Charley Boorman in Cape Town: Photos and video
Roy Barford has lived in more than 10 cities and towns around the world, but decided to settle in Cape Town. He loves the fact that he can enjoy both urban and natural adventures every day, surrounded by creativity and tranquility.
He is a sports fanatic who can often be found at Newlands rugby and cricket stadiums, while he also enjoys outdoor adventure activities and exploring Cape Town's vast nightlife options.
Roy has written for publications such as the Sunday Tribune, Cape Argus and the Star, and has also blogged for websites such as Southafrica.net, Tablemountain.net.
Charley Boorman, famous for television shows such as The Long Way Down, led a cavalcade of around 200 bikers from Stellenbosch to Cape Town on July 22.
Cape Town was of course where Boorman and Ewen McGregor ended their famous ride through 18 countries for the filming of Long Way Down in 2007.
The cavalcade ended their journey on Signal Hill and Boorman took time to sign autographs and pose for photos with fans.
Boorman is in South Africa filming his latest show, Extreme Frontiers, which is due for release later this year. Follow Boorman on Twitter for updates.
In the video below, Boorman has some banter with a few local fans who joined him on his ride from Stellenbosch to Signal Hill.
Boorman has been having a great time in Cape Town. In the video below, he previews his trip to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for nearly two decades.
