Flying Fergus is an action-packed series of cycling adventures featuring nine-year-old Fergus Hamilton and his friends as he travels back and forth to a parallel universe called Nevermore, where cycling is banned and his dad is trapped by the evil King Woebegot.

When Fergus gets up speed and spins the pedals backwards on his bike, he can fly through time and space with his dog, Chimp, and land wherever he imagines. It’s thrilling but also a little bit crazy – he meets some amazing characters and does tricks that are out of this world.

Back on the ground in Scotland, Fergus is also number one rider on his grandpa’s cycling squad, the Hercules’ Hopefuls, who are setting their sights on cycling success. They’re out to prove that with hard work and determination, you can accomplish your dreams.
