Legendary Adventurer Nick Sanders Launching New Film Soon!

 New DVD is another chapter in the story of long-distance rider Nick Sanders

Published on 10.07.2016

A guy who has circumnavigated the globe seven times on a motorcycle – including once in only 19 days and four hours – and holds the record for the fastest double transit from Alaska to Ushuaia and back is probably someone adventure riders would want to learn more about. With Nick Sanders’ latest movie, “Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man,” they’ll get a chance to do just that when it’s released on DVD in late October.

If you haven’t heard of Nick Sanders, this official trailer for the film serves as good introduction to the world’s most accomplished long-distance rider. If you have heard of him, it will whet your appetite for what to expect from the upcoming film.

Nick Sander Movie


Nick Sanders is a unique guy. As a photographer who worked with him on an earlier project said, “As long as I’ve known him he’s been as mad as a box of frogs.” You’d have to be to do what he’s done.

Before he started riding the globe on motorcycles, he did it on bicycles. Nick Sanders holds a Guinness World Record for pedaling around the globe, once in 138 days and once in 79 days. When he did graduate to motorcycles, he didn’t choose an adventure bike for his travels, at least not right away. He’s done global rides on an Enfield Bullet, a Triumph Daytona, and most famously on a Yamaha R1 sport bike (he now rides a Super Tenere).

If you can’t wait for the movie there’s plenty of other material to keep you occupied. Two other movie trailers are available on Sanders’ website and Sanders has already penned eight books about his life, travels and thoughts, many of which have companion DVDs. He also leads expeditions, including an around-the-world-challenge beginning in January 2017, holds rallies in his native Wales for adventure riding enthusiasts, and recently opened an expedition center near his home to where aspiring riders can get his assistance planning their own adventures.

A Yamaha marketing manager quoted in the film’s trailer put it best: “Nick is a one-man band, he’s the real deal and he can put his hand to do anything.”

Bob has been riding motorcycles since age 19 and working as a journalist since he was 24, which was a long time ago, let’s put it that way. He quit for the better part of a decade to raise a family, then rediscovered adventure, dual sport and enduro riding in the early 2000s. He lives in Arkansas, America’s best-kept secret when it comes to riding destinations, and travels far and wide in search of dirt roads and trails.
