    to freewheel versus to ride a bike without holding on to the handlebars

    Hello again!

    To freewheel means to ride a bike without having to pedal to propel oneself.

    To ride a bike without holding on to the handlebars means what it means, namely, to ride a bike without keeping your hands on the handlebars.

    What is your opinion.

    Thank you.

    I agree entirely with your opinion. I think there is a word for cycling without your hands on the handlebars but I can't remember it at the moment!

    Edit - I could be wrong about there being a word for it. Google has only been able to come up with "cycling no-hands/handed" or "no-handed cycling".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
