Our Ethos

We are a social enterprise working for Galway’s community and environment.

An Mheitheal Rothar are delighted to announce that we are now selling new bikes which are eligible for the Cycle to Work scheme. Your purchase of a new bike and accessories from us can save you money on your commute, and help you get fitter and healthier.

You’ll also be helping to support our community work like our recycling initiatives, our training programs, and our DIY workshops where anyone can learn to fix their own bike.

The Bike to Work scheme allows eligible employees to pay for the cost of a new bike and accessories such as helmets, lights and locks with pre-tax income. This can save you almost half the cost of the bike. And that’s before you even add in the money saved on fuel, parking, bus or train tickets.
