We rented 3 bikes to cycle the Greenway for the afternoon. The owner could not have been more helpful in setting up the bikes and advising us where to go. We did a 50km round trip (stopping at a bar about 25km from Westport for refreshments). All was fine until about 5 km from home on the way back when a car turned in front of my wife in order to access their drive (not blaming them at all) and she braked a bit hard and came off her bike on gravel. It was quite nasty with gravel in her arm, hand and leg - some of the wounds were open. We got back to the bike shop about a minute before closing time and the owner got out a hose to clear out the gravel then antiseptic and bandages to get us back to Galway (out friend is a medic so were in good hands after we left anyway). The owner stayed on until we were all happy that the wounds were as clean as they could be and had largely stopped bleeding and all the while he was sympathetic, attentive and engaged with our humour as we tried to see the funny side of the event. A lovely bike ride, which we intend to complete next time, and without hesitation we will rent from The Westport Bike Shop as they are just so good in every way!
