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. Since 1992 he has motorcycled around the world 7 times, more than anyone in the world, his mileage totalling over 350 000 miles. During this time he led a group of 22 riders across 17 countries and 5 continents, around the world.

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. Most recently he has ridden the length of the Americas a total of 5 times, failing in 2010 to beat the 21 day record by a few hours. In 2011 he will ride the length of the Americas a further 3 times.
