Yes, I have a car.

Yes, I have a car.

Because I ride my bike to work everyday the other associates have a lot of questions. Riding is seen as novel and difficult by my friends there in spite of the fact they say they love to ride their bike.
The questions are:
?Do you ride in all weather?? Yes, except I don’t like cold and rainy.
?How far do you ride?? It’s only four miles here. Uphill all the way but downhill all the way home.
?Don’t you get cold?? My thumbs do but I feel warm while pedaling.
?How old is your bike?? It is twelve years old but I think I am slowly replacing every part.
?Why do you ride? To save on gas?? Seems everyone is thinking of gas prices. I ride because it’s fun, helps me stay healthier and happier, and it’s the right thing to do in a world consuming so much fossil fuels.
?Do you not have a car?? Actually I do.
