The united community is always available to guide Ricky on the road to becoming a rescue bike. Whether the help comes from mom or dad, the mechanic or the police bike, Ricky and his motorcycle friends have all the support they need as they learn to ride on two wheels.

The show focuses on friendship, family and learning values that will involve children and parents. “The series really celebrates the fact that we are all so different, but we all have something special to offer,” says show creator Alexander Bar, whose previous children’s TV credits include “Mike the Knight” and “Ranger Bob”. “The series tells the everyday stories of Ricky and his best friends who love going out together, dreaming of being heroes and looking for fun and excitement on every occasion.”
