Can-Am Calls On Women To Hit The Streets And “Just Ride” For The 17th Edition Of The International Female Ride Day

By Posted on

For the fourth consecutive year Can-Am is a proud supporter of this worldwide event

On Saturday, May 6, global powersports leader, BRP, and its Can-Am team will proudly take the streets alongside female riders in more than 75 communities around the world as part of the 17th annual International Female Ride Day® (IFRD). From the U.S. and Canada, to Europe, Asia, and Latin America, Can-Am employees, ambassadors, dealers, and 3-wheel vehicle owners will ride together and celebrate the empowerment of women riders and their positive contributions to the powersports industry.

This marks the fourth consecutive year that Can-Am will be an official supporter and partner of IFRD and its global call to action. The IFRD partnership goes hand in hand with the Can-Am brand and its highly successful Women of On-Road program (WOOR) that prides itself on breaking down barriers, encouraging new riders and opening the road to all. Thanks in large part to WOOR, Can-Am now sees nearly 35 percent of owners being women, significantly outpacing the industry average of 21 percent.

“We are very proud to be a corporate sponsor of the International Female Ride Day once again,” said Martin Ethier, Director, Global Marketing, Can-Am 3-Wheel at BRP. “This day is a celebration of women in powersports and those who choose to hit the open road and experience the thrill of the ride! We look forward to seeing all of the passionate riders from across the globe come together for this special day.”

This year for IFRD, fellow Canadian and IFRD founder, Vicki Gray, will be riding in Mexico City as a guest of the moto tourism and motorsport commission and celebrating IFRD in a huge way! Vicki continues to advocate for more women to enter the powersports arena and this year is no different.

“As the founder of the International Female Ride Day, I am thrilled to once again have Can-Am as a partner for this year’s celebration. Can-Am’s commitment to inclusivity and equality aligns perfectly with the IFRD mission to inspire more women to join the community of riders. Together, we can show the world that riding is a passion that transcends gender and encourage more women to discover the freedom and empowerment that comes from hitting the open road.”
