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.
