Publisher's Summary

The plan is simple. George and Ben have three weeks to cycle 1,000 miles from the bottom of England to the top of Scotland. There's 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 extraordinary of challenges, George and Ben scavenge through rubbish bins, search for the Loch Ness monster, wash dishes, clean hotels, sing Christmas carols for food, swim in lakes, descend Cornish hills on children's bikes, and cook a barbecue for 30 old people in a field. They spend the night in a greenhouse, a canal boat, a posh hotel, an empty house, a pub, a tent in a car park, and a barn with a bull.
Through the course of their hysterical journey, they are clothed, fed, and sheltered by the generous people of Britain.

Hilarious adventure!

Just listened and followed the route in Google Maps. Even marked some places to visit. So much laugh and so many unbelievable meetings, pure kindness. And of course the main thing - I wondered so many times when they end up continuing solo but they never did, stayed together until the end in John o' Groats. Great fellows and great adventure!

One of the best books I've read/heard in a long time. Had me giggling throughout the work day.
