2 May 2007


This Friday is the first ever National Female Ride Day, an initiative of MOTORESS —something I’ve wanted to make happen for some years now. It’s going to take place every year on the first Friday of May, and will eventually be International Female Ride Day.
The response, the enthusiasm, the support from women motorcyclists throughout Canada and unpredictably, the United States has gone far beyond my expectations.
The day and I can say this based on the hundreds of emails and responses, is very well received --embraced by women riders everywhere. I consider myself fortunate as I get to view every email and comment--motivating.
Today in the postbox, I received a copy of the May/June 2007 Canadian publication called MOTORCYCLE MOJO. It was sent to me by editor Glenn Roberts to view a readers response in their ‘say what?’ section. I've scanned it and included the photo here--very nice.

Then, an associate of mine suggested I “GOOGLE” National Female Ride Day—and voila! The buzz that’s going on within forums, websites, blogs and the plans being put into place —excellent.
Even the website is busy with visitors, inquiries, viewings and today again hit over 1100 individual unique visitors—imagine outside your front door, 1100 people stand and in one click, enter your domain to look around every room. Now those numbers are ever greater!

So, Friday we ride, to work, to school, to meet friends—solo or in groups. National Female Ride Day brings all styles, forms, ages and brands together--that’s exactly the idea because at the end of the day, it’s quite simply about motorcycling and being female.
