Indian Motorcycle recently announced that it has partnered with International Female Ride Day (IFRD), a globally synchronised ride day celebrating women riders and their passion for riding. IFRD will take place Saturday, August 22, on six continents in over 120 countries.
“I started IFRD to advance the awareness of women motorcycle riders and inspire women everywhere. Working with Indian Motorcycle encourages even more women to join the celebration of riding and become part of the movement,” said IFRD Founder Vicki Gray. “It is truly an experience like no other — exhilarating, liberating, and fulfilling. The female riding community is one of expanding camaraderie on the open road.”
“Just Ride!” is the only requirement to participate in IFRD. Motorcyclists around the world can celebrate the day by simply getting outside for a solo ride, riding as a passenger, or riding with friends and family. Riders are also encouraged to join Indian Motorcycle, and its network of female riders and ambassadors around the globe by celebrating digitally and sharing photos on social media using the hashtags #IFRD and #InternationalFemaleRideDay.
IFRD and the “Just Ride!” call to action were created in 2007 to focus on female motorcycle riders. Since then, women around the world have rallied behind the movement to celebrate and welcome the growing number of female riders. In addition to this, Indian Motorcycle and IFRD urges rides all over the world to 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.
