    I and he = pronouns, subjects of their respective clauses

    will walk and will ride = verbs of their respective clauses

    and = conjunction, joining two independent clauses to make a compound sentence

    bike = noun, direct object of the verb "ride"

    a = article, modifying the noun "bike"
