Publisher's Summary

The follow up to best-selling audio Three Men in a Boat, Three Men on the Bummel features delightful, gentle, comic writing. First published in 1900, the story revives the three companions from Three Men in a Boat, this time taking them on a bicycle tour through the German Black Forest.
Written during the Victorian era bicycle-craze, it is a light-hearted commentary on German culture at the time, told through the eyes of the hapless British tourist. The narrator fills us in further: A "Bummel" is described as a journey, long or short, without an end, the only thing regulating it being the necessity of getting back within a given time to the point from which one started. Sometimes it is through busy streets, and sometimes through the fields and lanes.

I'm sure the story is good

Sounds like it was recorded in a bathroom and I can hear the narrator's lips. I can't focus on the story because the audio quality is so poor.
