The eleventh annual International Female Ride Day (IFRD) is on 6 May. The IFRD is a campaign for women motorcycle riders across all cultures of the sport, with the purpose of highlighting and profiling the many numbers of woman riders enjoying the activity. It is an all brands, all forms, and all styles worldwide ride. All riders are invited to take part and join in on the universal ride day action of “JUST RIDE!”

The mission of International Female Ride Day Ride Day is to build awareness of women motorcycle riders and promoting those who enjoy the sport across all the world’s cultures and communities. This, all the while encouraging other women who have not yet explored motorcycling, to take up the activity. Furthermore as each woman participating on IFRD is a role model for motorcycling, IFRD aims to defy preconceived [gender limiting] notions of motorcycling for women and of women motorcyclists.  Women participating on IFRD demonstrate the formless, ageless, diverse numbers of women who have mastered the skills.

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.

Meanwhile, the Revved-Up Women Texas Motorcycle Expo is taking place 28-30 April in San Antonio, Texas. Waiting for participants there are three days of workshops by nationally known motorcyclists, rider training, great food, music, marketplace and everything bike related. Guys and families are welcome, too.

“It’s a combination rally, conference and tradeshow for experienced and new riders,” said Teresa Kelly, spokesperson for the inaugural family-friendly event. “It’s also unique in that it will offer women and girls who have never ridden a bike before the chance to experience this amazing sport safely and enjoyably.”

Among the highlights will be two panel discussions among leading motorcycle media, industry executives and riders about whether brands are meeting the needs of women, and if not, how they might improve. Moderated by Genevieve Schmitt, editor and publisher of Women Riders Now and considered a leading voice in women’s motorcycling, the panel includes women executives from Polaris, Harley-Davidson, BMW, and motorcycle media.
