Parallel World: Mr Sanders is at it again…

He has a brand-new Yamaha R1 which he'll be riding around the world, he's surrounded by pretty ladies and he doesn't have to spend time in office cubicles pretending to be busy at work. Some people have all the luck in the world!

Nick Sanders is already ‘the fastest man around the world on two wheels,’ and he’s going to do it all over again. It’s called the Parallel World, and it’s going to be the 49-year-old Mr Sanders’ last (really?) around-the-world trip on a bike.

Sanders has been crisscrossing the globe since the early-1990s and according to his website, he’s circled our vast planet six times already. On his last record-breaking bike trip, Sanders rode 1,000 miles a day for 19 consecutive days. And if you don’t believe anyone can actually pull that off, go buy a copy of the Journey Beyond Reason DVD.

But coming back to Parallel World, it will entail riding a Yamaha R1 for about 88,000km across six continents, in about three months. So, yes, Mr Sanders will be circumnavigating the world on his motorcycle, using the longest possible route, in the shortest possible time. It’s going to be one hell of an effort we must say – big respect to anyone who can even think of pulling off something like this.

Follow the action on Nick’s blog, and visit his website if you want to order one of his DVDs.

It's insane, but if anyone can do it, it's Nick SandersPic: London Bikers
