  • Yes and Yes, I learned to ride a bike at an early age, but swimming came much later. I wish my mom would have encouraged swimming more because it's harder to teach an older child. The fear of water sets in as the child ages. I didn't learn till I was in 6th grade, after my mom put me in swimming lessons. When I started the lessons there where 2 year olds swimming better than me!!

  • yes, & yes. I have a friend who never learned how to ride a bike though, that seemed so strange to me.

  • I can ride a bike great, but swimming is not my strong point - I can swim fine, but only if my face/head is underwater - I don't know why.

  • I can do both! It's sort of funny, I learned to ride a bike when I was 4 or 5 but I didn't learn to swim until I was 10. My mom was too paranoid to let me try and swim by myself, so I had to keep a life jacket on until my feet could touch the bottom of our pool.... I was short for my age, so it took FOREVER!

  • Yes, I learned to ride a bike and swim around age 3.

    I couldn't believe there were people who didn't know how to swim until I became acquainted with a girl at work (now my best friend) who doesn't know how to swim.
