The first in a fantastically fun, magical cycling adventure series from Sir Chris Hoy.

Fergus Hamilton is a boy with a big imagination. Living with his mum and grandad and his dog, Chimp, he dreams of a state-of-the-art Sullivan Swift and becoming the most brilliant boy cyclist in the world. So when he gets a rusty second-hand bike for his ninth birthday he can't help feeling a bit disappointed. But then he discovers something amazing when he takes it for a ride. . .

Written with award-winning author Joanna Nadin, with fantastic illustrations from Clare Elsom.
