The second in Sir Chris Hoy's fantastically fun, magical cycling adventure series.

Fergus Hamilton lives and dreams bikes and is really excited about training for the Great Cycle Challenge with his friends. But he's also got a secret. If the pedals on his bike spin backwards, he's magically transported to to Nevermore, where cycling is banned and his dad is a prisoner. Princess Lily wants to help, but first they'll need to brave the spooky abandoned Bicycle Graveyard. . .

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

"Champion cyclist Chris Hoy breathes his passion for cycling into this entertaining and imaginative adventure about an ordinary boy and his big cycling dreams." The Guardian

Absolutely love these book by Chris hoy. The front cover is fun so my son got into it without opening the cover. Love the little boy tegus who is mad about his bike and cycling, but also the relationship explored between him and his also mad about biking grandad. Grandad ends up being coach to an unlikely team for a cycle race to beat the favourites..... running alongside this story line fergus gets transported to a magical world in hope to find his dad where his bike has magical powers. My son loved this book to the point that we have ordered more from the series.

The second in a very formulaic series. Fergus is struggling to create a cycling team. His grandpa is a great coach and encourages them all the way. Poor mum is very overworked to support the family and in the middle of all this real life Fergus has the ability to transport himself to the magical world of Nevermore in his quest to find his Dad. My son seems to really enjoy these stories.
