What is the difference between riding and driving?
The bicycle picked up some terminology from horse riding, so just like you ride a horse (not drive it) you ride a bicycle. It's similar to the way you can drive a car, or drive a team of oxen. Just terminology and tradition.
When you are on top of something, holding the handlebars, or a passenger in a car, it is riding. When you are behind the wheel of a car or controlling a vehicle, it is driving. It really does make a difference!
Drivers are low carb, cyclists carb load!
What?!?!?! ... If you don't know the answer to that, then it's best for you to stay off the drugs!!!
