DRIVE OR RIDE?
1. Anything with four or more wheels (like a car, a bus, a lorry or a train) we drive;
2. Aanything with two wheels or that we straddle (like a horse, a bike, motorbike or scooter) we ride, (even though you need a driving license to ride a motorbike.
Consider the following:
• 'I had never driven such a powerful car before.'
• 'I hadn’t ridden a bike for over twenty years and wondered if I would remember how to.'
Note that when we are passengers rather than drivers, we ride in cars and trains, but we tend to ride on buses.
