I am curious about a couple of things in the phrase below:
no podíamos quitar carga a la bicicleta.
1) Why isn't there a la in front of carga?
2) How do I decide that a is the correct proposition to use for "from the bicycle"? My first thought was to use de. My second thought that the English wording " remove the resistance on the bike" hinted at en. After seeing the answer, I considered the possibility that cargar may always be followed by a (by grammar rule).Thanks for any help you can provide.
