Why must I say
I go to work every day with my red bicycle
… by my red bicycle"?
Shouldn't I use by in front of a means of transport?
For example, the following sentence is grammatical:
If I travel to work every day, the travelling is performed by my bicycle and me.
And from the website, English Teacher Melanie, I learned verbs can be used instead of "by".
How do you get to work?
- I drive to work.
- … take the bus to work.
- … ride my bike to work.
- … walk to work.
- … take the subway to work.
But she doesn't say "why" I cannot say: I go to work by my red bike.
- Why is by wrong in my sentence?
