About Nick Sanders
Nick has been riding motorbikes since he was 16 years old. Since 1992 when he first rode around the world on an Indian Enfield 500cc ‘Bullet’ he has been riding professionally ever since. His expeditions culminated in an historic re-capture of his solo circumnavigation by motorcycle on a Yamaha R1 in 19 days. Over the past 7 years he has motorcycled around the world 4 times, on three occasions riding over 30 000 miles. On the second of these adventures he led a group of 22 riders across 17 countries and 5 continents.
In 1996 Nick rode the length of the Americas from Ushuaia to Fairbanks in 30 days as a training run for his first speed circumnavigation a year later. Subsequently he has ridden up and down the Alaskan Highway 8 times, taken groups of riders on his tours to North America, Europe, India and is one of only two motorcyclists ever to guide riders around the world, the Holy Grail of motorcycle touring.

Nick Sanders writes about Phoenix Trailers……..
“Before I left for Timbuktu, I looked around for a trailer that could carry up to three bikes along what I knew has one of the worst roads in the world on it’s route. If we hadn’t got the right support there, we’d be 8000 miles away from home and in a right mess. John at Phoenix asked me to road test one of his trailers and it was great. It passed the test. For ordinary roadwork I wouldn’t hesitate to use a Phoenix trailer. After taking it to Timbuktu, it’s got to be pretty good. Thanks John.”
