Central VA's 3rd International Female Ride Day, 2012!

Active & Adventurous - Motorcycle Mania

international_female_ride_day_2012_richva2Central Virginia’s 3rd year in the international ride recruited over 70 riders and participants in Richmond Va., on May 4th. Police assisted motorcyclists out of The Showplace’s parking lot onto Mechanicsville Turnpike’s weekday traffic. Witnesses to the event are reported to have experienced an overwhelming sense of pride as women rode through congested streets to take part in the world’s largest single day ride. “I traveled with the bikes in my car and kept all four windows down to feel the wind . . . to show solidarity,” said Venus - one of the event’s supporters. Aside from admiring drivers like Venus, the women were escorted by an entourage of male motorcyclists who trailed directly behind the ladies; chivalry is alive and well in the biker community. A Richmond gathering that started with less than 10 riders is growing each year and excitement continues to build over the area’s annual team spirited journey from Richmond to the ride's destination at Lowery's Seafood Restaurant in Tappahannock, Va. Plans are currently being made for International Female Ride Day 2013. The group’s supporters welcome more sponsors and riders.

My family of riders and I had a blast!  See you on the road the first Friday in May for IFRD 2013!
