The PGATV Club has much to be proud of, having just hosted their first-ever International Female Ride Day (IFRD) with tremendous success.

"It was a great day," said attendee Shannon Daw.

An event geared toward women in powersports, this gathering brought out attendees of all ages. A four-generation family made it out—the youngest rider was only 11 years old, and her great-grandma of 82 years old came along as a passenger! 

Thirty-two ladies came out in total, getting together to listen to demos on pre-ride inspections and punctured tire repair before heading out to the Tabor Mountain trails. The terrain was ideal, and many new friendships were made.

"For many years, I was involved with our local 'Ladies of Harley' group, organizing local rides such as the IFRD Ride and other events, fundraising in support of many local charities," said Nycole Ross, membership director of the PGATV Club. "This year, I wanted to organize a different ride for the ladies in powersports, for our ATV/UTV club members. Due to the exceptional low snowpack and warm weather, some of the trails on Tabor Mountain were accessible for riding for this time of the year. Many ladies and supporters were excited to participate in our event!"

The PGATV Club's inaugural IFRD was more than just a successful event—it was a sign of the growing presence and influence of women in powersports. The turnout, spanning generations and skill levels, showcased the diversity and camaraderie within the community. Looking ahead, the PGATV Club has set a strong precedent for future events, demonstrating their commitment to inclusivity and empowerment within the powersports community.
