Describe a bicycle/motorcycle/car trip you would like to go on
For easier understanding, I have divided this IELTS Speaking Cue Card Describe a bicycle/motorcycle/car trip you would like to go on into three parts – Introduction, Questions, and Conclusion.
Introducing a trip
I always aspire to take a ride to the mountains and conquer fear and find bliss over there. So today, I would like to talk about a bike ride to the hills that I desperately want to go.
Where you would like to go?
And the place would be none other than Ladakh – also called the land of high passes. It’s is a high-altitude city (now a Union Territory) located at the northern tip of India.
It’s a world of rugged valleys, snow-covered mountains, endless hills, barren lands, clean and curvy roads and the mystical Lamas where centuries old monasteries have still maintained their charm.
Who you would like to go with?
A trip to Ladakh would be an adventure trip. So I would definitely pick two of my best friends – Sahil & Jimmy.
Basically, they both trek a lot especially in the high altitude regions and moreover they know intricacies of the place.
When you would like to go?
We would possibly go next month. As you know, most covid restrictions have now been lifted and we are fully vaccinated. Therefore, I don’t find any reason to delay further.
Explain why would you like to go by motorcycle?
I would like to go by motorcycle because firstly, it’s cheaper and more convenient form of transportation which can quickly get you through congestion and traffic within cities as well as bad roads.
Secondly, A motorbike affords you the provision of altering plans, taking detours and engaging with the world around you better.
Concluding the cue card
In the end I’d just tell you that… If a man stays in one place for a long time, he becomes monotonous. Travelling removes this monotony and gives pleasure. Moreover, a bike trip with friends to a hill station is an adventure like no other.
Following are the probable set of IELTS Speaking Part-3 follow up questions that could be asked in Describe a bicycle/motorcycle/car trip you would like to go on cue card:
Which form of vehicle is most common in your country, bikes, car or motorcycle?
In India, Most people prefer motorcycles for travelling within the city and when travelling alone, while they prefer cars when travelling to another city and when travelling with family.
Do you think air pollution comes mostly from cars?
Old, soon-to-be wrecked vehicles are undisputedly a major cause of air pollution. They need to be removed from the streets. However, most air pollution comes from energy use and production. This makes industries major contributors to polluting our air.
Do you think people need to change the way of transportation drastically to protect the environment?
Yes, definitely! People need to radically change their transit options and think from an environment perspective. Because vehicles running on fossil fuels are no doubt a great source of air pollution. Authorities must impose strict guidelines. I believe the golden handshake between government and the public will do wonders for the environment.
How are transportation systems in rural and urban systems different?
I think the transportation system in rural and urban setup is quite different. let me tell you how, people living in densely packed cities typically already have easy access to a network of buses, trains, and perhaps bicycles. Metropolitan areas are specifically built to serve the needs of hundreds of thousands or millions of people who are all packed tightly into a small area. Compared to urban areas, rural regions are far more dispersed. Instead of amenities being packed tightly into one downtown area, they are spread out. Most of the time, cars are the most effective way to travel from home to work, school, or the supermarket.
