Markus Stitz - Around the World Singlespeed

An evening with Markus Stitz.

From 3 Sep 2015 till 27 Aug 2016 Markus Stitz rode around the world on this bike, a customised Surly Ogre with only one gear. During his journey he saw the Aurora Borealis in Iceland, braved minus 17 C in New Mexico, pushed up the world’s steepest street in Dunedin, 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.

Come and hear all about it at New Woll Restaurant on 28 March from 7.30-9pm.  Tickets can be booked here.
