Pedal Power Galway in association with Péarla na Mara are running the world's first ever speed dating bike event for all ages ranging from 18 to 50+. Pedal Power, which was launched at the St Patrick’s Day parade in 2016, has been operating for over a year now and this open air "tour bus" is becoming increasingly intrinsic to the dynamic Galway landscape.
Péarla na Mara, a cosy stylish café-restaurant in Bridgewater Court on Lower Fairhill Rd (across from the Claddagh fire station ), is the perfect meeting point for the groups to assemble and get organized for the speed dating on Pedal Power. We will be running 4 speed dating sessions on our bike from 6 to 10 pm on Thursday the 18th of May.
The speed dating bike concept is very simple, yet ingenious: we invite 6 girls to sit on one side and 6 guys on the other side; each person has a 10-minute date whilst cycling around Spanish Arch/Long Walk area. Every 10 minutes, the bell rings and the guys switch seats and meet a new girl. Great craic and endorphins from exertion guaranteed!
Afterwards people fill out a questionnaire to see who liked who. If there is a match, they can get a dinner date at Péarla na Mara at a discounted price!
Price for speed dating is only €20 p/p (this includes a complimentary glass of wine )!
