It’s this time of the year when women all over the world are preparing for the global occasion that has women riders everywhere getting out on their motorcycle on this special day. And in 2010 more countries are expected to join in and more women are setting up activities for their fellow female riders.
For this 4th annual event, Vicki Gray – the founder of MOTORESS, the group that started International Female Ride Day – says she’s noticed an increase in the recognition of the Female Ride Day among the motorcycle industry around the world. “The popularity of this event comes from the concept and the fact that it invites women to ride no matter what brand, style or type of motorcycle.
This gives the industry an opportunity to share its support and get involved. As before, participants will be able to upload and send in their picture to MOTORESS or post them on the Facebook group and event page. A free souvenir will be sent to the first 100 photos received. Participants can also go the MOTORESS Facebook group or event page to post their plans for May 7 while networking with others. In addition, women will be able to order the special 2010 Female Ride Day T-shirt as a souvenir online. This year the T-shirt will be in a natural bamboo fabric, the latest trend in eco-friendly fabrics. Sport bike, cruiser, scooter, off-road, touring or competition, regardless of what type or style of motorcycle, International Female Ride Day makes one simple request of women — just ride.
