If he doesn't already know how I would say he'd learn very very quickly.  You need a sense of balance to ride a bike and I don't think that is something Yuzu is lacking.  The first requirement for gymnasts, divers and figure skaters is a sense of balance well above the average.  That Yuzu possesses in spades.

 

He actually doesn't know how to ride a bike, he said so at the JoC or JSF ceremony this year  -  which immediately made headline news  lol the News article said that only around 1% of Japanese can't ride a bike. I guess he is the special 1% after all. 

 

To me this is weirder than he can't swim, although i am pretty sure he  will learn quickly if he tried - I am guessing he is scared of injuring or twisting his ankle in any way in riding a bike that is probably why he never tried

There is a picture of him riding a bike when he was a kid. I think he just haven't done it in awhile and he think he forgot.

Nah, you don't forget how to ride a bike. Just like (I'm assuming) you don't forget how to skate, once you've learned how to balance yourself. You can be very rusty without practice but your body doesn't forget because it's muscle memory. If the picture you're speaking of is the one taken in IRS, it doesn't prove much. It was indoors and I forgot the details but the bike was supposed to be some kind of display unit or whatever. Someone brought it in for some kinda purpose and he was messing around with it and the photographs only proved that: him messing around with it. Guy explicitly said himself that he can't swim and that he can't ride a bike. I elect simply just taking his word for it because he really would have no reason to lie about his inability in those activities (unlike the other times he lied about his alleged skating-related inabilities--now on those, I would trust him as far as I can throw him).

If it's the picture I know, he wasn't really riding. I think he got that as a present and had just gotten on it, but I think even then he said he didn't know how to ride it.

 

I actually don't either, nor do I know how to swim, so I'm feeling pretty special right now LOL

That's sad.

 

I think if a female skater got a compliment from Yuzu himself, it would encourage and motivate them. Being praised by the GOAT himself is very special.

I just wanted to know what sort of ladies skater style he prefers.

 

What does he find important in singles skating in general? More of the artistic skaters, or athletic skaters etc. 

Which female skater is he inspired by, and what type of music choices or choreography does he like?

I wanted to know these things, because it is always interesting how female skaters take inspiration from yuzu, like his jumps or his programs. 

So far, Alena Zagitova, Gabby, Zhenya, and so many other female skaters spoke openly how they like Yuzu's jumps, total package etc etc in press conferences.

 

So sad that Japanese Media hinder that sort of skater praise cycle.  

He' both. He said in the conference after oly 'artistry must be built on foundation of master of techniques'. Also rmb in his bio book, he insisted to land 4lo not becuz no one landed it yet, but becuz he wanted to master an expression of a whole big picture (the whole program). 

 

So far he expressed he liked Shizuka, mao, yuna, also praised Evgenia for her consistency. But Shizuka is prob the biggest influence on him, his signature wide spread leg ina bauer was tribute to her(just like the Bielmann spin is tribute to Plush). He expressed his gratitude and admiration for her many times.

Okay that make sense to me :68468287: 

 

I haven’t been on a bike in years and don’t know how to swim  :13877886:

I can do both of those albeit only recreationally and am super out practice to boot. But I can do them. I can't save a drowning person and I can't promise I won't lose control and lurch into oncoming traffic but I won't drown (easily) if tossed into water and I won't fall on my face or my ass (in less than 10 seconds).

 

Can't skate worth a damn though. Tried it once a few years ago and am not compelled to learn further. But I'm happy enough to just...enjoy it vicariously through the likes of Hanyu. >_<

I was too afraid of pain as a kid to learn to ride... I tried, but never advanced from 4 wheels lol I like to think I know enough swimming theory not to immediately drown, but I'd much rather not test it. I've also never tried skating, but have promised myself I will, if I ever reach my ideal weight. Haven't been making much progress.

 

In a way all this makes me admire Yuzu even more. The way he jumps and the way he gets up after every fall is nearly mindblowing to the me that never dared do much for fear of pain. In the same time, he seems more normal for the things he can't/doesn't know how to do. I love that...

This shows that Yuzu appreciates good techniques. And this is probably the reason he does not watch the ladies. Imo.

I mean I'm not goint to stop you on that last statement since aside from very select few ladies most don't have fantastic technique, but I highly doubt that's the reason he doesn't watch ladies so much as time, and personal interest probably being main factors

I think I could learn how to ride a bike if Yuzuru taught me. In exchange, I could teach him to play piano... *whistles*

Given his fairly short height and slender physique you should be able to throw him quite a distance.

Things is, if it weren't for skating, I think he'd have learned how to swim and cycle. Swimming is a more or less compulsory thing in Japan in schools that come equipped with pools (iirc) and cycling is basically walking in Japan. Coupled with the fact that he seemed to have been an outgoing little daredevil (as in, he seemed the type who'd enjoy outdoor activities as much as indoor ones), I find it inconceivable that he wouldn't have learned those if he weren't so wholly invested in skating.

 

He gives so much of himself to it that I'm guessing he pretty much doesn't have a lot left to give to other endeavors that he isn't more than 50% invested in. Like say, English-learning, lol.

Wow really? There was a 10 year gap for me and while I wasn't going to be winning any Tour de Frances soon, I was able to ride the first time I got on a bike again. My body just remembered the balance and calibrated itself accordingly. With absolutely zero feedback from my brain....which doesn't say much, I guess, since that's pretty much what it does all the time. Also, I'm the dead opposite of athletic.

I only remembered him going something to the effect of you'd be surprised but I can't ride a bike and the nuance was more on the side of him never having learned how to do it. Which makes sense considering he was competing in competitions from a young age and would have invested all his athletic capacity into it and would have avoided doing things outside of skating that might give him injuries. So if your memory holds true, that would be news to me.

Nah, it's less to do with him and his lack in size but more me and my weak-ass inability to even pitch a decent ball.
