IOM Trike Tours was launched in August 2011 by Andy and Wendy Turner. It all started with 1 trike, a plethora of passion and plenty of learning curves! The business has seen continual growth since its launch, resulting in Andy and Wendy deciding to settle into well-earned retirement in September 2017, and local couple, Dave Cubbon and Kat Stamp taking over at the helm.
Dave was born and bred in Onchan, and is a Manxman though and through. Dave has a good working knowledge of motor vehicles having been employed as a fully qualified mechanic for many years. He is an avid watcher of the TT and other motor sports on the island. His passion for things that travel fast on wheels extends to his home life where in the garage (much to Kat's dismay) he currently keeps 1 car, 1 enduro bike, and 2 motorbikes – one of which is complete with a sidecar outfit! Kat was born in Bermuda but moved to the Isle of Man at an early age – whilst she knows that she cannot profess to be Manx, the Isle of Man is where her heart is and she hopes that she is now considered a 'local' in Laxey village where she and Dave live. Kat grew up and was schooled on the island but moved away to attend Sheffield Hallam University and study International Tourism Management. As part of her degree she spent a year living in South Carolina, USA and in 2010 spent a year travelling around the world. In 2011 she returned to the Isle of Man and worked in numerous hospitality and office based jobs, before ultimately joining the Police and meeting Dave. Kat has now left the Isle of Man Constabulary and has gone full circle, retuning to the tourism industry to run IOM Trike Tours .
As a direct result of the success and reputation left behind by Andy and Wendy, Dave and Kat have been forced to hit the ground running. Whilst no changes may be noticed initially, Dave and Kat have big imaginations and even bigger ideas for the future of IOM Trike Tours. Watch this space.....
IOM Trike Tours now have three Trikes available so you can share this exhilerating experience in safety with your friends and family.
The Isle of Man is known as the Road Racing Capital of the World and as such draws fans of the sport from all over the world. We know however that some people are nervous about riding motorbikes but have always wished they could just have a go, at least once. With that in mind we have researched the best way to fulfil this dream and can now provide a safe, reliable but still thrilling means of transport. Although many of our roads have no speed limit we want you to enjoy our beautiful Island and tours safely. The emphasis of our tours is on enjoyment rather than high speed, though believe me when we say 30mph feels more like 50mph on the Trike when the stunning countryside is flying past.
The Island has hundreds of miles of quieter roads that will take you through places of historical interest and breathtaking scenery. Our Manx drivers are very knowledgeable about the Island, its history, people and places, so feel free to ask anything! We love to show people what our Island has to offer and therefore IOM Trike Tours provide a range of set tours for your enjoyment. Alternatively we are happy to discuss tours tailored to your requirements.
We are also available for pre booked Wedding hire, Prom Nights, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Memorial Last Laps and even romantic Marriage Proposals. If you have an idea that we could help you with, please phone to discuss your requirements.
Our Trikes are fully licensed by the Isle of Man Road Transport Licensing Committee and our experienced and knowledgeable Manx drivers will ensure your safety and enjoyment at all times. All our drivers have been Police vetted, and are first aid trained.
The Trikes are factory built in Germany and have been stringently tested and approved for use as Private Hire Vehicles by the Isle of Man Vehicle Testing Centre. For added safety the Trikes are fitted with lap belts for passengers, which must be worn at all times. Each Trike has a 3-way intercom between the driver and passengers and also carry a fire extinguisher and first aid kit.
Your safety and enjoyment are our top priority, so come along and enjoy the ride.
Owner & driver. After a career in the Royal Navy then the Isle of Man Constabulary, Andy set up the business in 2010. Having owned many motorbikes over the years, his current pride & joy is a Honda Varadero 1000cc, though with all the Trikes to ride, he doesn't get too much time on it these days. Andy also enjoys sailing & is a volunteer skipper of Sailing for the Disabled.
H has been driving with us from the beginning & has been a great support in helping us develop the reputation for good service that we have today. A lifelong racing fan & one time competitor, H has a vast knowledge of the history of racing on the island and has many friends in the racing world. When not "playing" on the Trikes, H sings in the Llondhoo Male Voice Choir, spends time with his family & enjoys walking their dog, Lottie.
Roy joined us in 2012 as we were in need of extra help. We knew Roy well as he is a volunteer skipper & great supporter for Sailing for the Disabled. Due to his sailing commitments, Roy leaves himself very little spare time, but when he does have time to relax, he enjoys his gardening & grows some great tomatoes!
Ok, he's not really Dangerous, its just a name that's stuck, though he prefers Dishy Dave! Dave joined us in 2013, though as a former colleague of Andy's, we have known him & his family for many years. Dave rides his own Triumph motorcycle, completing several European road trips & is kept busy with property renovation for family when he is not driving with us.
Dukey joined us in 2014 & seems to be really loving it! Again, as another former colleague, we have known him for many years & Wendy went to school with his wife! He is a father of many, so most of his spare time is spent with his rapidly expanding family & he also enjoys gardening & grows the biggest apples!!!
Yet another former colleague, Robbie joined us in 2014. As a lifelong motorcyclist with many driving qualifications, Robbie is well practiced using Manx roads to their fullest potential. Owner of several bikes & cars, he competes in trials along with his sons, recently beating them both, "which is not cool Dad"!
