On Yer Bike! Ar Do Rothar


On Yer Bike closed permanently at the end of January 2023.

Closing notice on shop door reads:   Please note that On Yer Bike will be closing down at the end of the month. Saturday 28th of January 2023 will be the last day of operation for On Yer Bike Cycles.  The decision to close down the business was not easy to make, but after a lot of careful consideration I have decided to close the business. I want to thank every customer of ours at On Yer Bike since our doors opened, it has been a pleasure working with you all. We would not have been as successful as we were without all your support and loyalty throughout the years. Thank you. Sincerely, Daniel *For anyone who is unable to collect their bicycle before the 28th please email or pm to arrange a suitable collection time.

Original listing


Originally opened in August 2008 (just before the recession kicked in!) On Yer Bike is a sales and service bicycle shop, located in Prospect Hill, next door to Prospect Hill Launderette - though they do have a big sign beside carpark a few doors down the road.

The offer new bicycles (including assembly and safety checks), manual to electric bike conversions, and bicycle mechanic services- as well as rentals and sales of second-hand bikes.   They're had a moment of fame a few years ago for for refusing to open during Race Week, because they got sick of people "renting" bicycles and not returning them - now they just call it an annual holiday. 

The buisness was originally opened by Derrick Regan with shops in Craughwell and then Galway city, as well as a mobile repair service.  Sadly Derrick died in October 2020, but the Prospect Hill store continued under new management.
