Mcgregor Plans Third And Final Bike Trek

LATEST: Hollywood adventurer EWAN MCGREGOR is already planning his third and final televised bike trip documentary - months before he sets off on his second. The Scottish actor and pal CHARLEY BOORMAN filmed their biking exploits from London to New York, via Mongolia, Siberia and Alaska, for 2004 series LONG WAY ROUND - and now they're planning a second trip from the top of Scotland to the tip of Cape Town, South Africa next year (07). But as the intrepid pals plan to hit the road again for LONG WAY DOWN, they hope to conclude their travels in the Americas with LONG WAY UP - a bike journey that will take MCGregor and Boorman from the southern-most tip of South America up into the United States. And these aren't the only adventures MCGregor is planning - he's also hoping to make the most of his new love for paragliding by jumping off the Munro Mountains in Scotland. He explains, "There're lots of people who make it their life's work to climb them all (284 mountains) - you'd just have to find a really good rucksack for the paraglider."
