Having both would be nice but, I would prefer a bike as it is more convenient and environment friendly (^_^ ) I guess I would get those mountain bikes that you can adjust the speed and with good places to store things in case you have to bring items along..

Would ordinary bikes be available then...? Then again, perhaps unicycles are also known in your country? It seems interesting to know how to unicycle.. unicycles are not popular here though..

When I was young and strong I rode a bike. It was nice to be in the fresh air. However, I lived then in the desert southwest and there was only a very short season where riding a bike was comfortable; most of the time it was unbearably hot and I would have to change my clothes and wash off the sweat most of the time. Now I drive a car because my body is old and everything hurts. I'd love to ride a bike again, especially because I now live in a climate that is not hot all the time. Enjoy your bike while you can!

My teenage boyfriend had a bike and I just loved it. It was easier to get around in the big city we lived in. Now I am older with three children in a rural community in Eastern Canada where we have snow for 6 months of the year and I would pick a car now because of the harsh weather we get here. Though there are many here that have atv's to get around easily, I would find them cold and not practical for my family. If I was single and in a warmer area I would pick a bike all the way.

bikes are fun to ride on bike trails but lots of work when you have little children with you. sense i have three children i would have to say a car is the best for me.i would not get around very well with them with me if i did not have a car.and the weather is a nother facter where i live it snows a lot so i dont think the bike would work for me at all.

yes they are maybe some day they will change things and make cars that do not run off of fuel. and find other ways of making them cheaper for us to own. but we all know there will always be a tax.

Hi, chimrani! If I could ride a bike being a woman, I would so. I may look a little silly doing it. A bike is faster in moving to me. But to have a car, is just what I need. I have more space to put many things in my car. I can take my kids with me. I am covered up from the rain. I sometimes feel that a bike is great to have when you want to take yourself to school and to the library as well.

i will choose car of course, car would be useful everywhere. I can use it for office, for vacation purposes, for everything. It has seats available for family use, or friends and even guests. Only 1 or 2 person in a bike and if it will compare to transporation safeness, car is safe because its balance and a 4 wheeled vehicle, bike is not, its like a motorcycle, it can easily out of balance when the road is rough and the street is slippery.

Yes,i agree with you that it is more safer than bike because it maintain balance on four wheels.

i have a bike and a car. i use the bike more often for i use it on errands that i need to do. i only use the car when i will go out with my family. i can not let my child sit on the bike with me plus my wife. so the bike and the car has different purpose for me. i want also my child to learn to ride a bike when he is much older. i mean a bicycle not a motor bike.

I want to have them both. If I will have both of them, then I will drive my car if I know that I need to take some friends with me. I will take the bike if I need to ride solo, and if the weather is good, and the road is not dangerous because driving in bike in the winter is extremely dangerous.

I don't have a petrol or disel vehicle yet. Guess, if I would have that much money, I wouldn't have been here! I have my bicycle with me and looking to buy a battery bike too. You know yo-bikes.

Here having a car costs much more. First of all, you have to pay different kinds of taxes, increasing gas price, fixing cost etc. Especially it is not very easy to find a parking place and this charge will be a lot every month. So I won't consider to buy a car in the near future. As even if I take taxi all the time, the cost won't be so large anyway. I love China

Be it car or bike, they are just modes of transportation.. But for convenience wise and money, bike is much more cheaper as compared to cars.. But when it comes to usage, cars will be a much better choice because it has got more seating space.. ANd when one has got a car, they can drive the whole family to their destination ^_^ ON top of that, car is safer than bikes ^_^
