Meet record breaker Nick Sanders on Saturday August 5th at LlanBikeFest 2017 – just before he sets off on another amazing 15,000 mile adventure, from Ireland to Vladivostok: alone on a Yamaha MT-07 Tracer, with only a tank bag and a tent!
Nick will be giving away videos at LlanBikeFest and signing books on Saturday only, before dashing off for more adventures. Next year he is leading another trip with 10 riders from London to Vladivostok the hard way – via Iran and the ‘Stans. Already fully booked!
Best known for his extreme motorcycle journeys, he has ridden around the world 7 times, including 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.
