We provide fold down chairs for our painting holiday guests.

Cycling Holidays

We provide all of the bikes and crash helmets for the cycling holiday, but for your comfort, you might want to invest in some padded shorts, which are available from most sports shops these days. Other than that, you should look to bring the following with you:

You won’t need to carry a rucksack. Everything that you need can be stored in the support vehicle for the day.
