What Riding means to Me

Riding encourages me to visit the foreshore more often than I would

I cycle; I ride a bicycle; I commute by bike. Call it as you wish. The fact is that I own a bicycle and I use it. I don’t ride it everyday, it depends on the weather but I use it every week. A bike is a simple tool for me, like a mobile phone. […]
