May 6 is International Female Ride Day

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

On Friday May 6, women around the world will get on their motorcycles and ride in celebration of International Female Ride Day. Now in its fifth year, International Female Ride Day was founded by Vicki Gray of Motoress, a Toronto based organization that, “Connects Women with Motorcycling” through its global online community and magazine. The day is designed to bring awareness to the fact that female riders comprise an escalating segment of the motorcycling community, who Gray claims, ride just as much as their male counterparts.

“We ride on a Friday to emphasize the fact that motorcycling for women is not only a hobby but something women incorporate into their every day lives. Women ride to work, to school or to run errands, such as I do on my scooter in the city. It’s a reality in a woman’s life, and this day simply accentuates it. Women enthusiastically prepare to ride and unite around the world on this synchronized day, and if you look at the feedback by way of internet, it’s truly phenomenal!” exclaims Gray.

You’ll find more information on International Female Ride Day at the Motoress website or the event’s Facebook page.
