Winner of the Popular Non-Fiction Award at the Galaxy British Book Awards 2008.

The boys are off again this time travelling down from John O’Groats to South Africa. Having learned a few things from their previous journey, Long Way Round, they are slightly more prepared although most of the terrain they are covering is completely different, sand instead of tarmac does not make for an easy ride. Part travel adventure and part a look at the serious work of Unicef in Africa they have written another highly enjoyable book full of the ups and downs of travelling on two wheels through some dangerous and beautiful lands.

Synopsis

Long Way Down by Ewan McGregor, Charley Boorman

After their fantastic trip round the world in 2004, fellow actors and bike fanatics Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman couldn’t shake the travel bug. And after an inspirational UNICEF visit to Africa, they knew they had to go back and experience this extraordinary continent in more depth.

And so they set off on their 15,000-mile journey with two new BMWs loaded up for the trip. Joining up with producer/directors Russ Malkin and David Alexanian and the Long Way Round team, their route took them from John O’Groats at the northernmost tip of Scotland to Cape Agulhas on the southernmost tip of South Africa.

Riding through spectacular scenery, often in extreme temperatures, Ewan and Charley faced their hardest challenges yet. With their trademark humour and honesty they tell their story - the drama, the dangers and the sheer exhilaration of riding together again, through a continent filled with magic and wonder.
