As Wilfred Simpson and his fiancée, Phyllis Jenkins, are leaving choir practice, they are approached by Harry St. Clair, a trick cyclist who wants to retrieve his bicycles from the railroad station where Wilfred works as a clerk. At the station, St. Clair takes advantage of Wilfred's preoccupation to walk Phyllis home. Wilfred is furious when he finds out and takes out his anger by hissing at St. Clair's performance the next evening. St. Clair challenges him to do better, and when Wilfred accepts, St. Clair once again vanishes with Phyllis. Mabel, St. Clair's assistant, jealously misleads Wilfred into believing that St. Clair has run away to marry Phyllis. Wilfred rouses the entire town to stop them, looking extremely foolish when they are discovered talking on the Jenkins' front porch. Embarrassed, Phyllis breaks her engagement and Wilfred announces that he is leaving town forever. On the road, he collides with Clinton Hemmings. Clinton plans to enter the Six Day Bike Race and Wilfred signs on as his partner. While working for a messenger service, Wilfred delivers a meal to St. Clair's hotel room. Imagining that the woman in the room is Phyllis, Wilfred punches St. Clair and is arrested when she turns out to be Mabel, St. Clair's wife. It appears that the jailed Wilfred will miss the race, but he is bailed out by a repentant Phyllis and arrives at the velodrome at the last minute. The race ends in a showdown between St. Clair and Wilfred. Despite several setbacks, Wilfred and Clinton win the race. Wilfred and Phyllis get married and soon their bike rides include their baby son.
