My wife recently got a scooter and I used it today to get to and from work. What a feeling! Bus fares saved, wind in the hair, sharpened dynamic spatial awareness, and best of all, coasting downhill, one leg crossed behind the other. Unlike a bike, you can fully justify riding it on the pavement, and it gives both your legs a good workout.
Who's with me? Who wants to join the SCOOTER TROOPERS? Who already has?
N.B. We have a big-wheeled scooter - much more reward for your effort that way, plus it takes bumps better.
