What you'll do

Ride an Electric Fat Tyre Bike to experience the beautiful Galway city and its stunning hinterland, during this HALF DAY adventure.
Your RadRhino pedal-assist eBike makes for easy work throughout this tour, which means it’s suitable for everybody over 14 years. The fat wheels provide excellent rider comfort and afford us the time to fit lots in to this breathtaking cycle, which takes in the ocean, Salthill’s promenade, Galway city and its waterways, River Corrib and wild countryside.

Our tour starts from Cappagh Park, through Barna Woods before arriving at our fabulous local beach Silverstand, which overlooks the world renowned Galway Bay. A short ride along the Wild Atlantic Way brings us to Salthill’s iconic Blackrock. Here, we can choose to swim, dare jump off the diving board or simply relax, grab a coffee and watch the fun. Then we’ll ride beside the ocean to the city, along Nimmo’s Pier, taking in the sights around famous Spanish Arch. From here, we’ll explore the many waterways that surround Galway Cathedral and Nuns’ Island, before cycling along the River Corrib as far as the beautiful old ruin at Menlo Castle.
Our return trip takes a high road which provides us with majestic views of Galway Bay.

And never mind the weather ! You’ll be sure to have a day to remember regardless.

Points to note:
Guests should be comfortable riding a bike on roads with traffic.

The great outdoors is my passion. An adventurer at heart I have been fortunate to have travelled the globe for both work and leisure. Having moved to Galway in 1996, I quickly discovered there was no better place for adventure and exploration. Located perfectly by the ocean, whilst only a stones throw away from the mountains and lakes in magical Connemara which is renowned for its breathtaking scenery. It is said, that to fully appreciate any experience, it must be shared with others.
So during 2021, I started to offer Electric Fat Bike Tours to share this beautiful part of Ireland. I provide a personal experience with numbers limited to 6 guests.
I hope you will join me; I’m sure you will find it hugely enjoyable you will have lasting memories 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. 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 over Galway Bay on our return complete this wonderful tour.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 26 reviews.

Beautiful day out along hidden canals of the city and out among the surreal countryside which is surprisingly close. Lots of non traffic routes. The highlight was definitely the countryside part at the end. Just stunning. 5star.

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!
