For some reason the suggested answer was "our" bicycles. I reported it.

This comment interested me, so I asked about the matter here.

Seems to me that, at least for those of us to whom "We rode the bicycles..." sounds somewhat unusual that "our" is the default option for capturing the meaning provided by the "las."

See for instance here how about half the translations for "ride our bikes" include some form of possessive, but half don't .
