Nick Sanders expedition centre now open

Round-the-world adventurer and long-time Yamaha ambassador, Nick Sanders, has opened his Expedition Centre at his home in the Welsh countryside. After a two-year build period, The Nick Sanders Expedition Centre opened on 27th September 2013, for riders to stay and ride with the modern day legend of adventure riding, as well as learn from his vast experience.

Nick-Sanders-expedition-centre Between 27th Sep and 31st Oct 2013 there are 8 x 3-day Expedition Centre experiences available, which include 3 night’s full accommodation, breakfast and evening meals all for just £175 (using your own bike).

An experience with a difference
Most riders relish the thought of going on an adventure but often don’t for various reasons; money, family / work commitments, lack of confidence or just plain old lack of knowledge. So, rather than trying to teach riders how to ride, the new Nick Sanders Expedition Centre is focused instead on challenging all those negative reasons, to get riders into the right mind-set to take the plunge and commit to an adventure ride.

Whether you want to prepare for that once in a lifetime round the world trip, refine a journey across Europe or simply plan a ride in the UK, Nick and his partner Dr Caroline Taylor will talk you through your project on a one to one basis – The Expedition Centre could be thought of as a consultation process for your ‘next big step’;

“Everyone can do the ride they’ve always wanted to do,”said Nick, “we can help give you that push to go and make it cheaper and safer.”

With a maximum of 12 people on any one experience, Nick will also personally lead riders across hidden ‘white / unclassified’ roads in Mid Wales and Snowdonia – magnificent roads almost free of cars.

“I know roads you wouldn’t believe existed,” said Nick, “on a good day they are as good as anywhere I have ridden in the world.”

Authentic accomodation
Riders will stay in a mixture of brand new and beautifully appointed Mongolian Yurts, Log Cabins with log burning fires or the support truck that went to Timbuktu, which has now been converted into accommodation. Hot showers and drying rooms are also available.

Meals are included in the price and are of the highest standard cooked by Caroline onsite, using the best locally sourced produce from the nearby town of Machynlleth, as well as home grown herbs and salad vegetables from Nick’s land.
