Ewan McGregor Not Allowed On Dangerous Bike Course
However, McGregor, who stars opposite Renée Zellweger in new movie Miss Potter, did not let the set-back ruin his time on the island and opted for a museum visit instead.
He said: "I wasn't able to ride because I'm not allowed when I'm working. But I've had a great time here. I've visited the bike museum - and I've actually bought an old bike to add to my collection."
The Star Wars star famously travelled around the world on his motorbike, with actor friend Charley Boorman, and the adventure was turned into a book and TV show, Long Way Round.
