Martin Earley (born 10 June 1962 in Clonsilla, Dublin, Republic of Ireland) is a former Irish professional road bicycle racer.

He turned professional in 1985 with the Fagor (cycling team) with whom he stayed until 1987. In 1986 he won the 14th stage of the Giro d'Italia and the second of the Tour of the Basque Country. In 1987, he was part of the Irish team at the world road championship that ended with a win by Stephen Roche. After that he rode for Kas (cycling team) and then the Dutch PDM (cycling team) of Sean Kelly (cyclist). The highlight of his career was a stage win in the 1989 Tour de France when he broke clear of three riders 750m from the end of 157 km from Labastide-d'Armagnac to Pau, Pyrénées-Atlantiques. Earley completed five of his eight Tours; his highest finish was 44th in 1989.

After PDM left the sport, he rode for Festina (cycling team), then switched to mountain biking by riding for Raleigh and then for individual sponsors. He competed in the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta in the mountain bike race and finished 25th.

He has a practice as a physiotherapist and chiropractor. He has been a coach to cyclists including Irish Olympians Robin Seymour and Tarja Owens.
