Do you like to go on a short trip by bike

Recently, I join a group who enjoy travelling by bike. They come from all walks of life. We often cycle together. And I benefit a lot from it. Today, I would like to share with my ideas. First, it not only exercises my body, but also broadens my mind. Nowadays with fierce competition, I always work at high pressure. So I am eager to relax. When I get close to nature, I will find the courage to overcome the difficulties in both my life and my work. Second, it is fun to cycle with others. They have different backgriunds.By communicating with them, I can learn to look at things from many different angles. It will be valuable for my future life. Third, it is environmentally friendly and energy saving. If more people cycle, the pollution will be reduced. Will you join us?

yeah i'd like to, but i don't know how to ride a bike. haha! i wish i knew how... i like the idea of saving the environment too, but i jsut can't cycle. i mean ive tried u know, many times. since i was a kid. and i'm 23 now. what i do to "contribute" on helping save mother earth is taking the bus whenever i can, not littering, buying environment-friendly products (or so the labels say), and the simplest but the hardest one for most people --- saving electricity in any way i can. gud eve people!

I think thats a really good idea of travelling with friends that too on a bike..i too love riding a bicycle or a bike infact anything it would be i just love riding diffrent places, infact i dont appreciate driving much rather than riding..I wish i had a bicycle rather than a bike and few good old friends with whom i could take the joy of riding bikes all over the woods, smell the mud and become fresh after a whole tired weekdays.As though i do travel through my bike with friends to regular distance that too intrest me a lot but not as good as this idea of yours.

When I was at university I went to study in the Netherlands for four months. I got given a bike by one of the Dutch students. She said that a previous international student that had gone back home had given it to her. I used it to cycle to the university college and it was a pleasant ride down quiet streets and a cycle path. When I had free time I went cycling all over the gorgeous looking countryside. I came home and bought my own 21 gear bike necessary to the hills in m home country. When I taught in some schools in some locations it was such a healthy and good for the environment way to get to work. One of my friends belongs to a cycling group and at the moment they do quite short rides. I think just wait until the summer then they will go on really long and fast rides.
