The title reads, Autour du monde en moto, but in the first sentence of the text we are told to use "à" moto which actually seems correct since a motorcycle is an individual mode of transportation. Maybe you could fix the title?
Freeform Writing Exercise B1
Thank you for your comment! The title has now been changed to "Autour du monde à moto".
L'Académie française recommends using 'à' with 'moto' as per the lesson content ("en" for means of transportation generally associated with things one ride inside of, i.e. plane, train, bus ; whilst "à" for means of transportation which one rides on, i.e. bicycle, motorbike).
And yet, it is possible to use 'en moto/ vélo' when talking about 'by the means of a transport':
See link here Figaro "à / en vélo".
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
For bikes (and I assume also for motorbikes) you can use either "à" or "en". I would expect that "en" were also accepted as correct for the first sentence.
