Bike was a popular traffic tool before.In past time,so many people ride the bike and they enjoy themselves.Now,many people drop the bike and buy a car.The car is more comfortable than bike,the people in it can enjoy themselves good. Do you still have the habit of riding bike?

Yeah,,. I really love to riding bike since when I was kid. Now in our place most of them are ride the bike and enjoy their life. And I use to go wherever I feel like to go and also it is the mode of exercise.

I didn't much have enjoyed riding bike when i was young, because back then my family can't afford one for me, but when i turn at my teenage life they bought a bike for my younger brother and from that day i started the habit of riding bike. Unfortunately my younger brother's bike now is not appropriate for our body, its so small for us now, and we decided to sell it. I do miss riding a bike. Thanks for this topic and much respect.

not anymore. i used to ride bikes for fun when i was a kid. during the afternoons, my brother and i (and sometimes with our friends) would ride our bikes around the village. i never used a bike as a mode of transportation though. my mom would never let us go out of the village in bikes.

Hi, llbo1981. I have not rode a bike since I was about 10 years old. I am 31 now. I loved riding my ten speed bike. Many people prefer to have a car because it gets them by faster than a bike does. There is so much that can fit into an car that can't fit at all on a bike. A buggy in the front of the bike can only do but so much. Having a car is a must nowadays.

Hello llbo1981, I do like riding bikes escpacially when I was kid. Now I do not because the drivers in cars can be crazy or not see you even when you where bright colors. Drivers these even use the shoulders to pass people because the do want to wait and where the bike riders are. I feel for this group of people because they are obeying most of laws most of time and they seriusly hurt etc... I would ride a bike in park but that means I need a bijke rack and someone to put on my car. Thanks and have a great day! Sincerely unique16

hi lbo1981 ,good discussion. It all depends and differs from country to country. At our place mostly bikes suit - because it is the ride for an average earning person. Mostly average earning persons purchase bikes which is comfortable wherein a family of four can travel easily. Of course as you say car is most conformable and relaxing but all cannot afford that.

i agree with you in these days people don't really think about the how much a car pollutes the air,if everybody had a car the world would bee a better place

i love riding the bike but i don't have one. when i was in japan, my cheap 2nd-hand bike was really handy. i use to go to the library, to the station, or to go around my area. i don't think people can just substitute bikes with cars. bikes are a lot better. gives you a mode of exercise, it's cheap, and doesn't contribute to pollution.
