The Great Pebble Creek Bike Race

by Kathy Stinson

Can Matt win first prize in the town's bike race? He thinks so. But Matt has a problem. Mike, David, and Amanda all think they can win too.
Can Matt win first prize in the town's bike race? He thinks so. Not only is he fast, but he's sure he deserves the eighteen-speed mountain bike prize--his own bike is falling apart.
But Matt has a problem. Mike, David, and Amanda all think they can win too. Practising for the race seems to bring out the worst in everyone. Soon Matt and Mike are barely speaking. Can Matt stay friends with the others after the race is over? If he loses, will he want to?
The Great Pebble Creek Bike Race is a fast-paced story about friendship and about the limits of good-natured competition.
