Ultra soft, breathable wicking fabric is used in this super comfy headband. NO TIE in the back to hurt in your helmet so you can wear it under all shape helmets without a problem. They're nice and thin so don't make your helmet tight. Tapered in the back for a great fit and super stretchy. I usually get hot in headbands and bandanas but I can wear this one all day without being sweaty or getting a headache. Machine Wash Cold For matching t-shirts, see below
What Is International Female Ride Day?
International Female Ride Day® (IFRD) occurring on the first Saturday in May, is a global day celebrating the cultural, social and active lifestyles of women who ride and enjoy motorcycling and powersports.
The day also marks a call to action for fast-tracking gender equality, awareness, and respect for women in motorcycling or motorsport.
IFRD is created and owned by Vicki Gray. It is exclusively driven by Gray through her business platform MOTORESS®, the woman rider and motorcycle enthusiast online magazine and resource. Gray is an avid motorcyclist currently residing in Canada where MOTORESS® relocated to from Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
IFRD is all about riding in celebration, unity, and support – whatever that looks like globally at a local level. But one thing is for sure, IFRD has been occurring for nearly two decades and continues to grow in strength and power, from ride to ride.
IFRD promotes all women (those who identify as a woman) in motorcycling and encourages other women to take up the activity. The numbers of women motorcycle riders steadily increases, and certainly more so in recent decades (women’s social values have changed, advanced, etc.) with the prominence of the IFRD occurrence. IFRD underlines this growth and the numbers.
"IFRD provides a platform for women motorcycle riders to bond with other women, to meet and find like-minded women who ride and develop friendships with which to enjoy and advance motorcycling!"
