The Great Boffo by Frank Dickens
First released in 1973 by Frank Dickens, best known for his long-running Bristow cartoon strip, The Great Boffo tells the tale of a boy who wants to cheer on his favourite cyclist, but first has to complete a delivery round on his old bike. The great Boffo, the idol of cycling enthusiasts, was to pass through a small village in one of his most important races. A small boy who was only trying to help, offered lemonade to the competitors as they pedalled past - and then disaster struck! Boffo suffers a puncture and has no choice but to use the boy’s boneshaker for the rest of the stage and still try to win the race.
