Setting off in London in April 2004, Ewan and Charley travelled through some of the most beautiful, and at times dangerous, terrain the world has to offer. Crossing over into mainland Europe, they rode through France, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Siberia, Alaska and Canada before arriving 115 days later at their final destination, New York City, USA. This was to be their first epic motorcycling adventure.
Their second was The Long Way Down. Leaving on 12 May 2007, they travelled through Europe and then Africa – from Tunisia to South Africa, via countries such as Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Namibia - a total of 15,000 miles. The team arrived in Cape Town, South Africa on 4 August 2007. As on Long Way Round, they were accompanied by Executive Producers/Directors Russ Malkin and David Alexanian as well as Claudio their main camera man.
During their trips they have raised a lot of money for various charities including:
Unicef - United Nations children's charity
Riders for Health - a motorcycle medic service in Africa
Childrens Hospice Association Scotland - A childrens hospice charity based in Scotland
