The bicycle is a very useful poor man’s vehicle. In our country, where the roads are not good and are very narrow, this is the only means which has access to almost all corners. It is made of steel. It has two wheels. It has a seat and a handle. Two pedals and a bell are also part of it. My bicycle has a carrier too.
I go to school daily by bicycle. It is very useful for short distances. Many of my friends also come to school on their bicycles. In short we call it ‘bike’.
Every day in the morning I clean it and oil it. Its regular care makes it move smoothly and fast. It should be protected from water. Otherwise rust will settle on it.
This poorman’s vehicle can carry two persons easily. One can sit on the carrier or on the rod ahead of the seat and the other on the seat. Its paddles are conveniently located near the feet of the driver. So one can easily paddle this vehicle. It moves at the speed depending on the force it is paddled with.
It is one of my most prized possessions. My Daddy presented it to me on my eighth birthday. It helps me cover distances in short time. I love it immensely.
However, cycle is a good source of exercise specially for lungs, heart and bone joints of the body. There are various cycle sports at national and international level.
