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.

Good audio performance whiny story

The story is written in a very whiny manor and often I felt that the author was being a dickhead in how they whined and mocked people they met. The continuous snubs at gays and old people, who in many cases assisted them is a snub in the face. The reading was done superbly and was probably one of the only reasons I finished the book on Audio.

Frededick needs this book in Whispersync for Voice

Frederick had a stroke and can not read. He can follow
the text as it is read to him and highlighted by Whispersync for Voice.
This book is a funny true adventure. Please release a Whispersync
version. It lifts his spirit and helps his reading recovery.
