"…one of the most heart-warming, genuinely funny books I have read in a long time…"
"…not many books keep me up ’till 4am, endangering my marriage in the process… Read it now…"
"…for the price of half a pint of beer you’ll fill at least 4 pint glasses with tears of laughter…"
The plan is simple. George and Ben have three weeks to cycle 1000 miles from the bottom of England to the top of Scotland. There is just one small problem… they have no bikes, no clothes, no food and no money. Setting off in just a pair of Union Jack boxer shorts, they attempt to rely on the generosity of the British public for everything from food to accommodation, clothes to shoes, and bikes to beer.
During the most hilarious adventure, George and Ben encounter some of Great Britain’s most eccentric and extraordinary characters and find themselves in the most ridiculous situations. Free Country is guaranteed to make you laugh (you may even shed a tear). It will restore your faith in humanity and leave you with a big smile on your face and a warm feeling inside.
