Markus Stitz – Roads Less Travelled


Event Details


‘Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.’ Robert Frost

Follow Edinburgh-based adventurer Markus Stitz on a bikepacking journey on the roads less travelled through Scotland and around the world. After cycling 34,000km on a singlespeed bike through 26 different countries in 2015/16 Markus has since developed a number of bikepacking trails in Scotland and explored the wilderness of Norway, Chile and Argentina. In Roads Less Travelled he will take you on a journey with stunning photography, storytelling and films to fuel your plans for the next adventure on two wheels.

“Markus was our special guest speaker on three occasions on our successful Kendal Mountain UK Tour 2018. Both our team and the ticket buying audience left the event both hugely impressed and inspired by his achievements. He delivers his adventurous stories in a professional, engaging, approachable and often light-hearted way which prompted a great response with queues of questions after the session”(Steve Scott, Kendal Mountain Film Festival)
“We were delighted to have Markus headline the final session at our 2017 festival. He was warm, engaging and fun, with an infectious enthusiasm that had the audience charmed from beginning to end. Watch out for this guy … he’ll be tearing up the adventure film festival circuit for many years to come!” (Rich Rowe, Peebles Outdoor Film Festival)
