Synopsis

The Great Boffo by Frank Dickens

The Great Boffo is coming to town! A young boy yearns to watch his hero in the big bicycle race, in Frank Dickens' 1973 children's classic. But first he has delivery rounds to make on his old boneshaker. When Boffo gets a puncture, he has no choice but to borrow the boy's delivery bike and try his hardest to win the race ...A classic tale of sporting heroism from the golden age of cycling, which reminds us that, in the immortal words of The Great Boffo, the machine is not as important as the man .
