A record-breaking couple plan to ride 48,000 miles through 40 different countries when they tackle their biggest challenge yet.
Kevin and Julie Sanders, who run an overland motorcycle expedition company in Royston named GlobeBusters, aim to complete the longest motorcycle expedition ever attempted next year.
‘Explore our Earth’ would see a group of adventure lovers ride from London to China, Perth to Sydney, Nairobi to Cape Town, Buenos Aires to Bogota and Panama to Los Angeles - taking in six continents, 40 countries and more than 48,000 miles.
Kevin, from Cambridge, currently holds the record for circumnavigating the world by motorcycle in just 19 and a half days.
Explore Our Earth will be the biggest of its kind and will be the second time Kevin has taken on such a journey, having been expedition leader for the 40,000-mile Discover Our Earth trip in 2010-2011.
He said: “Not only does the route deliver some of the most challenging and rewarding riding the world has to offer, including the Pan American Highway and the Silk Road, it also involves riding to more than 4,500m altitude, tackling unpaved roads through Patagonia and crossing the Equator by bike.
“As well as the opportunity to see sights like Zanzibar, The Terracotta Army, Ayers Rock, Lake Titicaca, Machu Picchu and Hollywood.
“Riders can choose to take on the full 40-week route, or join in for one or more of the individual sections between five and 19 weeks.”
