About Us

Bikepacking Scotland is the new home for all things bikepacking in this beautiful country. From routes like the Capital Trail and the Central Belter, to gear reviews of stuff that works here, to events like talks and social rides, we are in the process of building a comprehensive place for everyone that wants to enjoy the opportunities that Scotland has to offer.

Bikepacking Scotland is the idea of Markus Stitz, who most recently cycled around the world on a singlespeed bike. On and off road, through 26 different countries and over massive mountains Markus came back to Scotland with the urge to develop bikepacking and make it more accessible for everyone.

Scotland has a vast network of heritage paths, purpose-built mountain bike trails, bothys, pubs, quiet roads and cycle paths; the perfect ingredients for a great bikepacking adventure.
