"Area" is typically a count noun in English. "Space" works better in this context, but I'd rather rephrase the sentence.
"Single bicycle" threw me at first because a "double bicycle" is a thing
, so it sounds like there's an implied contrast here (i.e. "I haven't ridden a *single* bicycle, but I have ridden double bicycles".) If you're just trying to emphasise that you've ridden no bicycles, I'd use "at all".

This strikes me as a very posh expression. Most people I think would use "have".
It's also a very ambiguous sentence, since depending where you are, "tea" here could be mean the beverage, a fancy light snack, or the ordinary evening meal. If you just mean that they drink a cup of tea, I would say that.
