Riding a bicycle is a great way to get around. Bicycles are quiet, fun to ride, and you don’t need gas or electricity to make them go. You just use the power of your legs. Bicycles have two wheels. One wheel is in front of the other. You swing your leg over the bike, sit down, and start pedaling.The heart of every bicycle is its frame. Most bicycles have frames made of thin metal tubes. The best frames are light and strong. A seat, called a saddle, is in the middle of the frame. You can make the seat higher or lower. Bicycle wheels usually have wire spokes. Spokes help the wheel keep its round shape. Inflatable tires fit on the wheels. The wheels have brakes for stopping. A bicycle has handlebars. You use the handlebars to steer and help you balance on two wheels. Most bikes have brake levers on the handlebars. You squeeze thelevers to make the breaks work. Pedals and a chain make a bike go. You put your feet on the pedals and push. The pedals go around and around. The turning pedals move a chain. The chain goes to the back wheel. The chain goes around a part called a cog. The moving chain makes the cog on the back wheel turn. Most bicycles have a gear shift attached to the frame or the handlebars. Bikes usually have 5 to 27 gears. Bicycle gears have a part called a derailleur. The derailleur shifts the chain to lower or higher gears. You use a lever to shift gears. You use low gears for going up a hill. You use high gears for going faster, usually on flat roads or down hill.

You have heard a lot in praise of the Internet: A lot of good things have been said about the Internet: it allows people all over the world to communicate easily and it provides you with all kinds of information. As you are interested, you would like to start to be involved in it, but you do not know how to start to be involved in it, but you do not know how to start. The first thing you need is a computer. Those with pentium processors would be nice, but a 486 is enough. An IBM compatible or a Macintosh will do, but it must be equipped with a modem. The higher the modem speed is better. The minimum is 14.4 Kbps (kilobytes per second). You need a telephone line. If you don’t have one at home, you might be able to use the one at the office (naturally with the permission of your boss). This will be your connection to Cyber space. After you have all of the equipment, you need to contact an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Since 1994, the government has issued business licenses for 40 ISPs in Indonesia. Some of them, like the ones operated by IPTEK-NET and the Institute of Technology Bandung, are not for commercial use. Most of the ISPs operate in Jakarta, but some offer services in several other cities. PT Pos Indonesia, the state company which runs mail offices nationwide, provides services in 31 cities in the provinces. If you can’t find an ISP in your town, this does not necessarily mean that you can’t get connected to the internet. You will still be able to venture into Cyberspace, but you will have to pay more for the phone bills. This depends not only on how long you use the phone, but also how far the closest ISP office is from your place.
