The IFRD is celebrated across the world with weekend events, day events, off-road days, track days and national promotions in support of the first Saturday in May.

The 12th IFRD is expected to be celebrated across Canada, USA, Iceland, India, Australia, South Africa, Brazil, Caribbean, England, Germany, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Hungary, Russia, Japan, China, and Israel, among other countries.
The International Female Ride Day (IFRD) was created in 2007 by Vicki Gray, a lifetime motorcycling advocate, and road and race instructor with the purpose to profile and highlight the many diverse women enjoying the activity of motorcycling. \The IFRD promotes the action of “Just Ride” asking women across the world to be on their motorcycles, scooters and trikes on the first Saturday of May each year.
The IFRD is managed under Vicki Gray’s MOTORESS brand, which was founded in 2005. MOTORESS was founded in the Netherlands but is now headquartered in Toronto, Canada.
