Riding the bike on long trips can be fun enough if you have the right company.
But biking in the city may not be so much a pleasurable experience for you have to pass through umpteen number of traffic signals, jams and rain and sun.
Partnering in city riding can be fun to a certain extent, but that depends on how entertaining you partner is. I am lucky to have a partner who is a certain enthusiast when it comes to singing for me. Sometimes I never have to ask, she just comes up with a super number when we are on the bike and the moments just pass.
