The over-planned, over-catered, over-manned way down
on 22 April 2016
Somewhat of a disappointment after "The Long Way Round", the scenery and local people are the stars of this trip. As an adventure, it doesn't work - it's a couple of boyish rich men in expensive gear (even specially-designed helmets) on top-of-the-range bikes with a huge crew in bulletproofed luxury SUV's with a doctor and every possible piece of equipment in tow, so the sense of adventure is obviously lacking. Ewan's wife even joins them at one point. It has its moments, but on the whole the trip is smothered by the enormous crew, and the challenges are manufactured ones. It's almost like a parody of "Long Way Round, too corporate, too "charidee", too many people insulating the lads from adventure.
