long way down

Postby tt » Wed Dec 24, 2008 9:25 pm

hi all,

did any of you see the "long way down" show tonight on SBS where they came across a lone English cyclist riding through the desert somewhere(sudan?) in Africa?

I didn't catch where said he's going to, but apparently he left England 13 years ago! What amazed me was that these two guys was struggling with their motobikes with escot/backup and everything the the cyclish is all by himself...bloody amazing...i do wonder where he's up to now...

I have the DVD's of the series, I'll look it up tomorrow when I have a sec.
I ride, therefore I am.

Yeah I did - I wanted to know more about the cyclists and less about those rich kids and their support crews and big dollar backing. Ewan Magregor is tolerable - but Charlie Boorman I want to back over with a bus. He is just a whiney, spoilt rich kid imho.

:lol: That dude was called Jason Lewis and he had been circumnavigating the glode by human power (might be on his second trip) for 13 years.

Used a paddle boat to leave Portugal to get across the Atlantic.

I do think he was certifiable, though it was funny when they were complaining about how tough it was on their motorbikes and the suspension was buggered and this dude is on a beater towing a BOB :lol: :lol:
