Of course, a nun can ride a bike. Except if they are too young for bike riding.
A nun may not be too young, but a nun who is 60 years and above cannot ride a bike.
Nuns are often times considered as people who can’t ride bikes because of their devoted lifestyle.
We neglect the facts that nuns are not robots but humans and have desires too.
If they can’t ride bikes, they can learn anyways, their devotion to their belief doesn’t restrict them from riding bikes.
So, even if they never had the skill of riding bikes, they can at any point learn how to ride a bike.
There is a popular myth that if you never learned how to ride a bike when you were a lad, then you have missed the possibility of riding a bike in your lifetime.
This is not true because learning how to ride a bike as a grown-up is not more difficult than being a child. All that is required is putting little by little effort into the process of learning.
This means that nuns can ride bikes and even if they do not have the skill, they can learn to ride bikes.
Do nuns ride bicycles?
They are not forbidden to be social but to do it in a moderate sense.
Since nuns drive cars, people are inquisitive to know if they also ride bicycles.
Sure! Nuns ride bicycles.
Surprised? Well, you may not see a nun riding a bike on daily basis during their leisure time but they have an event known as “cycling sisters”.
The cycling sisters is a sixty-two miles bicycle ride that involves a prominent number of nuns cycling alongside praying.
Nuns who are not skilled at riding bikes are trained for this course and their cycling experience during the cycling sisters event is all about prayers.
Since it’s a worldwide event, it is live-streamed so that people can engage in the cycling event.
Asides from the cycling sisters event, it is rare to see a nun riding a bicycle.
There are countries that are underdeveloped with nuns deployed to those regions.
Since most of their services are rendered to the poor, they have to adapt to their way of life, which includes their culture, the food they eat, and even their mode of transportation.
In these villages, there is the absence of tarred roads which makes it impossible to use cars there instead they employ the use of bikes.
Nuns in these regions ride bikes for easy mobility to long and short distances, to help them carry out their main objective of reaching out to people.
Can a nun ride a motorcycle?
Of course, nuns can ride a motorcycle if they want to.
A nun can ride a motorcycle provided she has learned how to ride it.
Riding a motorcycle doesn’t have a negative impact on her Christian faith.
Although nuns are known to have dedicated their lives to the poor and chastity, this makes a lot of people consider their lives boring.
These activities do not stop them from having recreational moments.
For a fact, they have their recreational moments mostly in the afternoon time and at this time they are allowed to go around some parts of the city, they can play games, do their work, enjoy the company of others and even ride bikes if they want.
Since nuns are majorly engaged in taking care of people and chastity, they tend to make a lot of movement and can ride a bike for their ease.
If there are nuns who drive cars, then they can also ride bikes. Besides, not everyone can afford a car and a bike is a more versatile option to enhance swift movement.
