Simon and Markus outside John Muir'sBirthplace


We were delighted to welcome travel writer Simon Parker and Markus Stitz (founder of Bikepacking Scotland) yeaterday, 16 June. Simon is cycling right around the coast of Britain, writing a regular column #BritainByBike for The Telegraph. He’d come to us from Northumberland, and is now heading back up north to Shetland, where his adventure began. He’s averaging about 70 miles a day. You can follow Simon on Twitter here @SimonWIParker 


Markus (@reizkultur) is a familiar face at John Muir’s Birthplace. If you haven’t seen his lovely film about cycling the John Muir Way, you can watch it here:
