Bicycle Hills is the fourth book of the Spirit Flyer Series by John Bibee and illustrated by Paul Turnbaugh. The book was published by Inter-Varsity Press in 1989.
The book focuses on the struggles of Amy Burke, a young girl who has recently moved to the fictional town of Centerville.
Shortly after the Burke family moves to Centerville, Uncle Bunkie, the clown, has every child in Centerville buzzing about a new amusement park that has opened just outside town. The park is known as Bicycle Hills, and it contains all sorts of games for anyone who wants to have fun on a bike. There were other games too, like Caves and Cobras, that the children were not supposed to tell their parents about.
As Halloween approached, children and adults begin to wonder if the fun of pretending was getting out of hand. Through the development of the story, Amy is challenged to choose between joining the other children at Bicycle Hills, or embracing her newly discovered friends and freedom with the Spirit Flyer bicycles.
