A Boy, a Girl and a Bike is a 1949 British romantic comedy film directed by Ralph Smart and starring John McCallum, Honor Blackman and Patrick Holt.[2] The film's art direction was by George Provis.[3] The film concerns the romantic escapades and adventures of a Yorkshire cycling club.


Young couple Sue (Honor Blackman) and Sam (Patrick Holt) are members of a Yorkshire cycling club, the ‘Wakeford Wheelers’. Romantic complications ensue when wealthy David (John McCallum) becomes smitten with Sue, and joins the club to pursue her, much to Sam's dismay.


Critical reception[edit]

The Radio Times gave the film two out of five stars, calling it, "A minor, good-natured British comedy romance."[4]
