Dear all,

In the circus, I saw a woman on a bike riding on a tightrope.
In the circus, I saw a woman riding on a bike on a tightrope.

I made up the sentences. The woman was an acrobat for the circus.
I would appreciate if someone would tell me which of the two sentences is more natural English.

    I would say "A woman riding a bike on a tightrope."

    We would generally describe this as 'riding a bike' rather than 'riding on a bike', as 'on' doesn't add much real information.
