Long Way Down
After chasing their shadows across the world, journeying east from London to New York, actors (and bike fanatics) Ewan Mc Gregor and Charley Boorman couldn't shake the travel bug. And after an inspirational UNICEF visit to Africa, they realised their new destination could be nowhere else. With the Long Way Round team assembled once again and with two new BMWs loaded up for the journey, Ewan and Charley are setting off for a very different challenge - the Long Way Down. On this new adventure they will travel from John O'Groats to South Africa: biking their way down through Scotland and England, then travelling into Europe and all the way down to Africa. Visiting UNICEF projects on the African continent along their way, they will come face-to-face with spectacular but unforgiving terrain, with rich cultures and unforgettable local characters. Ewan and Charley will test their endurance, biking skills and friendship to the limits on this amazing trip.
