Monday 19 September 2016

In my mind I’ve been planning the ride to the North Pole, for many years now. It will become a huge challenge, especially financial. The necessity of a guide, fuel and supply droppings and a plane or helicopter having standby for evacuation in case of emergency adds up the costs enormously.

Before searching for finances, I wanted to get things arranged, the right people on board and be sure that the adventure is going to take place. By doing so, I struggled to get this project going and thought: what the heck, do it like your previous adventures, let’s just start!

And that’s what I did. Thanks to the support of Motorhuis Felix & Jos, a motorcycle shop in Belgium, I got a donor R1 and now the project starts growing. I’m sure the bike that I’m building is capable of getting to the North Pole. I can’t guarantee if I’ll ever make it there. That is up to conditions which I don’t have control of, but you know me 😉 I’ll do my utmost to fulfil my biggest dream. My previous adventures have proven that if there is a way, I will find it! If I can’t go to the North Pole I will go to the South Pole… first! One thing is for sure, a big adventure will take place!!!


You can take part in that adventure. By supporting me you get your name/club/company/logo on the Supporters Flag that I take with me. During every special occasion and of course when reaching our final goal, I will take a picture and send it to you digitally. This way you symbolically travel with me wherever the next adventure will bring us.

Our first goal is the build of the North Pole Motorcycle. Via the next options you can take part!

How to get the insane idea to take a bike and ride to the north pole!
Marcus Kingma
created a great movie that explains very well how it all started in 1992 until where we are right now!

Nathalie, a good friend of mine, joined me during a two week bike trip to Bulgaria last year.
This year we will go for a longer and further away adventure.

Saturday 12 May we will leave for Russia and beyond, most likely passing through Germany, Czech Republic, Poland and Baltic States.
While on the road I plan to give presentations about my travels for bike enthusiasts. Are you interested? Drop me a line. We might pass your doorstep!

And guess what bikes we are going to take!
