The event occurs this Friday, May 3. Women participate by simply being on their motorcycle to "JUST RIDE" ...
… to work
… to meet a friend(s)
… to a fitness class
… to their local motorcycle retailer
… to a country road
… to take an off road or track day course
… to a shopping mall
… to your friends charity event and so on.
The day invites women to be on a motorcycle. It is not an organized ride nor is it a ride for charity. There is no directive so to speak, other then simply getting on your motorcycle, scooter or trike. It's a simple action designed not to dilute the event's core message - highlighting women motorcyclists!
It isn't surprising, however, that numerous women's groups are organized to JUST RIDE on the first Friday in May. Clubs, groups, organizations or solo women incorporate their own purpose or theme. Often these events include a fundraiser of their local preferred charity or to simply solidify camaraderie.
This campaign was introduced by Vicki Gray, director of MOTORESS, to ensure the growth of women in motorcycling. The only request is that women get out on their motorcycle, scooter or trike and "JUST RIDE"!
Motorcycles of all brands, types, styles, capacities and forms. Motorcycles for street, off road/dirt or scooter, sport, duo-purpose, cruiser, touring, trike or ATV are approved.
This is one day devoted to women riders! Women of all ages and all experience levels demonstrating their personal passion, pleasure and camaraderie, unified in a globally synchronized action - together in the activity of motorcycling - around the world!
