Renting a Bike 租赁自行车
http://edu.QQ.com  2010年12月30日16:06   BBC英伦网   我要评论(0) 

I'm a high school student from Nanjing. There have been 200 public bicycles put into use in our city since September. However, they are seldom used because of the high price. I know that bicycles can also be hired in London. How can people use them? Has it become popular?

Alice says the bikes available to hire in her city aren't used that much because she thinks it costs too much. She wants to know about the popularity of a similar scheme in London.

London has recently launched a cycle hire scheme where for an annual fee you can borrow a bike for half an hour and drop it off somewhere else.

In general, cycling is becoming more popular in the city. Facilities such as cycle lanes are improving and riding a bike is a quick way to get around. It keeps you fit too!

BBC Learning English hit the streets to find out what people in London thought about the scheme and cycling in general.

Here are some of the words they used.

Quick

Fast

Quite difficult

Dangerous

A good thing
