What is International Female Ride Day? International Female Ride Day® (IFRD) goals and missions are of building awareness of women motorcycle riders and promoting those who enjoy the sport – across worldwide cultures and communities. The action of “JUST RIDE!” further intends to encourage other women who have not yet explored motorcycling, to take up the activity. Each woman participating on IFRD first-handedly is a role model for motorcycling and powersports. IFRD equally aims to defy preconceived [gender limiting] notions of motorcycling for women and of women motorcyclists – promoting diversity and gender parity. Women participating on IFRD demonstrate the formless, ageless, varied numbers of women who have mastered the skill of motorcycling.
