     Syn: Drive.

     Usage: {Ride}, {Drive}. Ride originally meant (and is so used throughout the English Bible) to be carried on horseback or in a vehicle of any kind.

Johnson seems to sanction this distinction by giving "to travel on horseback" as the leading sense of ride; though he adds "to travel in a vehicle" as a secondary sense. This latter use of the word still occurs to some extent; as, the queen rides to Parliament in her coach of state; to ride in an omnibus. [1913 Webster]
