The sun is shining and today feels like an adventure, only one I can go on whenever I want because I have a bicycle and friends and a city just waiting to be explored.

With their new teacher's help, the kids in Class 5D ride to school together in a bicycle bus. Olivia can fix a puncture in two minutes and Max can ride on one wheel. Lily wishes she wasn't quite so wobbly and Jordi's been waiting forever to ride on the road. Dylan has a speedy getaway from alley cats, Dabir's glad to be part of a group and Zoe's bike even has a name (Esmeralda). Everyone loves their new way of getting to school.

But there's a narrow stretch on Fishers Road with no white line to separate the cyclists from the local traffic, so Zoe and Max decide they need to make it right (even if that means breaking a few rules).

Award-winning author Steven Herrick's latest verse novel is an ode to bike-riding, the environment and fixing the future.
