After the success of their first Explore Your Boundaries film, round the world cyclists Mark Beaumont and Markus Stitz have teamed up with Jenny Graham to explore the boundary of Scotland’s Adventure Coast, Argyll and the Isles this summer.
The 560-mile (900km) journey is a key feature of Wild About Argyll’s Pedaddling campaign, funded by VisitScotland and Schwalbe Tyres UK. It is showcasing the wealth of cycling adventures available to everyone from beginner to expert, across the breadth of Argyll and the Isles, which are easily accessible by public transport.
“I'm really excited to be joining Mark and Markus to explore the boundary of Argyll & The Isles. I think it's the perfect concept to showcase the adventure potential available from your doorstep. Markus and I will be using Scotrail's Highland Explorer carriage for part of our journey, making riding in the wild and diverse area of Argyll all the more accessible. Each time I adventure in this area I'm left with the feeling that I've only just scratched the surface,” Jenny Graham commented.
The adventurers will use their gravel bikes as well as ferries, boats, kayaks and packrafts to travel along the boundary of Argyll and explore its rugged coasts and beautiful scenery in May, June and July, producing short films along the way and a longer documentary at the end of the project.
The journey can be followed on the rider’s social media accounts, with the routes and more information being published on the website below.
