There are many different ways to get to school. When you bike to school, you need to be prepared with different things. You need a bike chain and helmet, and wear sneakers so you don’t trip and fly into the air.

One good thing about riding your bike is that you get to school faster than by taking the bus or walking. The bus makes so many stops along the way, and it is a slow, long ride. One good thing about the bus is that you can talk to your friends or even do your homework. It does stink when the bus is late — especially on those cold mornings.

Another way to get to school is by getting a car ride with your parents. That could be faster than the bus and walking, and you can always stop for some breakfast on the way.

Walking is fun, but not so much when it is cold outside. It is better when you are with your friends. My two favorite ways to travel are walking and taking my bike.
