After a career in marketing and riding various ultra endurance rides and events in his spare time, Markus Stitz circumnavigated the world on a single-speed bike from September 2015 to August 2016. He cycled 34,000 km through 26 countries, scaling an equivalent of the height of Mt Everest more than 38 times. After his return he founded Bikepacking Scotland, specialising on the development of bikepacking and cycle tourism in Scotland. He also works as freelance writer, photographer, and marketing consultant, and has twice been awarded by bikepacking.com for his work.
