Model Answer:
In this busy and complicated life, I have already tried different kinds of activities, whether they are indoor or outdoor. However, today I would like to talk about one particular outdoor activity, which I haven’t tried yet, but would definitely try in the future.  The name of this outdoor activity is “cycling”.

Not sure, when I became fond of “cycling”, but I guess that it might have something to do with Tour de France cycling race back in 2018 which I saw for the first time on TV. Up until I saw that race, I had no idea that “cycling” could actually be such a fun and adventurous activity, which involved riding through some of the most beautiful flat, hilly and mountainous terrains of the world, by employing very impressive physical postures in an artful manner.

In fact, when I was following the “Tour de France” race, which started in France and then also venturing into the surrounding countries occasionally, I was struggling to decide whether to pay more attention to cycling race itself or the beautiful terrains on its path. Anyway, I didn’t get to try this nice outdoor activity as yet because I haven’t yet managed to buy a bicycle, which I really like. Besides, I am yet to convince my close friends to join me in “cycling” as I don’t really like to do it alone.

Then, of course, managing a suitable time to enjoy this physical activity is also an issue because I remain fairly busy with my work and other priorities. However, I am planning to start working on enjoying this nice outdoor activity this summer which is due in a few months.

Anyway, I would like to try this outdoor activity, because it would allow me to free up my hands, legs and muscle, which have become rather ‘stiff’ lately due to the lack of physical exercises. Besides, cycling would help boost my mood by taking me close to the beautiful nature around me. Finally, this great outdoor activity would also allow me to socialize with my friends while also doing some physical exercises at the same time.
