I used to ride bicycle four time a day when i was in high school. The bike is a white mountain bike, which is really fit for the worse road condition. Although it has thick tyres, they were punctured several times.

However, nowadays, i usually ride the public bicycles to go out. In the city i lived, the public bus card could be also used for public bicycles. The first hour will not charge any fees. By that means, as long as i return the bike before one hour, there will be no money deducted( ps, there is a CNY 200 deposit). Meanwhile, i don't need to worry about the lose of my bike.

But there are still several disadvantages of riding public bikes. Firstly, it will be hard to find a bike, or get a vacant to return the bike in the peak hours. In addition, the condition of the bike is various. For instance, people need to raise or lower the saddle according to their height; Some bikes' brakes are loose.

So i feel that it is might better to choose the transportation tools more flexible.

I really want to ride a motorcycle but I am so scared because I may not control myself to go slower. I like fast. I think biking is safer for me. I use helmet also when I am cycling. Once upon a time that helmet save me from the car crash. And once my tyre had a flat. While cycling I always switch on the headlights to see clearly. And I carry with myself air pump.

I can't ride bicycle because I can't manage to keep the balance. I tried learning to ride when I was young. Once I tried learning to ride bicycle in a basketball court, but I hit one of the four poles in the court. It was really a traumatic experience. Since then, I just give up to try.

I used to ride a bicycle when I was a child. And now I have an opportunity to ride a motorbike almost every day because I live in Asia now. It’s the most popular type of transport here.

Hi Shiiya,

I'm sorry about this and thank you for reporting this problem to us. I will look into it, though with the weekend approaching, it may take a few days for us to fix this, I'm afraid. I'll post a comment here, though, once it's been fixed.

Thanks again for taking the time to tell us about this.

All the best,

I used to ride bikes two times a week to go to school and back to the living place when I was a junior high school student. After graduation, I hadn’t ridden it again till last year. Now the public bicycles are really convenient tools to hang out with friends on weekends.

I used to ride bicycle once/twice per week to go to shopping mall and gym near by my house. I really love to bike. I prefer riding bicycle than taking public transports like MRT, Bus. :-)

I ride my bicycle every weekend around my city in the countryside about thirty kilometres. And then I put my track on for analysis.
