Technologies business creator and owner, world traveler, organizer of different motorsport events, adventurer and member of “Brothers of the Wind MC” (oldest MC in Latvia) since the 1990s, founder of moto-adventure club “apPasaule” (“Around the World”) and “2 Wheels Tutors” movement. He considers his motorcycle the best companion for long expeditions as well as short, local trips and has travelled around the world twice, organized several long term expeditions, reached mountain tops up to 6300m high, made movies, photo exhibitions and written books about his adventures and experiences on the road.
With over 100 countries visited in his trips, there is no way of stopping him from organizing and taking part in new expeditions and moto powered world exploration adventures.
He is famous for creating an additional value to his expeditions by letting Latvian pupils take part in these tours and giving them a chance to plan the routes and come up with tasks for motorcyclists to do on the road. Mārtiņš and his expedition partners make photos and videos from expeditions to each school who has given a task for them in the particular country. Students get an interesting, up-to date and on experience based information about traveling, geography and world events. That makes their studying process more exciting and gives an example of how they can influence big expeditions like these and get the best out of them for themselves. 2 Wheels Tutors visit the schools with their stories afterwards and meet the students, who have taken part in the expeditions remotely. Work is still being done and ideas discussed of how to incorporate the geography material 2 Wheels Tutors have into official school programs.
Mārtiņš is also the owner of Two Wheels hotel in Riga- a hotel and cozy bar that welcomes anyone who drives on two wheels and wants to meet like-minded people.

These trails can be shut or permanently closed at short notice under local law. Do not ride trails beyond your capability. If unsure, get off your bike and walk the trail first. Trail riding alone, especially on trails you do not know is really unwise. Wear the proper safety kit. Many country trails are rarely maintained. You will find ruts, holes, floods, treacherous surfaces and the occasional booby trap hazard deliberately placed by people who do not like motorcycles using trails. When you use the trails, you are on your own. You exercise your judgement in your own skills and your own navigation. All we can do is show you where some of the trails are, but this can change at a moment’s notice.
