The autobiography all their fans have been waiting for.
THE HAIRY BIKERS Blood, Sweat and Tyres A Hairy Tale
The heart-warming, funny and engaging memoir behind the best-selling, big-hearted and downto-earth chefs, The Hairy Bikers. The Hairy Bikers are known for their many best-selling cookbooks, including The Hairy Dieters, Hairy Bikers’ Perfect Pies, Great Curries and Big Book of Baking, and now they are here to tell you how it all started. Si King and Dave Myers, aka The Hairy Bikers, have lived life to the fullest. They had fantastically rich northern childhoods, laced with food and fun, but of course with some tragedy too. We get to know the early Bikers – we find out how their friendship developed, and all of the mad capers and round-the-world trips they went on. Perfect for their fans, heavily seasoned with warmth, food, love, bikes and bro-mance, the Hairies never fail to entertain. Si King hails from North East England and is a big, blond bearded biker with an infectious laugh. His love of food was established at a young age when his father bought exotic ingredients back from his Royal Navy voyages. Born and bred in Barrow-in-Furness, Dave Myers joined the BBC as a make-up artist, and while travelling the world with hit TV series picked up recipes with Si, Dave’s travelling companion and the other half of The Hairy Bikers.
