What you'll do

Ride an Electric Fat Tyre Bike to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and traffic, during this HALF DAY adventure in the magical countryside of Connemara.
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 fabulous cycle which takes in lakes, rivers and the ocean at the picturesque fishing village of Spiddal.

Our tour starts from Cappagh Park, then along quiet country lanes which soon provides us with fabulous views over Galway Bay. Off-road on a gravel trail at one of many wind parks, we’ll pass by bogs where turf is still cut by hand for winter fuel. The hills and mountains before us, water all around, the boggy, rugged landscape, this is Connemara.
Our arrival into Spiddal places us in ‘The Gaeltacht”, an area where the Irish language is spoken widely. Here, we can enjoy some leisure time in this lovely seaside village, perhaps a swim in the ocean, a coastal stroll or visit the Irish Craft Village and Café.
Our return journey takes us back via the country lanes, before we detour to cycle an old quaint bog road that takes us back to the old days.

This will be a truly memorable trip, one to cherish.

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

There’s an old saying that you haven’t seen Ireland until you’ve experienced Connemara, I strongly agree with that. This region immerses you with an abundance of beautiful countryside, giving all who venture and explore here a true taste of what lies within this wonderful landscape. From ocean views, countless lakes, streams and rivers, hills and mountains high, this place is the pure magic of the west of Ireland.

I couldn't rate Martin's tour highly enough! it really was top drawer! It's great value for money, and Martin can personalise it for you if you wish. Plus he's good company, and let's you take the lead, if you want. An excellent way to spend 4 hours.

Martin was an amazing tour guide! Let us go at whatever pace suited us best and brought us on a wonderful tour of Connemara. The bikes themselves were incredible, have plenty of torque, awesome thick tires that were great on and off-road and had very comfortable seats. 10/10 recommend this must do experience in Galway.

A TOP DAY OUT. I joined some pals to do this at the weekend. I loved the bikes I couldn’t believe how easy they made everything even up the hills. I might even consider getting one myself now. Really enjoyed the few hours, we had a really good laugh.

This is my third trip with Martin. I love the fat bikes! There was a group of us on this one, all local but none of us was familiar with the route Martin has chosen as his Connemara tour. Wow! It's a beautiful trip. Very quiet country roads, off road tracks, a couple of hills to test the bikes (no problem for them) stunning scenery before we reached the beautiful village of Spiddeal. We had an hour there. Martin showed us a few spots to explore on foot and we had a coffee in the craft village in the heart of Spiddeal. It's a lovely colourful spot and it was great to hear a couple of local people speaking as Gaeilge! ( speaking Irish). Although im local, i hadnt stopped in Spiddeal for years and i had forgotten how magical a place it is. We cycled back at a leisurely pace and because the roads were so quiet, we were able to chat and have the craic. The bike was perfect, comfortable and safe and enough pep to manage the couple of steep hills. Our group really enjoyed the trip. Martin is a great host. Hes really enthusiastic about the package he offers, the bikes, the routes, the destinations and that's very infectious. Thanks very much Martin.

I did this Connemara tour with friends for something different to do. I cycle a fair bit so was interested to see what an electric bike would be like. I must say I was very impressed, albeit a totally different experience from a road bike this was certainly lots of fun. The fat tyres bring so much comfort and the saddle too was a welcome change. I took particular attention to the battery as knew we were covering about 40km. Despite the distance and hills I still had about 50% battery remaining after the tour. The route itself was wonderful and the sunshine an added bonus, thanks for the day Martin.
