Petre Șandru, Country Manager, Coca-Cola Ireland said: “We are delighted to be bringing the Coca-Cola Zero Sugar Bikes to college campuses around Ireland. Having a great public bike scheme on your doorstep makes it so much easier to work cycling into your everyday routine and we want to spread this message to college students. With 16 stations and 195 bikes already located throughout Galway City, the scheme has been a major benefit to tourists, commuters and leisure bike users alike. We are today hoping to encourage more students in NUIG to avail of the bike scheme with stops located right beside their college campus, it’s the ideal way for them to commute to college.”

Anne Graham, CEO of the National Transport Authority said: “In recent years, we have seen a very positive trend, with more and more people cycling to college and to work, and I have no doubt that the bike share schemes like the one here in Galway have played a significant role in making that happen. The scheme has been very successful and we want to build on this success by improving services and expanding the number of locations served.”

Gearoid McInerney, Galway Hurler and All-Ireland Winner said: “I’m thrilled to be a part of the Coca-Cola Zero Sugar Regional Bikes campus tour. The bike scheme is already hugely successful in Galway City and with a station so near the NUIG campus, we’re encouraging all existing students who haven’t already, and freshers in particular, to get signed up for free today. It was great to go head to head with some students in the bike challenge today and test their pedal power!”
