FREE COUNTRY: A Penniless Adventure the Length of Britain

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.

Hilarious and heartwarming

 on 9 January 2018
By Iain61
I was somewhat dubious about the premise of this adventure – maybe 50 years ago it could have worked but in the uncaring noughties – or whatever you call this decade? Admittedly they bypass most of the big towns on the trip between Lands End and John O’Groats so a cynic can claim that only rural life in Britain is still so heart-warmingly altruistic. Our heroes on their scrounging expedition always manage to find a warm heart somewhere, even if they were pushed to the limits a couple of times. Admittedly some of the food they were offered on the way one could regard as stolen from employers (not by our heroes of course) but generally the friendship, good cheer and trust shown by the vast majority of the people coming into contact with the adventurers was hugely reassuring as well as counter-intuitive in our sceptical world. Although the whole book is hilarious I have to admit to shedding a tear or two at some of the completely unabashed kindness shown. A massive feelgood book.

Best Buy of 2017. Excellent.

This book is brilliant. In fact Amazon will be selling another 20 copies shortly as I have recommended it to family and friends over the last 5 days. Even more touching that one of the chapters is named after my Mum, who helped George & Ben along their way, but never realised they would write a book about it which features her kindness! She found it very funny too and now has a copy at her camping site. Going to buy the follow up book.

Very engaging, funny and quite moving in places,I enjoyed this lads adventure.I think the 2 guys were very brave or foolhardy setting out in just their patriotic pants and nothing else.I have read an account of a guy travelling around the States with no money, but at least he had clothes!Peoples kindness is pretty inspiring and often comes from unexpected sources, and not from the ones you might think would help, like the church guy.I enjoyed this tale, and the style of writing, and humour, and would definately read another book if they have another adventure.

HILARIOUS read.

Adventure, perseverance and belief. Not only belief in their own commitment but belief in our fellow Brits, and of course the good old “Falcon”.

My wife bought me this book for Christmas, I have read many books on the LEJOG genre and this one is by far the best. The beauty is the reader has no idea ( as Ben and George did ) of where the next meal was coming from, where they were going to sleep and often which direction they were going in. This made it difficult to put the book down as the reader was always wondering what was going to happen next.The book was exciting, very funny and gave the reader hope that if they were in the position of having no money there are still many kind and wonderful people throughout the length of the UK willing to help.

One of the funniest book I have read in a long time, wished I had a road map handy to have followed their progress on. only one thing, reading on a kindle I couldn’t see the photos properly. But maybe I’m missing the ability to enlarge them on my kindle

The nearest I have come to a book like this is the one where the guy goes round Ireland with a fridge. Each day you think the author is going to come a cropper but each day it works out.

it is a lsugh out loud book.

When I saw reviews saying laugh out loud book I was sceptical but bought any way . It was laugh out loud , even woke hubby up laughing while reading in bed ! Only complaint was I couldn’t really access photos on Kindle and I dont do Facebook ( yes I know ! ) Have gone on to buy further books. Great read
