Indian Motorcycle is once again partnering with International Female Ride Day, a globally recognized event that returns on May 1. The event is celebrated on six continents in over 120 countries.

This year’s theme encourages new women to ride while shining a light on the diverse participation of women already riding motorcycles, which is why the May issue of American Motorcyclist is fully devoted to telling stories of empowering female pioneers in the sport.  

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.

“It’s exciting to have the support of Indian Motorcycle, and team up to encourage even more women to join the movement,” said Vicki Gray, IFRD Founder. “This year, women around the world will be active, riding in celebration, unity and support of the female riding community more than ever before. The female riding community continues to expand every year, and this is our day to celebrate.”

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.
