PHOENIX -- Pilot/reporter Bruce Haffner caught up with three ladies getting ready for the International Female Ride Day on a scenic ride to Bartlett Lake.

The road is perfect for motorcyclists to enjoy their passion for cycling. Gina Marra, General Manager of Go AZ Motorcycles, says riding gives her the feeling of complete freedom. Along on the ride is women's land speed record holder Valerie Thompson and motorcycle journalist  Genevieve Schmitt. 

International Female Ride day was conceived as an event to encourage women to "just ride" and promote women cycling.

Go AZ Motorcycles is sponsoring women's events all month, including riding lessons for beginners, bike buying tips, and seminars.
