Hey! I think it's It takes me nearly one hour and I'm not sure about other stuff because I'm not the best in grammar either.
Some mistakes like my my and the small I in the beginning but that's probably just accidentally.

I haven’t ridden bicycle since 2016 and motorbike six months ago.

While I was a student, I rode bicycle every day, almost one or two hours per day, it was amazing because I could do exercise, enjoy the scenery and used efficient transportation.

During 2015 to 2017 we had a motorbike and rode from our home to my office from Tuesday to Saturday and we traveled on weekends to different small-towns. Sincerely when the traffic is so crazy in our home city we have missed a motorbike and bicycles.

I often ride motobike every day. I wear helmeet on the road. I use it to go to buy some things at the surpermarket, ride on the street to see sights. There is a headlight, chain, tyres, spokes, handlebars, brakes, saddle on my motobike

I’ve been riding by bike to my work since 2009. I do it regardless of the weather also when is raining or snowing. I live in capital of my country so all of roads are prepared to ride. I've been riding also on weekend sometimes. In case weekend it was about 80 km long trip across local forests.
I love do it. Everyone on my work know about it and sometimes when once or twice in year I leave my bike in home I've been a lots of queries from surprised colleagues.

Hello Daniel Tomasz,

Good for you -- keep it up!

Hi again,

The chain comes off mean that it outside of the gear, is that right?
Thank you.

Hi Kenny Alan,

When the chain comes off it means that it is no longer in the right place around the cogs, which are part of the gear. If you do an image search for 'chain comes off bike' then you'll see examples of this.

Hi team,

I practice the vocab exercises, I remember the word at the time I do. But after two days, I forget it. I have to review it every day, and this can be a serious problem when I learn a lot of new words. Could you give some advice?

Hi Kenny Alan,

One key to remembering vocabulary is repetition, so it's good that you are going back and looking at the items regularly. However, this is only one aspect. You also need to use the items - this will help to reinforce them in your memory. Try to use new items, even if it is only in sentences you make up and say to yourself as you go about your daily business. When I was learning a language I used to speak to my pet cat, who was a very patient listener! Using words really does help with the memorisation.

You can find some more advice on vocabulary, as well as other aspects of learning English, on this page.
