IFRD 2012The latest MOTORESS press release went out this morning. With events and rides taking place in Australia, Canada, Dubai, England, Greece, India, Italy, Poland, Russia, the United states and more, this sixth installment of International Female Ride Day is the biggest yet.

International Female Ride DayInternational Female Ride day takes place the first Friday of May. It’s aim is to promote and highlight women riders across the world.

Brigitte Zufferey, the coordinator for The Commission for Women in Motorcycling at the Federation Internationale du Motocyclisme has said, “The Fédération Internationale du Motocyclisme (FIM) and it’s women’s commission is impressed by the amazing development of IFRD now throughout many countries in the world. It is uplifting and extremely motivating to see that more and more women are taking active part in all related motorcycling activities. The FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission is more determined than ever to bring its contribution to this event and wishes a great success to the 6th edition.”

In addition to a worldwide celebration, there is a Toronto based ride, ending with a wrap-up party at Studio Cycle Group in Toronto, hosted by KYMCO Canada.

I met with Vicki Gray of MOTORESS briefly earlier today. She’s well aware of the work she has ahead, and if anyone can pull it off, it’s her. Vicki continues to be an inspiration to both her huge international female following, and to male riders like yours truly. Keep it up Vicki! Have a great International Female Ride Day, ladies!
