Female Bikers - Tougher Than Irish Weather

The weather may have been terrible, but it didn't dampen the spirits of the 60 plus female bikers who travelled from all over Ireland, braving strong winds and heavy rain to participate in Ireland's first IFRD (International Female Ride Day).

Saturday, May 2nd 2015, the day finally arrived for the members of Ireland's Female motorcycle community to take part in International Female Ride Day for the first time. We were all excited to be taking part in this piece of Irish female biker history and we decorated ourselves and our bikes with flags and colours from our counties and countries.


As all too often in Ireland, the day brought with it heavy rain and strong winds, but we didn't let that dampen our spirits. Female bikers of all ages nationalities and creeds came from all over Ireland, braving the strong winds, pounding rain and difficult riding conditions to celebrate the day together.

Louise at IFRD 2015 AthloneOver 60 of us gathered and paraded through Athlone town centre on our bikes and trikes to Hodson Bay Hotel, where a boom hoist was waiting for John to take group photos and for Mark to video us singing Happy Birthday to Isabella Crane (one of the pioneers of female motorcycling) on her 90th birthday.

We parked up our bikes and finally got in from the cold and rain to share a hot meal and as we sat around together, cold and dripping wet, we shared stories, caught up with old friends and met new ones.

History, memories and friends were made on this cold wet and windy day and I was honoured to be a part of it.

Have a look at how successful our day was in the photo gallery below (click any photo to enlarge).
