When three late-Victorian gentlemen escape from the claustrophobia of suburban life to go on a cycling tour in the Black Forest of Germany, their trip turns into a comic expedition.
Three Men on the Bummel is the story of a Victorian bicycle trip gone wrong—then wrong and wrong again! A trio of British gentlemen attempt a cycling expedition in Germany's Black Forest. Confusion about the differences in language and culture get them into continual trouble, whether it's boarding a train, buying a present for an aunt, or simply trying to get safely from one place to another. Will they ever get back to their own lives—and will they really want to? Reprising the characters from Jerome's hugely popular Three Men in a Boat, this gently humorous book will delight anyone who has ever had an unpredictable vacation.
