The story of three BMX-riding misfit government brats, Maddy, Ben, and Harold, (they call themselves "The Pedal Jumpers") who sneak aboard a government captured alien time machine and inadvertently send themselves back to the Cretaceous period. Sharing in this wild ride through time and dinosaur-filled landscapes is the owner of the craft...a silent alien given the name "Marvin". Not only are our young heroes stuck in a strange place with a strange being, but they are surrounded by hostile creatures and unforgiving landscapes. And, as luck would have it, that's not all. The Pedal Jumpers must fix the broken craft in order to escape the sure-to-be destructive forces of an approaching meteor—the one which spells doom for most living creatures in the Cretaceous period. With a little luck, determination and raw attitude, the Pedal Jumpers must convince Marvin that they have to leave the area before certain doom. Their only wish, to be reunited with their families in the future.
