Hello,

I'm confused how to put it right:

'Just quitting to bike isn't a solution.'

or

'Just quitting biking isn't a solution.'

Thanks
forsin

    "Quitting to bike" is not correct grammatically. Some context would be helpful. Do you mean to give up cycling as a hobby?

    Would 'Just quitting biking' (as a hobby) then be ok?
    It's passable I suppose. There are more elegant ways of saying this and avoiding the double 'ing' ending or the word quit which is slang to old Brit me. Please attempt to give some context. Who are you saying this to or is it written and more formal?
