I'm Kevin，a student of Grade 8. Most of my friends walk to school，but I like to ride my bike each day. I wake up at 7：00. After I wash my face and eat breakfast，I do.
I take my bike，hop （跳） onto it and ride to school at 7：30. "See you later，"I say.
I pass my friends when I ride by. "Hi，Kevin!" they call when I pass. Mary does not want to ride with me. She does not like wear a schoolbag. She likes to carry her books in her arms when she walks. She likes to kick the autumn leaves. But she likes to look at the flowers best.
Not me!I like to ride my bike to feel the fresh air in my face. When I get to school，I lock my bike in the bicycle park. I walk across the field to say hi to Mr Brown，and wait for my friends in our classroom.
