No problem, just read on:) Continue reading Why you should go to school by bike?

We spend half of our day in school or executing exercises for school so no wonder that school has a strong impact on our lives and that we think and worry a lot about school.

If you like to chew chewing gum I have a great tip for you! Let’s say you are studying for your next Geography test.
