A few days ago we looked at how to use eat, ate, eaten. From what I can see, it was a pretty popular exercise and you must feel that it's important to review the basics.

Let's try another irregular verb, ride.

Ride is the present simple.

Rode is the past simple.

Ridden is the past participle.

Now then, complete the sentences with the correct verb.
