INTERNATIONAL FELLOWSHIP of MOTORCYCLING ROTARIANS -- North American Chapter
 
 
 
ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL FELLOWSHIP OF MOTORCYCLING ROTARIANS
 
The International Fellowship of Motorcycling Rotarians (IFMR) is a world-wide fellowship of Rotary Club members who enjoy and share the sport of motorcycling, travel and community service across boundaries and borders. It was founded in 1992 by Rotarians in Australia, Canada, Sweden and the United States and now has members and chapters worldwide. The IFMR world-wide website is found at www.IFMR.org. The fellowship is open to all Rotarians with an interest in motorcycles…riding on/off-road, racing, collecting, restoring, motor scooters or otherwise.
 
The Motorcycling Fellowship is focused on having fun & fellowship, meeting other Rotarians from around the world, and motorcycle safety. We fully support all of the tenets of Rotary, especially fellowship and tend to fulfill our community service through our local Rotary Clubs. Rides are planned by Rotarians and may be local, regional or international in scope. The Fellowship’s events are open to all Rotarians, their families and guests and all makes and models ridden by Rotarians are welcome.
 
IFMR-North America chapter dues are US$20, 01 July30 June
 
The IFMR-NA Eastern & Mid-Atlantic group holds spring and fall rides each year. The California group has held events such as the Alien Ride, the Desert Ride, the Indian Country Ride and Yosemite Rides. When the Rotary International convention is held in North America rides are generally organized to the convention.
 
IFMR-NA international rides have included rides all over North America, with some being day rides, and others being as long as 10 days. Each region decides what rides they will do, and we encourage ideas up through the Regional Directors about other possible rides. This is a Fellowship made up of great Rotarians, all with a vision of enjoying each other while enjoying our riding machines.
 
If there isn’t currently an IFMR group in your area, you can become the seed for developing your own local group and organize Rotary rides and shows at your Rotary club and make presentations to Rotary clubs regarding Rotary Internationals Fellowships. June is Rotary Fellowships month, an especially good time to organize your ride, show or present to Rotary club members about Rotary Fellowships. Learn more about Rotary Fellowships at www.rotary.org/fellowships.
 
GET A BIKE; GET A GROUP & RIDE!
