Artists appreciate the tranquil setting provided by Cycling Salamander. 

Artists are required to demonstrate their craft and greet gallery customers for four hours a day. This leaves plenty of time for artists to practice their craft without interruption at the gallery or visit the many local attractions.  
We'll share with you our favorite beaches, hiking trails, and local specialties.
