Nick Sanders

Adventurer Nick Sanders Sets Off on Around-the-World Fundraising Ride

It will be the eighth time he has circumnavigated the globe on a motorcycle and this latest incredible ride will raise money to support our work.

Awarded an MBE for his services to endurance cycling and motorcycling, Sanders  will collect the honour from Buckingham Palace tomorrow on Thursday 7 October.

Undoubtedly one of the most travelled motorcyclists on the planet, Sanders has completed over a million kilometres on various expeditions.

This time the trip that will take eight months to complete with no back-up other than his mobile phone and a credit card. Sanders will cross some of the world’s major deserts including the Atacama, Great Australian, Gobi, and Thar, as well as a number of famous mountain ranges such as the Himalayas, Andes, Atlas and Urals.

Sanders is using his ride to raise money to support our work. His extensive travels mean he has an insight into importance of the work of Two Wheels for Life.

“Having  travelled the world many times over, one thing that’s always hard to see is people suffering and dying because they don’t have the healthcare we take for granted in the UK.  On my trips I’ve see that transport is a huge part of this.  It’s so unreliable and practically non-existent in many parts of the world, people just can’t get to hospitals or health centres.”

Nick Sanders, Motorcycle Adventurer

The trip starts in New York. Nick will ride a Yamaha Ténéré 700, his chosen bike for this ride, to Heathrow Airport, where it will be flown to the United States.
