    Past and Present in a Sentence [help needed]

    I am struggling with this kind of grammar. For example, when I am talking to someone about the past.

    Check if this sentense is correct?

    I remember he was teasing Mary in the bookstore and she just slapped him in the crowd.
    I remember when I studied in Berlin, I cycle everyday.

    Please assit!

    I remember when I studied in Berlin, I cycle everyday. Since the cycling was done in the pqst, this verb should be cycled.
