  1. Do you know how to ride a bicycle?

Yes, I do. I learned to ride a bike when I was about 10 years old. And I rode it every day to go to school when I was in secondary and high school.

  1. How often do you ride a bike?

Honestly speaking, I scarcely ride a bicycle these days. My busy lifestyle, the faster speed of motorcycles, and their convenience make me use a bicycle less often. Once in a while or sometimes, I ride a bicycle, and that’s primarily to have fun and not to travel.

  1. How popular are bicycles in your hometown? [Why?]

Well, I would say bicycles were fairly popular in my hometown. They were widely used when I was a child, and I saw so many people using bicycles to reach their destinations.

But motorbikes have become more popular these days and have increased because of their convenience.

However, it’s not a good sign that many young people these days are using motorbikes instead of bicycles to go to work. Because it has a negative effect on the environment.

  1. Do you think that bicycles are suitable for all ages? [Why/Why not?]

Yes, absolutely. I believe that bicycles are suitable for people of all ages. Bicycles are cheap and good for the environment and our health.

Since they don’t require much physical labor,  children, youth, and senior citizens /ˈsiːniər alike can ride them without difficulty.

The health benefits of riding a bicycle are unparalleled,  and that’s why people from all age groups should consider this as a means of transportation.

  1. What are the advantages of a bicycle compared to a car? [Why?]

I reckon that bicycles have far more benefits than cars, except for the fact that a car is faster.

The most important advantage of riding a bicycle is that it can help us stay healthy.

Bicycles have a positive impact on our environment because they do not pollute the air, so they are environmentally friendly.

They are cheap and don’t take a lot of money for maintenance or services, so they’re good for our pockets.

While cars take up more space to be parked, bicycles do not. Considering the environmental effects, bicycles could be a great replacement for cars in our hometown.
