We love to share our passion for the Scottish outdoors. What better way to get into bikepacking than being guided by people that create the routes you’ll enjoy in the future? Jay and Markus are now qualified MTB leaders and will use their experience to safely guide you on off-road terrain.

Based in Edinburgh and Linlithgow we know this part of Scotland more than well. Markus is the founder of Bikepacking Scotland, the first person to cycle the world on a singlespeed and an experienced bikepacker. He has designed most routes on this site. He is also a passionate photographer and videographer, and loves great vegetarian food, coffee and craft beer.

Jay is an experienced outdoor instructor, dad, social entrepreneur, experienced mountain biker and a great bikepacker too. He lives in Linlithgow and can ride the trails around Beecraigs Country Park with one gear and his eyes closed.

Both Markus and Jay are British Cycling qualified Level 2 Mountain Bike Leaders. Markus also speaks fluent German (he was actually born there).
