Travelling any distance carrying art materials requires good pedalling machines:


The Mercian is to the left

A King of Mercia traditional steel lugged touring bicycle, handmade and tailored by Mercian Cycles of Derby. This bicycle previously travelled half of Australia, the whole of Vietnam and Cambodia, and the lengths of both New Zealand and Japan. It now nips around London, Norwich and Suffolk to art shops and classes.



A Harry vs Larry – Bullitt assembled and built by SBC Cycles of Shoreditch, London. A bicycle that can safely transport camping gear, food, paints, canvases, brushes and easel, all steadily to anywhere.
