Nick Sanders will set off on a trip around the world just hours after receiving an MBE from Her Majesty the Queen. Incredibly, it will be the eighth time he has circumnavigated the globe on a motorcycle.
Undoubtedly one of the most travelled motorcyclists on the planet, Sanders has completed over a million kilometres on various expeditions including his round the world trips and numerous rides up and down the Americas.
Awarded an MBE for his services to endurance cycling and motorcycling, Sanders will collect the honour from Buckingham Palace on Thursday 7 October.
The trip will take eight months to complete with no back-up other than his mobile phone and a credit card. He 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 this ride to raise money to support our work. His extensive travels mean he has an insight into why our work is so important.
He’s hoping people will be inspired by his trip and get involved in his mission by donating and following his progress.
Nick will ride his Yamaha Ténéré 700 to Heathrow Airport, where it will be flown to the United States. The trip proper starts in New York
