Roscommon Set For AXA Community Bike Rides

Cycling Ireland has partnered with AXA Insurance to create AXA Community Bike Rides, an exciting new programme that inspires people all over Roscommon to get out on their bikes.

AXA Community Bike Rides are free social leisure rides for adults of all ages and abilities. A trained Ride Leader will ensure your cycle is both safe and enjoyable. Participants can choose from ‘Easy Going’ or ‘Challenging’ rides meaning there is a distance and pace to suit everyone.

Participants can earn free rewards when they take part in AXA Community Bike Rides. Rewards include buffs, water bottles and technical t-shirts and you can claim your first reward after just 10 rides.


“AXA Community Bike Rides are a fantastic way for new and returning cyclists to enjoy the sport in a safe and supportive environment” said Cycling Ireland CEO Matt McKerrow.

“We are looking forward to working with AXA to grow the AXA Community Bike Rides programme over the next 3 years and inspire even more people to enjoy the benefits of cycling.”

AXA Community Bike Rides participant, Dermot Gaynor is encouraging people to sign up for a local ride: “It’s great fun and a fantastic way to get regular exercise. You don’t have to be an accomplished cyclist to join in, once you are comfortable on the bike you will enjoy it.

The great thing about AXA Community Bike Rides is that you are looked after by the Ride Leader, you never feel like you’re not able for it and you make lots of new friends.”
