What do you call the act of riding a bicycle?

In English, but if you speak another language you can mention what you call it. In Dutch we call this "fietsen".

  • In French it's either "pédaler" which means to pedal, or "faire de la bicyclette" which means to do the bike lol.

    • Goed, met jou? :) Are you learning Dutch?

      I call it cycling as well, but I've heard "biking" being used a lot.

    • Something to do with the Police hopefully.

      I'd love to be a crime investigator, but based on research, I'll be on the beat for a couple years.

    • I really like reading crime novels, but that's about as close as I've gotten to that. But don't worry, you'll get there!

  • In German it's "Fahrrad fahren" (or more casually you could also say "radeln") but in Switzerland we say "Velo fahrä". The verb is the same but the name for bicycle is different because we have lots of French loan words in Swiss that have been in our language for so long that they are now considered Swiss. One of them is Velo (from le vélo").

  • Any of them. Only A is a little ambiguous, it could mean a motorcycle.
