The idiom "well worth the ride" is usually used for a journey made on horseback, bike, motorcycle, or vehicle.
But what I mean in the following example is "ride" as a journey on foot (e.g. mountain climbing) and "ride" as a metaphor for a journey/ trip / effort in general:
- Dan: "You should try and climb this mountain. It’s hard, it will take lots of time, but it's well worth the ride."
(ride as a journey, or as an effort).
- Sam: We will be traveling on foot.
Can " worth the ride" be used to refer to a journey on foot, mountain climbing, specifically?
Can " worth the ride" be used to refer to a way/journey/ trip/ effort in a general sense?
- "You need to study hard, many years; it’s a long way up, but well worth the ride."
