First of all, lets get one thing clear – riding a kick scooter as an adult is nothing to be ashamed of. It does not automatically make you immature or even worse, a hipster. Don’t confuse a kick scooter with a Segway. Even though you’ll be sitting pretty low in the urban-jungle food chain, people will give you weird looks, bikers will look down on you, and motorists will despise you, you’ll find that riding a scooter is the next step in evolution.
Riding an adult scooter is like having superpowers, you will be whooshing around the city at least twice as fast as you would on foot. Sure, bicycles are much faster, but I’ll sacrifice a little speed for more convenience any time of the week. Bicycles are simply too much hustle for me and eventually get stolen since you cant carry them with you at all time. Scooters on the other hand are lightweight, compact, and you can fold them and carry them with you even on a crowded subway, or you can put them under your desk at work. And I think that no thief with a little dignity would steal one even if you left it unattended.
You are probably still not convinced and you think kick scooters are just a silly kids’ toy. However, if you visit any skate shop, you will find adult scooters for sale that use state-of-the-art technology, top-quality materials, and they are specially designed for adults who appreciate practical solutions to every day problems and they are not ashamed of it.
Scooting is an excellent way to stay in shape. It may look silly, but it is actually a full body exercise. What’s really great about it, is that it’s really fun and you don’t need a designated time of the day to do it. You just exercise on the way to work or the grocery store.
As I mentioned before, adult scooters are a practical alternative transport. Instead of being stuck in traffic you can zip around the city like it’s no man’s business. The fact that it is compact and lightweight means that you can combine it with public transport. Just scoot to the nearest bus station, fold your scooter and get on the buss. If you feel like walking, just pick it up and walk, it’s that simple.
Here are some useful tips you might want to consider. If you are a beginner in scooting you should probably use a helmet till you get the hang of it and start feeling more confident. A comfortable backpack is very useful for carrying your things while scooting. Other than that, you are good to go.
You can find a large variety of adult scooters for sale online with different features and performance levels. Get one that fits your size and feels comfortable. And remember, haters gonna hate, but the adult scooter master race is growing larger and stronger every day and very soon we will rule the world. OK, got a little carried away there, but yeah, more and more adults are discovering the wonders of the scooter and accepting it as a positive thing and a step forward in urban transport.
