In September we ran a feature on Markus Stitz who rode around the world on a single speed bike. The plucky little German who has adopted Scotland as his home, has announced that he is to start another tour, although this one involves public speaking rather than pedalling.
He'll be appearing on 4th December at the Green Jersey in Clitheroe at 7PM after he's checked out the local bike trails and bike shop. There are only 60 tickets available at £10 each so make sure you get in there early by clicking here.
He'll also be speaking at the Peebles Outdoor Film Festival over the weekend of 27th - 29th January. The festival is now in its third year and has a cracking line-up of speakers, including Crawford Carrick-Anderson, Sean Conway,Ed Shoote, Keith Partridge, Tracy Moseley, Paul McGreal, David Aston, Nicky Spinks and Greg Boswell.
