Talks and Events

Borders Book Festival

Author Markus Stitz will be giving a talk about his inspiration for the new book: how he went about devopeling each of the rides and undertaking them with the local host rider for each one. Along with decisions about making the ride locations as sustainable as possible from a transport perspective and what inspires the host riders about their chosen route, the talk will be a fascinating insight into how this project went from an idea to a published book.

Venue: CSY Architects Marquee, Harmony Garden, Melrose, Scotland (Google Map)
