The Bike Detectives


Young Leon is new in town and wants to fit in. He tries to join a local club of self-styled sleuths called the “Mountain Bike Detective Club,” but he’s got a problem—his bike isn’t cool enough for the group and he doesn’t have enough money for a better one. That’s when a mysterious helmeted figure on a motorcycle approaches Leon with an offer to make some money, and Leon just can’t refuse.

Dove Review

Mysterious and fast paced, “The Bike Detectives” is an entertaining story filled with suspense and adventure.

Leon and his family are new in town and he longs to fit in. He wants to join a local mountain bike club, but finds his bike isn’t cool enough to gain him acceptance to the group. When a mysterious, helmeted rider appears from the shadows and offers money toward a new bike if Leon becomes his liaison to deliver a package, Leon finds it hard to resist. However, he soon finds himself center stage amidst a dark story of intrigue and deceit. He slips further into the grasp of the shadowy rider and begins to wonder how he can untangle himself from his influence and grasp.

Peer pressure, friendship and family ties are themes woven throughout this fine film. There is humor and sensitivity as Leon struggles to stay true to himself, his family and his new friends. The storyline offers keen insight into the challenges faced by a young boy who longs to find his place in a new town. Forgiveness, confession and honesty in a difficult situation are handled in a most unexpected way that is sure to surprise. “The Bike Detectives” is packed with adventure as well as strong family values and we are pleased to approve it for viewers ages 12 and over.
