareness to the existing and mounting numbers of women motorcyclists. It is the only event of its kind on the planet which has been bringing women riders together since 2007. #8220;International Female Ride Day is a unique event in the world. No other event is or has ever reached out to women from all parts of the world on just one global, synchronized day this is the real deal,#8221; says Vicki Gray, founder of the International Female Ride Day and MOTORESS, a women#8217;s online motorcycle community. #8220;The day#8217;s success is equally attributed to women riders of all ages, styles of riding and motorcycle brands who took this idea I presented to them five years ago and made it what it is, that is phenomenal!#8221;
This year as in year#8217;s past women rider groups in Russia, Germany and India will participate by riding on this day. Since the beginning, IFRD has attracted more and more women. #8220;Women know that they are participating in a unique event that has no relation whatsoever to the type of bike they are riding,#8221; says Vicki.
Since its introduction in 2007, International Female Ride Day has grown thanks to the support of the motorcycle industry and its prominent leaders, well-known female rider clubs, and international governing bodies such as Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM). In 2011 women riders throughout Canada, United States, Australia, England, The Netherlands, Greece, Italy, Poland, Israel, Hungary, Slovakia, India, Russia, Germany and more will contribute to the campaign in compelling numbers.
