Bicycles are very popular among students in my city since riding a bicycle costs almost nothing as long as you own one. Bicycle riders are not required to pay any extra charge such as gasoline or parking, which suits students well.
My hometown is located in the mountainous region, therefore bicycles are not that popular as a transportation method. It's regarded as a good way of exercise though.With the effect of fast fat-burning, you can see a lot of people start their workouts on bicycles in town.
Bicycles are still quite popular in my city but I have to say, they're not as popular as they were in the past. People don't hate bicycles, it's just that commuting by bicycles could take plenty of time from home to work due to the expansion of the city size.People would choose other less time-consuming modes of transport such as subway or private vehicles.
How often do you ride a bicycle? (why?/why not?)
The bicycle is my daily commuting vehicle; therefore I ride it on a daily basis. The reason why I choose to be a cyclist is that riding a bicycle is a way of transporting while exercising. I always arrive at my destination feeling relaxed and energized.
Not very frequently. Since I live quite far from company, I have to take subway to work .I ride spinning bike once every two weeks in the gym though, which is a very good exercise.
I haven't ridden bicycles for years. I used to when I was a lot younger but now I just don't have the chance. I've always wanted to start again, at least just on the weekend for relaxation.
Do you think that bicycles are suitable for all ages? (Why/Why not?)
一般问到某项活动是否适合所有年龄段的时候，我们通常要分情况进行论述。通常可 以将人群分为儿童(children)，青年(young people〕和老年人(senior people)。 old这个词在叙述性语言中可以用来描迷老年人，但如果在面对面交流时，可能会让人觉得不够礼貌，可用senior, aged或者elderly。在分析是否适合某类人群这种问题时，可从体力要求，经济条件和影响等方面展开论述。
Cycling can be done by people of all ages, from childhood up through the adult years. It helps increase balance and flexibility and improve muscle strength and endurance. The only problem for cyclists is the air they inhale when riding a bicycle on the open street. So I was told that people with lung disease or asthma are not suggested riding bicycles.
Although bicycle accidents are not usually killing dangers, there are a lot of children sent to the emergency room every day because of bike injuries. Teaching children to ride bicycles safely should be done hand by hand and a safety helmet is required to avoid head injuries. Without these precautions, children should not be allowed to ride bicycles.
Many senior people have impairment, such as reduced sight and hearing, or achy joints. They ate also prone to suffer injuries in a fall, due to their brittle bones. Therefore, senior people should be more careful when riding bicycles and it's better off if they go with a partner or in a group in case of emergencies.
What are the advantages of a bicycle compared to a car?(why?)
在这道题目中，比较级的运用应该得到格外关注。回答时可从能源消耗，使用成本，适用环境及对环境的影响等方面入手，但请注意，在Part 1 字数和时间的限制下，不要面面俱到，点出几个优势之后，针对一个要点进行比较全面和深入的叙述即可。
There're several undeniable convenience factors you’ll discover when riding a bicyce.Parking space is always there for you. Moreover, athough cars will certainly make better time on long trips,you’ll find youself traveling as fast or even faster on bike if it's in heavy traffic.In a word, bicycles are more flexible.
Worrying about the increasing price of gasoline and committing to greenhouse effect, there're more and more people realizing that the bicycle is the ultimate economical and eco-friendly means of transport. Being a cyclist, you don't need to worry about paying for parking, tolls and maintenance cost which could be a huge amount of money.
Riding a bicycle on the street doesn't bring the noise that a car generates. There's no exhaust gas released since no gasoline is consumed. Bicycles are zero-emission vehicles which are often referred to as completely “green".
