A penniless bike ride through Britain. Two men - 1000 miles.
No money, no bikes, no clothes and no clue.
The plan is simple. George and Ben have three weeks to cycle 1000 miles to the top of Scotland. There’s just one small problem… they have no bikes. Or clothes. Or food. Or money.
Through the course of their epic journey they are clothed, fed and sheltered by the generous people of Britain; from llama farmers to onion farmers, students to lifeguards, a former rock-star to a former hit-man… and Michael Eavis in a pair of hot-pants.
During the most extraordinary of challenges, George and Ben sleep in a canal boat, a posh hotel, an empty house, a pub, a tent in a car park, a greenhouse, on a student’s floor and in a barn with a bull. They blaze a trail of open doors and warm hospitality the length of this green and pleasant land.
It takes an adventure such as this to prove, that - both monetarily and opportunistically - Great Britain is... More > undoubtedly a Free Country.< Less

A great book which tells the tale of 2 young men on a journey to explore both the country itself and the personalities of its inhabitants. George Mahood is a new author with a natural flair for storytelling. He writes in a style which is both lighthearted and heartwarming and leaves you feeling inspired to take up a challenge of your own - albeit something that might offer more creature comforts! I look forward to his future work.
