Examples of riding in a Sentence

  1. President Trump:

    You know, I had a situation when I first became President, we had certain areas of Washington, DC, where that was starting to happen, and I ended it very quickly. I said,' You can't do that,' when we have leaders of the world coming in to see the President of the United States and they're riding down a highway, they can't be looking at that.

  2. Ryan Colburn:

    Lyft scooters were the next best thing, and I loved riding them. They have the best acceleration and braking of any other scooter I've tried here, for me, so many of the trips I need to make are too far to walk most of the time, but also a bit too short for me to want to deal with my car. They are especially nice when going up the hills here in Atlanta( something that isn't fun on a normal bike). I'm super sad to see them leave. Other scooters aren't as nice to use or are more expensive.

  3. Alan Fung:

  4. Todd Hamilton:

    You just never know. Golf is kind of like riding a bike. If you are off, all of a sudden you can get that feeling where you feel real good again and can see all the shots and confidence comes back and we feel young again, hopefully, I can find that one swing key here that will last the whole week and I make a few putts too.

  5. Joanne Fonseca:
