Mormons do pay for their own missions, but not all missionaries ride
bikes. I spent time on foot and in a car on my mission, along with the
time spent on a bicycle. Some missionaries spend all their time on foot,
or in a car. It depends on where you go.

We actually had kids ask us if we rode bikes because we don't believe in
electricity. I guess they didn't see the electric light on my handlebars.

So I read before. Are you practicing now?


Yes, practicing is probably a good word for it, as I am still far from
perfect.

If you are riding a bike it seems like you are practicing more than
driving.
