Hello,

The ohter day, one of my friends asked me if i had any plans for the weekend, so i said, "I might go cycling." Then he told me that "go bike (or bicycle) riding" sounds more natural.

He is from France and he has a good English. Maybe he is right, but I wanted to know if native speakers agree with him.

Thank you in advance! :)

    I use cycling for anyone who owns Lycra shorts and clip-in shoes and can fix a flat in about three minutes flat. I use bike riding for more casual cyclists.
