I often ride a bicycle. My husband and I prefer riding in countrysides. We wear special sport clothes, sport shoes and helmets. My husband always observes places where we ride and cars in order to prevent any kinds of dangerous situations. We have several types of bikes, but my favourite is mountain bikes.

Every weekend I go to the park with my young daughter to ride a bike for about four hours. She is very good at riding a bike and me too, we enjoy riding together. When I travel to home country, Dominican Republic, I use my motorbike, it's compulsory to wear a helmet but I can say it isn't confortable to ride wearing a helmet because the weather it is very hot at any time and any day of the year, but I know that I have wear it for safety.

When I was younger, I used to ride a bike almost everyday. I was such a reckless driver. As I get older, now I’m scared of a reckless car driver.... Somehow, I rarely ride a bike recently... ;)

I don't have neither a bicycle nor a motorbike at present, but only a car. When I was a little girl, I had a red bicycle; after, when I was young, I've been using my father's bicycle.I like walking now, because my town is above sea level.

I used to ride bicycle when I was young. My father taught me how to ride it. But I could only ride when there was few people on the street or no traffic. Now I am today years old and I have plenty things to do so I rarely ride a bicycle.

I own a motorbike but I'm currently far away from home. When I'm in home town, i always use my private one wherever I go out. I really love riding it. I actually was able to ride since I was a 10 year old boy. In my place, people mostly use motorbikes to get their destination.

Actually,I dont usually ride a bicycle or motorbikes because I cant ride.As I grew up at the city,I dont get chance to ride a bicycle also to teach how to ride a bicycle. That's why I have nothing to describe about riding bicycle or motorbike.

At present, I don't ride any of them. I rode a bicycle years ago. I used to live near the university then, so I rode a bike only when I was with friends to go somewhere, downtown city or some restaurant, etc. I never rode a motorbike and I think I would never dare do so. I'm scared of driving a motorcycle!

I no longer ride a bicycle or motorbike but I used to ride a bicycle when I was young. I would go to the countryside on Fridays. I learnt a lot from this lesson—imagine I didn't know these words and phrases, with the exception of a few ones. Thank you Learn English Team.

I used to ride a bicycle to go to the nearest station and just go around my city. But nowadays I don’t ride a bicycle from fear of recklessness.

Although I like to drive a car, I often ride my sport bicycle to go around city. This helps me to stay physically fit. I am enjoy riding my bicycle and since it has many advance features, it makes riding experience more pleasurable. It comes with four gears system where rider can adjust gear level as per comfort. It also has flexible saddle so I can raise or lower saddle without much physical effort. I don't have to worry about flat tire because it has tubeless system. However, this bicycle requires high maintenance and routine oil spread over chain to make rotation smooth. First rules of thumb, I always put on my helmet before riding it.

I used to ride on my bicycle every evening for leisure. I enjoyed the fresh and cool breeze very much. However, I stop doing that recently due to heavy air pollution which is caused by the released of chemical particles into the air by the factories nearby my area.

I used to ride a bike every day to go to the nearest station. I like to ride it! But I don't go by bike recently because I'm afraid of reckless car drivers in a city and, vice versa, I'm a bit a reckless biker. So I like to ride it in a countryside.

From spring to autumn I usually ride my bike every day. This year, however, I've been using it until mid-January. I go by bike basically everywhere - to my workplace, to friends and family members, to the shops, and I even like riding it aimlessly - just to relax and free my mind after a long day. :) I used to have a motorbike as well for 4 years, with which I used to go to the mountains and also to different bikers' events and festivals.

I use a motorbike to go to work because it is fastest and easiest transport in my area. In morning there is normally a huge traffic jam so if a person use a public transport or his/her own private car needs to get up very early around 4.00 am in order to get in time at his/her working station.
