Bikepacking Scotland was founded by Round the World Cyclist Markus Stitz in 2017. We are interested in growing bikepacking as an activity in Scotland, and have since worked successfully with a number of organisations to effectively market regions as premium cycling destinations. Our focus is on developing great products and promoting them with inspiring content. We are passionate about Scotland and its unique access rights, and understand and deliver on the the needs of both clients and users.
Our clients include:
- Ale Water Valley Cooperative
- Argyll and the Isles Tourism Cooperative
- Glasgow City Council
- Hostelling Scotland
- Scottish Borders Council
- Sustrans Scotland
- Visit East Lothian
We have also offered consultancy & marketing services to the following organisations:
Here are three examples of our work to showcase regions in Scotland as cycling destinations and what our clients have to say about the work.
‘It’s been such a great project to work on and thank you for leading us through it and of course for the outstanding end result.’ Elaine Carmichael, Visit East Lothian
‘AITC appointed Markus to work on developing a bikepacking trail in Argyll & The Isles late summer 2017, having first ‘met’ online when he did the SYHA project on the islands. Markus is passionate about bikepacking, and research is a core part of what he does with any project. He is very creative and films his own rides capturing the essence of each ride and the real sense of place. His marketing background is a real advantage for the work he does. He always has an eye on the future user and what will appeal to them. Markus is highly recommended.’ Carron Tobin, Development Manager, Argyll and the Isles Tourism Cooperative
‘Working with Markus to develop the Reiver Raid in the Ale Water Valley has been a great experience. If you are prepared and able to work at the same breakneck speed as Markus, almost anything can be achieved. He has a great international network of contacts he can call on when needed. Every time he visits the area our social media show a spike.’ Teyl de Bordes, Vice-chair, Ale Water Valley Cooperative
And here’s a small selection of the online coverage we have achieved internationally:
