Cycling Ireland are delighted to announce that with the slight ease in restrictions surrounding outdoor exercise, they are introducing Virtual Solo Bike Rides.

Virtual Bike Rides are solo bike rides that you sign up to take part in on your own, within a 5km radius of your home which you will get credited for completing. So you can earn rewards while you cycle!

Anyone who is a member of AXA Community Bike Rides can sign up to take part in a ride on their own at ANY time that suits them on that specific day. To get credited for completing the bike ride, they must submit a picture from their ride to within 24hrs of completing the ride or alternatively tag AXA Community Bike Rides in their picture on Facebook, so that we can then use these images to further promote on social media the opportunity to participate.

Although we can’t ride together in our local communities, we can ride as individuals as part of this virtual community and look to stay connected during this time. For those who aren’t members, they can simply join for free by registering their details on
