Cyclist on a motorway - level 1

06-03-2014 15:00

This happens on Tuesday morning. A man rides his bike. He has a phone with him. The phone tells him to go on a motorway. The man does so.

There are a lot of cars on the motorway. It is morning and people go to work. The police can see the man. There are security cameras at the motorway. One policeman goes to the man.

They talk. Riding a bike on a motorway is illegal. The cyclist must pay £50. The cyclist leaves the motorway and rides home.

Difficult words: motorway (big road where cars go fast), do so (follow instructions), illegal (people must not do illegal things), cyclist (person on a bike).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
