Knights and Bikes


What is your bike like? Would you have the determination to drive a digger over a cliff? Are you strong enough to use every ounce of light  to journey into an undersea cave? Could you stand up to a deceitful ghost?

‘Knights and Bikes‘ is a wild, funny, gripping Cornish adventure. The island of Penfurzy is so creatively realised that we follow its routes and recognise its potential. Demelza knows it like the back of her Game Gauntlet. She loves the island as her mother did. Thoughts that dwindling earnings from their caravan park are forcing her father to sell up, so that they move into town have left Demelza desperate. There must be a way to earn money! Maybe treasure? The treasure of the Penfurzy knights for example? There are lots of local legends about disappeared castles and curses. What might Demelza and mysterious new friend, Nessa, discover?

Poised on two wheels, each girl, one assisted by her pet goose Captain Honkers, is ready for adventure. Here we go, ‘Knights and Bikes’!

Knights and Bikes

(Knights of)

Demelza and Captain Honkers are perfectly set up in their caravan. Therefore, they’re unprepared for a mysterious intruder refusing to share her identity. However, Nessa’s  spirit and determination appeals to Demelza. Furthermore, she is willing to join Demelza’s efforts to stop the sale of her caravan park home. Could the discovery of the Treasure of the Penfurzy Knights help Demelza’s father’s fortune that he doesn’t have to sell the park? It’s all Demelza wants. Her mother was on the hunt for the treasure…. What clues remain?
‘Knights and Bikes‘ is a rip-roaring, amulet armed adventure! I love the Cornish setting- we can smell the sea and hear the conversations!
