International Female Ride Day – May 2024

Northern Colorado IMRG celebrates International Female Ride Day

Every year, on the first Saturday in May, International Female Ride Day (IFRD) celebrates women motorcycle riders. The day also encourages and empowers other women to get involved in powersports.  NoCo IMRG Chapter members will rode in celebration of IFRD.

On Saturday May 4th, we rode to Cheyenne and onto Happy Jack Rd for lunch at the Bunkhouse Bar & Grill.  Afterward, we continued on Happy Jack and made our way to Laramie.  From Laramie, we headed south on 287 to Poudre Canyon (Hwy 14).  On Poudre Canyon, we went west to reach Stove Prairie, then south to Rist Canyon.  We ended our ride in Laporte after traveling east on Rist Canyon.

Happy Jack Road is a scenic route connecting Cheyenne and Laramie. Along the way, we saw a variety of landscapes, including towering mountains, and rolling hills.  Riding the route from Highway 287 on Poudre Canyon to Stove Prairie and across Rist Canyon was a scenic and adventurous route.

This IFRD ride route was 195 miles with an estimated 5 hours of saddle time.  Elevation ranged from 4.9K feet and 8.7K feet.  The ride was rated at 4-5 (1=easy; 5=hard) with some highway speeds and short interstate riding.  Also lots of curves in foothills and low mountain ranges.
