Who Are We?

Our Story

We're Jen and Matt, and we would like to make your stay on Colonsay as enjoyable as possible.


We love being outdoors, and making the most of the stunning scenery and wildlife that Colonsay has to offer.


We have both enjoyed cycling and paddleboarding for many years, and are so excited to be able to offer these activities to visitors to the island.


As well as running Colonsay Bikes and Boards, we also produce delicious locally reared pork. You can buy this by contacting us directly, or you can pick some up in the local shop - Colonsay General Store. Our friend Gavin at The Pantry has created some delicious additions to his menu using our pork. Be sure to check out Port Mor Pork on Instagram if you'd like to see where your meat comes from.  


Our Core Values

We love being outside, whether it be on the sea, on our bikes, or on the croft. We want to share that with you, and of course, your safety is our number one concern. Any equipment you hire from us will have been cleaned after it's previous use, and social distancing will be practised at all times.


We are really lucky to have Lewis, our incredible bike mechanic joining us on our team. He services our bikes regularly, in between winning British number 1 titles and racing UCI World Cups (not that we're ridiculously proud or anything!). Check him out on Instagram: @lewissummers71


Our light and durable boards and paddles are cleaned and checked after every use.


Jen is a brand rep for our friends at The Paddle Co. If you fall in love with paddleboarding (highly likely!) she has a selection of boards available for sale. If you would prefer to order a board online, you can take advantage of our relationship with these guys by receiving free shipping using Jen's code: JENFREESHIPPING

Let us take the stress out of everything, so you can enjoy your holiday!
