Entrepreneur and world traveler, creator of technology enterprises and organizer of motorsport,
Brother of the Wind since the beginnings of Latvian moto clubs in the 90s, the creator of adventure club «apPasaule» and
2 Wheels tutor’s movement.
Adventurer in the word’s truest sense, while also a committed father of four. Considers motorcycle’s to be his best companion on long routes, as well as short trips.
By looking at his biggest adventures, we see two full trips around the world, a number of other organized large-scale moto expeditions, the conquest of mountain peaks of up to 6300m, the creation of movies, photo exhibitions and a book to summarize the adventures.
Even though he has traveled through more than 100 countries on almost all of the continents, Mārtiņš is always excited to promote adventuring to the younger generations, by considering the added value such experiences would provide to the Latvian society, with the greatest emphasis on the worldviews of the youth still in schools.
As for his friends in Latvia, and kindred spirits from around the world, they are always welcome in Pārdaugava, in his small hotel TwoWheels and its cozy pub, Dēkainis.
The management of several technology businesses and their
development around the world has not dampened the soul of a traveler and an adventurer.
By combining the need to travel for work and relaxation, Juris has to change his passport every few years, to allow place for new stamps and visas.
Juris gladly takes part in trips that operate on gas or diesel. In the last ten years, he has completed bike trips in Southern Europe and the jungles of Laos, all the while exploring parts of Russia and Georgia with jeeps.
A professional explosionist for more than 25 years, and a moto
instructor for 10 years, works every day in both fields.
In 1979, he sat on a motorized bike for the first time.
Since then, he has driven motorcycles around almost all of Latvia, Europe, and several thousand miles around Southern and Northern America’s.
