Bicycles   

1     Do you know how to ride a bicycle?
 
2     A bicycle is also called a bike. It has a saddle for us to sit on. It has two pedals, two wheels, and two handlebars. To make it move is quite easy. We don't need a key to turn on the engine. We don't need to go to a gas station to fill up the tank. All we need to do is to put our feet on the pedals and begin pedaling. As we move our feet in circles, we make the wheels spin. Then the bicycle goes. Once we start moving, we can use the handlebars to control our direction. If we want to turn right, we turn our handlebars to the right. If we want to turn left, we turn our handlebars to the left. If we want to stop, we press the breaks on the handlebars.
 
3     While this sounds very simple, we still need some practice before we can ride well.
