How can “I cycle to work” become “I am going to work” (near future) by bike. That would be if he is a courrier. Shouldn’t it be « je vais au travaille » ? And I thought that by bike would be à vélo.
Freeform Writing Exercise A1
I wrote "je vais au travail en vélo" and that was accepted.
Of course. Au travail. Not what I wrote. What I wrote was corrected with « je vais travailler en vélo »
Hmmm. And why isn’t it ‘a velo
@Elizabeth, I found this article that claims the correct way per the Académie française is "à velo": http://www.astuceshebdo.com/2013/11/a-velo-ou-en-velo-academie-francaise.html
They note that in the current parlance, they both are acceptable, but "en vélo" is not strictly correct. Maybe someone else can confirm?
The lesson cited says with bike one can say either en vélo or à vélo.
