To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Long Way Round we have created a limited edition t-shirt.
In 2004 Ewan and Charley embarked on an epic Long Way Round challenge, to bike 20,000-miles, cross 12 countries and 19 time zones in just 115 days. Riding their BMW GS R1200s, they crossed Europe, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan and Mongolia to ride the Road of Bones through Siberia, over to Alaska, through Canada, North America and finished in New York. The Long Way Round journey would challenge their view of the world and also test their physical endurance.
Get your shirt here in the Long Way Round store.
Many of you have asked if you can watch Long Way Round on iTunes…well now you can! We are very pleased to announce that you watch the series on iTunes in the UK and USA. We hope to get it on in other countries soon and will update on this blog.
Long Way Down is now airing in the USA on Halogen TV. The weekly spot is Fridays at 8/7c.

Long Way Down is now showing in the USA on ESPN Classic. The 10 part series starts on 18th January at 11pm EST.
Watch Ewan and Charley on this 15,000-mile journey 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, they faced their hardest challenges yet. They rode through Western Europe and East Africa, once again mixing their love of motorcycles with the irresistible lure of far flung roads on the ultimate expedition.
Long Way Round is back for another broadcast. We have many fans in Australia and the show is coming back due to popular demand! The series starts on Wednesday 11th May 2011 on Network Ten (One HD) at 7:30pm. It will be shown every week at the same time.
Brand new Long Way Round t-shirts available now on the Long Way Round website store.
We were getting many requests from fans for new t-shirts so Charley wanted to design some for himself, with the help of Phillip Harkness (formally of Mambo t-shirt design).
“We just spent the last couple of months designing this t-shirts inspired by our trip and love of motorcycles and both Ewan and I are very excited about the result and we hope you guys like it as much as we do”. Charley Boorman.
