Here was the question:

Which one is correct?

She peddled her bike to the market.
10 (10%)
She peddled her bike at the market.
3 (3%)
She pedaled her bike to the market.
29 (29%)
She pedaled her bike at the market.
2 (2%)
Two of the above
54 (55%)

Ah, the difference between to pedal (to use feet to move a bike) and to peddle (to sell). Congrats to 55% of you. The second (sold her bike at) and third (rode her bike to) options are correct.
