The aim of IBA Ireland is to encourage participation in long distance motorcycling and permit riders who enjoy big mileage and a challenge to meet like-minded individuals . Although the opportunities within Ireland for long distance riding may seem somewhat limited, the Introduction of Ireland specific IBA rides (circuit of ireland, Ireland SS 1000 and 32 county challenge) and also local events to provide Irish riders an opportunity to meet fellow long distance enthusiasts. There are also opportunities to enjoy some socialising with fellow long distance motorcyclists. If you like riding that little bit further than your average motorcyclist, are sick of doing that same old Sunday Run with the lads, and want to test yourself,then we may be the organisation for you.
Some riders combine one of our certificate rides with a charity fund raising effort. Riders get the benefit of raising money for Charity, Membership of the IBA and your sponsors can see the ride has been independantly audited. If you wish to combine a certificate ride with a fund raising effort - go for it.
