According to terminator.wikia.com, Terminators can run with these speeds: T-600 37mph(60km/h) T-800 22mph(35.2km/h) although the text says "maneuver faster than the T-600 Terminator" T-888 more T-1000 40mph(64km/h) T-X 50mph(80km/h).
Combining the above, we could say a T-888 Terminator could ride a bicycle as fast as a human or faster, but without getting tired. Of course we don't know if a bicycle can take the weight of a Terminator, but we have seen that a bed can hold both Cameron and John together, without any issues, so we can asume that, at least Cameron can ride a bicycle. And we can imagine that easily:

Perhaps more than a year back, i did this small demo that follows, using an amateur programming environment for game development called GameMaker. I taught some students to use it in 2007-08. Now i improved my more-than-year try, to be more video and .gif friendly, but also i extended the idea in two more ways. I will reveal them in time ... It's Cameron inspecting our army :
Wouldn't you appreciate to inspect the above army yourself ? Thanks to "GameMaker", we can have a little taste of it. The alignment at first and the synchronization of each row, was a little tricky ! Thankfully, in order to make the .gif, i only needed a few seconds so, they didn't have time to DE-synchronize badly. My fault.. i didn't program them properly .
Great work again from Alexander and i like the music too-a lot, as in the previous video!
Here is the last part of "GameMaker's" applications to this Camerons' army. It's not really 3D, it's pseudo 3D. In reality, there is only one row of Camerons the front, but there are eight objects based on this row, displaying it in varying sizes and positions, according to the user's input. I only wanted to make a zoom-in feature, but while i was trying to make them align height-wise, the solution brought a lot more functionality, which i tried to exploit. The .gif shown doesn’t demonstrate all the functionality, since you can pseudo-look to the sides too, but i give you the executable file (pc only), in which you can browse this army yourself, or make your own video . You can move around using the arrow keys and go up/down by pressing "Shift"/"Ctrl" accordingly.

What is in John Connor's mind? Terminators for sure.. but this one seems to have a special position .
I have a thought for quite sometime now: Jesse and Derek said that John in the future was saying: "i am not going to stop this war, i'm going to win it". I don't remember the exact episode. And winning doesn't necessary mean destroying the enemy, but perhaps even better, putting him to rebuild as much as he destroyed. So, Terminators could be used for rebuilding the post-apocalyptic world they created and serve the humans, as skynet was meant to do since the beginning. The fact that John was reprogramming Terminators, aside from the obvious support they provide for warlike situations, could also mean that perhaps he was thinking of them helping humans in peace situations too. And what better example would be for that, as a good looking Terminator as Cameron? Of course future humans would mistrust them and even he and his mother in the past, would do the same. So, in some way, he had to convince even his past self and his mother for the potential of good Terminators and perhaps that is a reason he send back especially Cameron, because she was the best "card", to gain their sympathy. Sarah in the "TSCC-S02E19 Today Is The Day, Part 2" was wondering herself, why did John send Cameron back... He knew perhaps from himself too, that Cameron would definitely gain John's.. favor. She was also less likely to cause psychological traumas to teenager John. Perhaps Josh Friedman was having something like this in his mind . I guess someone could have easily thought of that, a lot sooner than me and perhaps there is already relative fan-fiction out there, but i'm not aware of it .
