The Best Birthday Bike
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.
The Great Cycle Challenge
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. . .
The Big Biscuit Bike Off
The Hercules' Hopefuls are through to the next round of the cycling tournament, but there's a big problem. Bruce's Biscuits are expanding their factory - and building over the park where the team train! How can Fergus and his friends hope to stop them? Fergus has an idea, but he'll have to return to Nevermore and summon up the courage to enter King Woebegot's castle. . .
The Championship Cheats
The District Championships are coming up and the Hercules' Hopefuls are nervous. Their hard work and training are about to be put to the test. But that's not the only thing on Fergus's mind. Mum has been acting oddly, and when rival coach Choppy Wallace turns up with an offer that's just too good to be true, Fergus is suspicious. It's high time he got Dad back from Nevermore, but he'll need a little help from his friends Princess Lily and Unlucky Luke . . .
The Winning Team
The Hercules' Hopefuls are going to the Nationals, and not even Wallace's Winners competing too can wipe the smiles off their faces. But then disaster strikes in training. To stand a chance of beating the Velociraptors, the terrifying all-girls speed squad, Wesley and Fergus will need to work together. It's Fergus's biggest challenge yet - well, apart from breaking Dad out of the Dungeon of Despair in Nevermore, that is . . .
The Cycle Search and Rescue
After their amazing win at the National Championships, Fergus and the rest of the Hercules' Hopefuls are keen to get back to training as a team - it was brilliant to lift the trophy alongside the Wallace's Winners, but now that Calamity Coogan and Minnie McLeod are back on form, the two teams want to go back to competing against each other rather than together. But - to everyone's disgust - the Board are adamant: the team that won the Nationals is the only one that can compete in the upcoming Internationals. So in order to qualify, the two teams must work together as a squad.
The Wreck-It Race
Fergus is sure their new coach is going to be his ultimate hero, cycle champ 'Spokes' Sullivan, so when Grandpa introduces Charlotte Campbell, the children are all less than impressed. Charlie is the successful captain of the Paralympic wheelchair basketball team and has some interesting training methods. She gets the team doing yoga and wheelbarrow races, and enters them in the Wreck-It Run, a charity race where everyone creates their own adapted bikes from parts and must compete in pairs. Fergus is sure Charlie is off her rocker - how will this help them get faster for the International time trials?
Trouble on the Track
It's decision time for Fergus and the rest of the squad. Training together has been going well but the International Championships are nearly here, and it's time to name the four riders who will be in the starting line-up. The coaches decide the only fair thing to do is hold official trials to decide who's in - and who's out. It's neck and neck for Fergus and Daisy after the Keirin and the road race . . . and with just one race to go, tensions in the teams are riding high. . .
