Lesson 7


Fill in each blank with the correct form of the words in parentheses.

When I was a teenager, I used to love 1) (bike) in the forest near my house. My brother and I would spent all day 2) (explore) the Pine Barrens of South Jersey. We didn’t have any money, so when we got thirsty, we would stop (drink) water from streams. We also enjoyed (eat) wild blueberries from the woods.
(cycle) wasn’t just for fun, it was our primary form of transportation. We got a lot of exercise from 6) (not get) driver’s licenses until we were 18. If we wanted (visit) our friends 20 miles away, we had (ride) there. It didn’t matter what the weather was like. I remember (travel) 50 miles in the snow (get) home after (spend) the day (ski).

Nowadays, I prefer 13) (walk) instead of 14) (fight) the traffic in New York, but still bike if I need 15) (go) to New Jersey for some reason.
