Singlespeed Around The World ~ A Talk By Markus Stitz At Warminster Civic Centre


Singlespeed Around The World
a talk by
Markus Stitz
at
Warminster Civic Centre,
Sambourne Road, Warminster, BA12 8LB
on
Thursday 24th May 2018
7.00 p.m. 

26 countries, 34,000 km.
From 3rd September 2015 to 27th August 2016 
Markus Stitz rode around the world with only 
one gear on his bike, a customised Surly Ogre. 
During his journey he saw the Aurora Borealis 
in Iceland, braved minus 17C in 
New Mexico, pushed up the world's steepest 
street in Dunedin, crossed the Australian Outback, 
cycled through 40C in Thailand, climbed up 
to 3150m 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.
This engaging talk is presented with pictures,
videos, and stories from the road,
sometimes tragic, most times funny.

 ‘warm, engaging and fun, with an infectious 
enthusiasm that had the audience charmed from
 beginning to end. Watch out for this guy . . . 
he’ll be tearing up the adventure film festival 
circuit for many years to come!’ 
(Rich Rowe, Peebles Outdoor Film Festival)
