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.
