Glasgow Eco Trust is delighted to be hosting this talk by Markus Stitz. Armed with photographs and film Markus will tell stories about cycling around the world on a singlespeed bike.

From Sep 2015 till Aug 2016 Markus Stitz rode around the world with only one gear on his bike. During his journey he saw the Aurora Borealis in Iceland, braved minus 17C in New Mexico, crossed the Australian Outback, cycled through 40 C in Thailand, climbed up to 3150 m in Iran, cycled the Anatolian Highlands and the Alps and rode the famous cobbles of Flanders. All to prove that it can be done. One gear is enough to cycle the world.

Join Markus for an evening of inspiring photography, films and storytelling that will fuel plans for your own adventures on two wheels.

Markus is also planning to do a short evening ride from George Square to the venue for anyone who is interested. Check out the Facebook event page for more information about this short led ride.
