The great outdoors is my passion. An adventurer at heart I have been fortunate to have travelled the globe for both work and leisure. Moving to Galway in 1996, I discovered there was no better place and have enjoyed everything in abundance here ever since. Located perfectly by the ocean, whilst only a stones throw away from the mountains and lakes in magical Connemara. It is said, that to fully appreciate any experience, it must be shared with others. So during 2021, I started offering Electric Fat Bike Tours to share this beautiful part of Ireland. I provide a personable experience with numbers limited to 6 guests.
I do hope you will join me soon, I am sure you will find it hugely enjoyable and be a lasting memory of your visit here in the wonderful city of Galway.

Where you'll be

Galway is indeed a very special place. Our journey slows down the experience and allows us to appreciate fully everything we see. The ocean cycle into the city via Salthill is simply breathtaking, regardless of the weather. Morning time around these sleepy parts can be quite surreal. The River Corrib is spectacular and we cycle along its bank towards the mighty Lough Corrib. The elevated views on our return to base complete this wonderful tour.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 25 reviews.

The tour was amazing! We had a beautiful tour with Martin, he explained us how to use the bikes and it was super easy to understand and to use. Even driving in the streets with the cars was super safe and easy. For most of the time we were in streets with no cars and we had a beautiful view of the sea, the promenade, the main attractions of the city the countryside near Galway. I truly recommend this tour when visiting Galway! Martin explains everything so clear, and you can really understand how he deeply loves Galway and Connemara!

What can I say… I was blown away from the start at how easygoing and welcoming Martin was. I couldn’t have asked for a better host. There was no question he couldn’t answer. The bikes were so easy to use and so comfortable; Martin took the time to show me all the features and benefits of the fat tyre Rad power bike and made sure I was confident before setting off on one of the best experiences I’ve had here in Galway. We headed out through the woods at Cappagh park and down to silverstrand beach - here Martin gave me the opportunity for a swim but I opted to see the sights instead. The journey then continued through salt hill and through Galway city, stopping at points where Martin told me some information and history about the places we were passing by. (Note this is not a guided tour if that is what you are looking for, it is about the adventure but Martin will answer any questions you may have) Martin was a great host and showed me the hidden beauties of Galway that I would never have found if I hadn’t booked this amazing experience. I can’t wait to come back with friends so they can experience this unique opportunity. I only hope anyone who books this enjoys it as much as I did. Thanks so much Martin

It was a great experience and a can’t miss in Galway. I feel the best way to see someplace new is on a bike. With and electric bike you can see even more. Bikes are awesome. Martin is a wonderful host. Outgoing and informative. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

This tour was great. The e bikes were brand new, high end and easy to ride. The route had a great variety of view - ocean/bay waterfront, then Galway city and river front, then lakeside and finally countryside. I felt safe and the e-bikes made the trip very easy to navigate even on the steep hills. Martin was a personable, informative and fun guide. What a great idea on how to spend a few hours getting to explore the Galway area. Thanks Martin!

I had a great time biking around Galway with Martin! I learned a lot about the city and loved getting to ride through the countryside as well. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a less touristy and more active Galway experience!
