Ewan McGregor Biking From Scotland to South Africa
Ewan McGregor, best known for his roles as a young Obi Wan-Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels and as a cheeky monologist/narrator in Trainspotting, has biked from Scotland to South Africa with his best pal Charley Boorman. After documenting the 15,000 mile trip which spanned 20 different countries and took 85 days last year, the pair are releasing it in a 10-episode format on the Fox Reality Channel with new episodes premiering on Saturdays at 9PM ET.
I’ll state for the record that it goes without saying that a 15,000 mile bike trip through Africa is possibly one of the most significantly brutal trips a traveler could take. The series should be an interesting watch for biking and Ewan McGregor enthusiasts alike. It certainly has already been proven that audiences all over the world adore watching this particular man sweat and move around.
