When I was young, I lived in a rural town and usually rode bicycle going out. But, now I live in a big city with lots of sloped and crowded roads. So riding a bike is difficult here and only at weekends we have the chance to go out by bicycle; mostly at parks and specified bike areas.

I used to ride a bicycle when I was the second year student at the university. From the third year I rode a motorbike. And I have ridden a motorbike so far. I usually ride a motorbike to go around my city, go from this street to the others. Sometimes I also ride a motorbike to go from the capital to my hometown.

It should be describe for many stages in my life, separately.
When i was a junior high school student, everyday i rode bike to school, which was located near my home with the distance of 3 km. In considering the safety, my school regulated that every student riding bikes to school have to put on a helmet.
After graduated from junior high school, i entered the senior school. In this stage, i did scarcely ride bikes. That is because the campus was far away from where i lived, I took the shuttle bus to school.
In university, it was common that each student transported with their own bike because of the broad campus, especially for the students living in the dormitories near the school.
Now, I ride motorcycle to go to work everyday. Needless to say, it is convenient to move with motorbikes in Taiwan because the distance from town to town is not as far as U.S. or other big countries.

This section wasn't very hard, but it was really helpful.
Thank you, British council.

Weekdays, I use my bicycle for commuting. The road between my job and home is quite overloaded. And cycling is helping me to have exercise, because after 40 exercising is a quite necessary for men's health.

One problem is sweating. So i use a bag for spare t-shirt, and a pant for cycling. Before and after working hours i change my clothes at office. I keep the casuals and cycling clothes in a backpack.

i stop riding the bike in 1990s. my most chances is the names of bike parts

I can bike, but in our city it is dangerous to bike, because there is not special line for bicycle. So i have to go for shoping by bus, or by taxi. When i go in summer holiday Dilijan, it is a small city not far from Erevan, we take two bykes for rent and with my family we byke .

ı go to shopping center by my bicycle 3 or 4 times a week.

My chidhood associated with an old bike. I went to school, visited my relatives and friends by it. There was no brakes , no headlight, the pendal was a small iron bar. I have fallen many times but I still had to rode it because my home was so far from my school. It took about 1 hour and 15 minutes by bike. I even rode bike when I was at high school. When I was at university, I had no bike, I had to walk at the first year, the second year I lived with my friends and they had bikes, we rode bike in all time at university. After graduated, my friends gave them for their siblings. Now I have my job, I bought motobike and no ride bike anymore. when I built my house, there is a wide road in frond of my house, then I think maybe I will buy a bike to do exercise.
