Kluang OCPD Asst Comm Muhamad Laham said the cyclists, aged between 10 and 12, were detained for riding dangerously under an operation codenamed "Op Basikal Lajak".
"Initial investigations showed that the underage cyclists were using several roads as their racing tracks,'' he said in a statement.
ACP Muhamad said police also seized their bicycles in the two-hour operation from 5pm to 7pm.
He said the parents of the children were called to the Kluang district police headquarters and stern warnings were issued to the cyclists.
The case is being investigated under Section 112 (3) of the Road Transport Act 1987.
