AXA Community Bike Ride

Last Sunday we enjoyed a great day out on the Great Western Greenway rail trail in Co. Mayo.  We cycled  from Newport to Achill where we were joined by one cyclist from Newcastle West, Limerick.  We covered approx. 65 kms and enjoyed refreshments in Mulranny.  A massive well done to everybody who cycled on Sunday and a special thanks to John Slattery for leading us on the journey and Eileen for providing us with very welcome refreshments.


Looking forward to next Sunday where we will cycle the Loughmore Loop and stop for refreshments at the cottage in Loughmore.
