Can you ride a bike/skate?

I know a lot of people might think everyone should be able to ride a bike but I have a few friends who were never given a bike as a child and so never learned how to ride one. They are too embarrassed to do so now so they probably never will ride one.
Oh and I am talking bicycles, not motorbikes lol.

I can ride a bike but I don't currently have one. I might get one at some point this year. I used to love riding my bike when I was a kid.
I remember the first time my parents got me one for Christmas. My dad started riding it! It was so funny as it was such a little bike and I remember screaming at him to come back. So yes, my dad taught me.

And how about skating? Did/do you own roller skates or roller blades?

I could never get the hang of roller blades but I used to love my skates. My friend and I would pretend we were famous ice skaters. He had blades, though. I remember getting bored of skating pretty quickly and went back to my original love, my Raleigh.

I used to be able to rollerblade like a mad person, I was so good at it but that was when I was younger. I outgrew my roller blades then just never bought more.

I can ride a bike.

I can skateboard a bit, but I kept breaking bones doing that so I stopped.

I can ride a bike, I used to love going mountain biking on the weekends with friends but after my bike was stolen about a year ago I am yet to replace it due to a lack of funds. I used to be able to roller blade and was oka-ish at skateboarding but I never did mange to drop into a bowl as I was just to terrified.

Same here, I know a surprising amount of people who can't ride a bike. I suppose it's just like swimming; you usually either learn from a young age, or you don't at all. Obviously with exceptions.

I learnt to ride a bike as a kid, it's one of the first experiences I remember quite well. One incident was when I crashed into a bin after getting my stabilizers off, and another was when the bike made a huge scratch/cut up my leg, which I didn't notice for a while and then bawled my eyes out when it was pointed out to me.

The last time I rode a bike was probably last year sometime, and I was drunk, haha. I came home from a night out and got my mum's bike out of the garden shed and went for a nice little ride down the road and back. No idea why, random as hell. :hah:

I suck at skating and roller blading, though I used to like doing the latter occasionally. There was a stage in life where everyone was going either swimming or roller blading for their birthday party. I usually preferred blading, despite being a much better swimming.

I do know how to ride a bike, I was taught at a very young age how to ride one, that said I hate riding bikes.

I can skate but not really well. I know it's surprising since I'm Canadian, but I rarely skate, which is a shame because I don't mind it when I do it. The biggest thing is that I cannot stop on skates, which is a big turn off for me.

I only skated once this year.

I find it weird that people don't know how to ride a bike. One of the first memories I have as a kid is learning how to ride. Probably because it was a bad memory, I made it all the way to the bottom of our drive way, turned onto the grass and landed on a huge thistle and got prickles stuck in my butt. :(

As for skating...I went rollerskating maybe twice and I was actually pretty good at it. Surprising for my lack of co-ordination.

I learned to ride a bike when I was really young. I remember I used to take old baseball cards and put them in the spokes so it would sound like a "motor." I haven't rode a bike in years. My Mom and Dad go bike riding almost every Saturday to keep in shape. I could see myself doing that one day as well.

As far as skating I am a very good skater, well, at least I was. My favorite sport the majority of my childhood was hockey so my brother and I skated all the time. Then I joined a roller hockey team which was a lot of fun.

Ice skating I am less good but I think it is something I could pick right back up on even though I haven't been ice skating in years either.

Yes I learned how to ride a bike very early on. I think my training wheels came off when I was 4 or 5.

I used to roller skate all the time. It was a huge fad when I was young, going to roller rinks and skating to YMCA or Earth, Wind, and Fire's September. Good times, man.

I own roller blades, but I haven't used them very much. I thought it would be easier than it is because I'm a decent ice skater, but it's not easy to stop. I also own hockey skates. I love ice skating but I haven't been since last year.

After numerous FAILED attempts to teach me how to ride a bike, my parents finally quit when I was in the 2nd grade. My best friend (with whom I'm still very close to) taught me how to ride a bike after she pushed me on one of them, and screamed "Peddle! Peddle! Peddle!" It was good times.

I used love roller blading as a kid, even after it resulted in my nose being broken after I fell on my FACE. One of my fondest memories of busting out the blades was when a bunch of us neighborhood kids would get together and play street hockey in the cul-de-sac. And skateboarding was and arguably still is, one of my favorite activities, but I haven't skated for about a year now. From time to time, I'll bust out my board and just roll around, but that's pretty much it - no skate parks for me anymore.

I can ride a bike still...I think

It's been years since I've ridden one D: I might die trying to ride one again.
