I really love cycling a lot. Especially journeys through the countryside, climbing mountains and having a great view from the top, passing by waterfalls, rivers, where nature is bountiful. I feel stronger and energize compared with cycling through the city. Any Mylotters out there who love cycling, who could share their experience.

I love cycling, too. But I live in a very big city, Rome, so I go out with my bike in the streets of my city. It's very beautiful because I can see the city in another way, it's very difficult to go in some parts of Rome with car. With bike it's possible.

I love to bike too, but I dont have any bike of which I own, I only borrow from friends. there used a time in history when people used bikes to go to office like we use cars or scooters and motorcycles today. In thailand, such as in cities like Bangkok and Chiangmai, women drive motorcycles to work and back, or to other places, or going to parties, In china, there's a plae where only less than 3 percent of the citizens own cars the rest of the people in town ride bicycles, unless they can afford motorcycles or scooters, owning a car would be a dream. In the philippines, the ordinary motorcycle is answer to prayer, or a scare if used by vigilantes or robbers, normally in the basement parking, you see motorcycle owners drive out at the end of the day, while the women wait for their husbands to come by for them, still on motorcycles, there's no building anywhere else in the city without a space for bicycle or motorcycle. but if you cycle a lot, be safe, always wear protective helmets, pads, reflectors, and be seen, only vigilantes drive in the dark.

I also like cycling. I remember I had nice cycling trips in Yangshuo, China. That's a nice place. I enjoyed the cycling journey and I could find many natural and beautiful scenery on the way. It's one of my favorite places.
