I moved to Galway in 1996 and have enjoyed everything it offers in abundance ever since. The great outdoors is my passion, so I couldn’t have chosen a better place living by the ocean, whilst only a stones throw away from the mountains and the magical Connemara. I’ve enjoyed over 20 years of adventure within this wonderful region, have climbed most of the peaks, paddled the rivers and lakes, cycled the valleys and greenways, often combining these activities on very special big days out. I’d like to share my enthusiasm and knowledge with you, in the hope you’ll appreciate and enjoy the things you see, open your mind to new experiences and maybe provide some inspiration for your own dreams one day.

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 21 reviews.

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!

I can not recommend this experience more! The best way to get around Galway is via fat bike with Martin as a wonderful guide.

The fat bike tour was the perfect experience to see Galway from a new perspective. Our family of five( 3 teens) enjoyed every minute of the beautiful scenery and views. Martin with an incredible guide who had so much knowledge about the city! All in all a very memorable day out! Would highly recommend this tour

A MUST DO when visiting Galway! We were a family of 4 ranging from 22 to 60, and we all had a blast (even though it was raining a bit). Martin customized the tour to what we wanted and was very flexible which we appreciated. It was a really unique way to see Galway, and you really don’t need to be a big biker or anything. The e bikes are incredible, and very safe easy and fun to use. Awesome time all around!

We did a specially shortened trip kindly agreed to by Martin due to our time constraints. Two hours on the bikes was fun and once you got the hang of the fat bikes they were sturdy and safe. Loved the route Martin planned for us which was exactly what we had hoped for as an orientation cycle. We were quite comfortable in our normal clothes (no wide jeans though) and Martin provided the safety helmets (very comfortable) and hi-viz jackets (although we decided not to use them as we were riding in bright sunshine!) Well-planned and very reasonably priced tour - thanks Martin!
