On this 6th International Female Ride Day the theme is “JUST RIDE!” and women motorcyclists everywhere have planned events, group rides, or are simply riding to work or to do whatever they do. The purpose for this unified day is to bring awareness of the numbers of women who ride, to unify women in motorcycling, no matter what they ride, and to encourage other women to adopt the sport. Women from around the world participate in this globally-synchronized day, including women in Australia, Greece, Russia, India, Hungary, and beyond. The event was founded by Vicki Gray of*MOTORESS, an online women's motorcycle magazine devoted to women motorcycle enthusiasts of all ages and styles.

A group ride has also been scheduled through some of the best roads in Marin County from 1pm-4pm. Ride details and location can be found on the Facebook Events page.

Come meet other women riders, show off your bike, or find out how you might learn to ride. The event is organized by Joanne Donn, founder of*GearChic, Aleks Grippo, co-owner of*Moto Shop, and Carla King, author of the*Motorcycle Misadventures*series of books and online dispatches from the road.
