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.

A laugh out loud read

My 30 minute lunch sitting in my van won’t be the same now I have finished this hilarious book. If you like an easy lighthearted read, then give this book a go. If you can imagine what two guys would say and do when left to complete a long journey by themselves, then you get the idea of this book. Lots of blokey comments and silly things that only two friends could get away with saying to each other. I admire them immensely for what they achieved, I for one wouldn’t have the brass neck to get away with what they did. Loved it so much, I shall buy more of George’s books right away.

Exactly how every travel book should be written. The humorous approach to dealing with the entropic nature of travelling, and the issues arising from travelling with a friend keeps you gripped throughout the book, as though you are right along with them, rife with uncertainty as to whether you will have anywhere to sleep that night, or food to keep you going. This book goes a long way to highlight human nature and generosity, but it also does so much more. This book inspires you to go forth onto your own adventure, to enjoy the journey itself and not to worry about the destination; to finish the journey, or not to finish the journey, it doesn’t matter, you will see along the way what you need to see and journeys seldom go truly to plan. Upon finishing this book I immediately purchased others written by George Mahood, and expect them to meet the high standards set by this read.

Puts the faith back into human nature.

Good book. Easy reading to pick up as and when. An amusing journey from Lands End to John O’Groats in the company of a couple of blokey blokes who set off on a challenge with no real planning, foresight or clothes. Top and bottom is they encounter some of the weirdest and kindest people that the UK has to offer. This book will crack you up in places and it is the sort of challenge that many would not dare to take. It is an uplifting read as in these troubled times that Brits will go the extra mile to help a stranger, often for no other reason than they think your are off your rocker. It also confirms that good manners and a winning smile will get you a long, long way.

An interesting way to attempt Land’s End to John O’Groats…

People do the strangest things but in doing so, they uncover the genuine support of the general public who will rarely fail to help them out where required. Attempting to cycle the Land’s End to John O’Groats trip is nothing new but by starting with absolutely nothing – no money, no food and not even the required bicycles – the pair face an uphill challenge from the start. Luckily they do have a pair of patriotic boxer shorts each to spare their blushes.

Best of British….

This is one of the most entertaining books I’ve read for a long time. A slightly bizarre idea, maybe more than slightly, but the generosity and spirit of ordinary folk was a joy to read.

Brilliant

This is one amazingly funny account of two great guys and their adventurous cycle through Britain and the people they meet on their arduous journey. It is so well written and I felt as though I was on journey with them and truly wished I had been there with them and was rather envious of the fact that I wasn’t there. I loved the rapport these guys had, they complemented each other with their friendly wit and banter. I haven’t stopped telling my family and friends that they must read this guarantee them that they will not be disappointed.

Not a penny for your thoughts.

This was a brilliant read and it really wakes you up to the beauty of our land and countrymen. I am a 65 years old retired lorry driver and I have driven the length and breadth of Great Britain but never managed to have as much fun as these two chaps.Good on`em. Goldrosperman.

Loved reading about the adventures of these two

Loved reading about the adventures of these two. I’ve always believed in the good nature of the majority of people and here they proved it. As a walker I enjoyed hearing of their travels through the length of Britain.

Brilliant Book.

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.
