adventurer nick sanders made an MBE

Adventure rider Nick Sanders was made an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list for his services to endurance cycling and motorcycling. Sanders has been an adventurer for 33 years and was the first person to undertake endurance motorcycle and cycle rides “against the clock”, recording and documenting the journeys for books and film.

In 2005 he completed a world record motorcycle circumnavigation of the world in 19 days and four hours. He has ridden around the world seven times and rode a motorcycle the length of the Americas eight times and currently holds the record for a double transit from Alaska to Ushuaia and back which took 46 days.

His journeys have been documented in more than 70 television programmes and he has written an autobiography.
