Women are not to be excluded but rather united in motorcycling.
Our 2017 ride departed at 10:30 a.m. where we headed to Glenavon to meet up with with the L.O.H. and H.O.G. and Lady Riders of Yorkton. Over 25 Ladies and their supporters came together to celebrate this great day. We had a picnic and everyone chipped in $5 for the food which we turned around and donated to the Montmarte Seniors Activity Fund (a total of $240). We followed that up with a beautiful (albeit windy!) ride to Katepwa for a break by the lake then a loop around the beautiful lakes of the Qu’Appelle Valley.
International Female Ride Day© shines a spotlight on women motorcyclists while asking each woman rider to be a role model for motorcycling on this one global day. This is achieved by the single unified IFRD action of “JUST RIDE©“.
International Female Ride Day Guiding Principles
- FREEDOM. Women motorcyclists are free to take part and enjoy the day in any way they choose/prefer. It is their choice to determine how the mission of “JUST RIDE!” will be translated to their personal action of motorcycling. This welcomes women riders at all levels of experience, of varying ages, and styles of riding to take part in the task of unifying women riders around the world – through motorcycling.
- BRANDLESS. IFRD is the property of MOTORESS™ however its “for use” campaign, dedicated to promoting women and motorcycling, is to be enjoyed by all. It will not be limited or exclude any woman motorcycle, scooter, trike enthusiast in any way. It is not to be taken over by any one motorcycle manufacturer brand, product or country. Women are not to be excluded but rather united in motorcycling. The industry, individual rider groups or clubs are encouraged to participate.
- ONE FIXED DATE. IFRD now occurs on the first Saturday of May every year. This date is solid and fixed no matter the time zones (i.e. New Year’s Eve), culture or climate. The power of the global JUST RIDE! action succeeds due to this one day unified action. This day is not changeable. Any event occurring outside of the worldwide ride day occurrence is not IFRD.
- OPEN GOOD WILL. International Female Ride Day© will not impose on any rider, group or club’s charity purpose. IFRD may sometimes select a localized charity to partner with but will not enforce a global action of such. This allows participants if they so wish to create their own cause or merge activities around their current choice charity organisations.
IFRD occurs on the first Saturday in May, every year. JUST RIDE!
