Calling all bikers! AXA Community Bike Rides coming to Co Kildare this month

Axa Community Bike Rides are coming to Co Kildare in the next few weeks, encouraging bikers to improve their fitness and gain confidence in a non-competitive environment.

These are free social leisure rides organised in local communities around the country.

Participants do not need to have fancy bikes, but do need to have a bike that is roadworthy and to wear a helmet. When they sign up on the axacommunitybikerides.com website they are automatically insured on the cycle by AXA.

There will be a trained leader with the groups of no more than 8 people.

All abilities welcome and we will ensure that we make time for a coffee and a chat either during or after the cycle. Nobody will be left behind.

There will be community bike rides organised in Athy, Nurney, Kildare and Clane in the coming weeks. The first bike ride is taking place in Athy on Saturday 14 Sep at 10am. 

The next bike ride will take place in Athy on Saturday 21 September. 

Anyone interested is asked to visit axacommunitybikerides.com and join, then search for a ride in Kildare to see what suits them best.
