The first trailer for Long Way Up is here…

After months of hype, a look at images from the road, a recently announced premiere date, and even an interview with Charley Boorman (which you can read in issue 59 of Adventure Bike Rider, out soon), we’ve now finally had our first glimpse of the trailer for Long Way Up. And boy, does it look good.

First look at Long Way Up

Immediately we see Charley and Ewan preparing for the trip and, much like the previous Long Way travels, it just had to begin with the symbolic taping of a map on the wall, with red pen highlighting their route from the southern tip of Argentina all the way to Los Angeles in the U.S.

The then trailer teases us with some stunning shots of the trip as the pair ride through Patagonia, before climbing the Andes, and riding into Central America. Alongside the epic riding footage we also get a taste of some of the human encounters they have on the way, which have always been highlights of the previous series.

There are also a few clips that allude to the challenges of riding electric bikes cross-country, including Ewan running out of battery, plug-ins at various locations and, err, shorting the power in a house…
