This is an event that occurs every year and there are a lot of things that you should know about the event.
Women riders from literally all over the world are going to unite to create an incredible team up for women’s rights, motorcycles and so much more. If you haven’t experienced this day of unity, then make your plans to unite with others in your community and join others that are going to be riding and celebrating this May.
If this is the first time you’ve heard of International Female Ride Day, then you may have a few questions about it. With that in mind, consider the following 5 things that you should know about this incredible day of unity, motorcycles, and sisterhood.
Understanding International Female Ride Day
The first thing you should know is simple enough, you should know what the day is, and why it has been growing for so long. This is a day that was started by the founder of the website Motoress.com. The effort was to start getting female motorcycle enthusiasts together for a great ride. It started with the first Friday of every May for the event, and it has been garnering a great deal of fanfare, and success since the first one started. Since the first ride, women from all over have been utilizing partnerships with social media, dealerships, and clubs to engage the community of riders from around the world.
The Goal of The Day
The goal of International Female Ride Day is to help unite women through riding motorcycles. It is meant to inspire other women to ride, and to love motorcycles. Many participants also use the platform to raise awareness for charities, and ride for one another, to commemorate sisterhood, and so much more. The population of female riders keeps growing and this day of recognition is meant to inspire even more.
Many Ways To Participate
There are a lot of different ways that you can participate in this event. There’s no cost, there’s nothing crazy that needs to be done to unite. Women of all ages can participate by simply riding a motorcycle in the community that they live in. Aside from just riding, women can show support by sharing their activities, friendships formed, and event details via social media pages. Sharing the main graphics, websites and information about the big day is a great way to spread the word.
To help unify the day, people are asked to use the right hashtags on social media. For this year’s events, it’s imperative to work with #internationalfemalerideday and #ifrd. These are the proper hashtags to help unify on the day, and to help promote the major event this year.
Riding Solo and Group Options Are Grand
Women sometimes feel left out because they don’t have a large group to ride with, and some may live in areas where they are alone in riding. That’s ok. This event is for you, because it doesn’t matter if you’re with a group or you’re riding solo. Whether you have friends to ride with or you’re a lone rider in your area, jump on your motorcycle and ride alongside the many women that are going to be riding with you in their areas. You can join a group virtually, or you can use social media to find a gathering, or simply ride alone. There’s no “wrong” way to do this, as long as you decide to jump in and ride with unity in mind. If you’re a woman and have a motorcycle, ride alongside the many women that will be a part of this incredible event. There’s no rules other than being a woman and riding a motorcycle!
Promoting International Female Ride Day
For those that want to promote the day and get more people involved, there are things that you can do. You can support the day through social media using the proper tags, #internationalfemalerideday and #ifrd whenever you mention the day. You can also send people to the official Motoress website, and their shopping pages where you can purchase IFRD logo options and help support the day (http://www.cafepress.com/internationalfemalerideday).
No matter where you are, no matter how long you’ve been riding, you can jump in on this incredible event. This is an event for women all over the world, and it’s truly a grand thing to move forward with.
