    Re: bicycle

    What did you think might be wrong with them?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I think ems was asking why you were in doubt, or in what way were you in doubt. What was the grammatical point which you weren't sure of?

    Re: bicycle

    Two people can ride a tandem.
    One person could ride a bicycle while the other person balances somewhere on the bicycle but they can't both pedal.
