Bicycle – la bicicleta
To remember that bicycle is pronounced bee-thee-kleh-tah (lunes) in European Spanish, use the following mnemonic:
Riding the bicycle across the bumps, she knew there was going to be a thick pool of sick later (bicicleta).
Bicicleta is feminine, so it’s la bicicleta. Imagine a lady worrying about getting her dress caught in a bicycle.
