||Marcel loves to ride his bicycle
through the streets of his town in France. He makes bread
deliveries for his parentís bakery. Marcel dreams of
riding in the Tour De France, a famous bike race. But,
since the German occupation of his country, all races have
been cancelled. There are soldiers everywhere, stopping
people with their checkpoints and questions. Marcel is
stopped everyday as he makes his deliveries. Then, during
one of his trips, Marcel learns that his family is in
danger. His parents are members of the French resistance,
a group dedicated to defeating the Germans. Marcelís bike
rides became more risky by the day, and soon he will have
to ride to save many more lives than just his own.
