Edingburgh to Schwobfeld (Germany) and back

2 01 2012

Over Christmas I followed the adventure of Markus Stitz as he cycled from Edinburgh to see his parents in Schwobfeld, Germany on his single speed bike. This is Markus:

Looks a bit mad to me, which he clearly is! After getting to Germany for Christmas, a ride of over 850 miles, he decided it would be a good idea to cycle all the way back to Edinburgh again. The fact that he decided to ride 2600km (1615 miles) at the end of December definitely marks him out as a bit mad. Sure, I know I like to do stuff like this but I’m a cold wimp and would not even consider it at this time of the year. Good to read of adventures like this, a long distance ride, not a race, more of a tour in spirit, and at a time of the year when most people are putting their feet up.

Check out his blog Fearless and Unique for details of this and his other mad adventures.
