About the event
Nick Sanders is best known for his extreme motorcycle journeys. He has ridden around the world 7 times - 2 times of which he can't actually remember. However, this includes two record circumnavigations of the globe, the second time in 19 days 4 hours.
Having also motorbiked the length of the Americas eight times, he presently holds the record for a double transit from Alaska to Ushuaia and back in 46 days. Yet this “ordinary man in his extraordinary world,” as he describes himself in his two autobiographical volumes, also held the Guinness record for bicycling around the world, which he did in 138 days then a second time in 79 days.
After 20 years, he still holds the Guinness Record for cycling around the coast of Britain in 22 days. He has also cycled to the source of the White Nile, across the Sahara to Timbuktu and the length of South America before taking two narrowboats across the English Channel and along the Danube to the Black Sea and back.
Nick has held pilots licenses to fly microlights and hot air balloons.
