Indian Motorcycle is once again joining forces with International Female Ride Day (IFRD), a globally synchronised ride day celebrating women riders and their passion for riding. The 15th annual event returns on May 1 to six continents in over 120 countries. This year’s theme, #FocusFemaleForward, emphasises the goals of IFRD, including encouraging new women to ride while shining a light on the diverse participation of women already riding motorcycles.
Since its inception, the International Female Ride Day has shone a spotlight on women riders and the female powersports arena. Over the last decade, female ridership has increased significantly, and the momentum generated on this one day is needed to continue advancing the future of motorcycling and powersports for women.
Participation in IFRD is easy – “Just Ride!”. Women around the world can celebrate the day by simply getting outside to ride their motorcycle or powersports vehicle, no matter the distance or whether riding solo or with friends and family. Riders can also take part in the digital celebration by sharing photos of their rides on social media using the hashtags #IFRD2021, #FocusFemaleForward and #InternationalFemaleRideDay.
No matter how or where you ride, Indian Motorcycle and IFRD encourage safe riding practices. Wear appropriate safety gear, perform pre-ride vehicle checks and follow local and CDC guidelines for social distancing to protect against the spread of COVID-19. Riders participating in IFRD can proudly wear IFRD branded apparel and show off the official IFRD logo on their social handles or their vehicles.
