7 good reasons switching to micro-mobility
Electric scooters or ebikes are rapidly gaining in popularity! It is no longer surprising to see many citizens riding on escooters & electric bikes, becoming a modern status symbol for people who are really going places..
If you're still not sure about them, here's 7 good reasons to ride on an electric scooter or ebike over your car!
No.1 SCOOTERING OR CYCLING IS A SPORT
Scootering or cycling is a practical daily physical activity, unlike driving a car. Scootering as a sport is still quite rare, so there's absolutely no need to wear sports clothing! No time to hit the gym every week between work, kids, and hobbies? Get on your scooter and transform your daily journeys into calorie burners!
On a folding electric scooter, you move on average 2-3 times faster than on foot through the town center. Average speed can be between 12-20 km/h. Faster than a car in rush hour, vehicle traffic speeds in many city centers are now averaging as little as 15 km/hour (9 ml/hour), And 60 percent of ordinary trips are less than 8 kilometers.
Micromobility offers city dwellers an escape from that stress: higher average speeds, less time spent waiting or parking, a lower cost of ownership, and the health benefits of being outdoors. Wearing a helmet is recommended (like for cycling): "prevention is better than cure" as they say!
No.3 SCOOTERS & EBIKES FOLLOW THE PEDESTRIAN HIGHWAY CODE
Scootering or cycling on an electric bike falls under the same rules as for pedestrians and skaters. Very practical for travelling around town and city centers! You can travel on pavements and use pedestrian routes without any problems. Also be aware of pedestrians who will be travelling more slowly than you.
No.4 AVOID TRAFFIC JAMS!
Traffic jams, we've all been stuck in them on the commute to work, and never really get used to them and they always add at least half an hour on the way home! Using a escooter or ebike instead of a car frees you from the stress of urban driving and enjoying open-air freedom. If you live several miles from your workplace, Electric power mobility is a convenient option for short trips, why not travel partway in your car or on public transport, and then travel the rest of the way by scooter. You can then relax, out of the traffic and gliding about town!
No.5 COMBINING SCOOTERING & CYCLING WITH PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Most ride on electric scooter and smart ebikes are folding and weigh between 13-15 kg. You can ride from your home to the bus stop or train station, fold them in a matter of seconds, and hold it like a bag on the underground, bus, or train! It's as simple as that, and it's called easyfold!
No.6 SCOOTERS DON'T NEED PARKING!
If you've chosen to use a escooter or e-bike as a mode of urban transport, you'll save time by not needing to scour the streets for a parking spot! You can simply fold it, take it to work with you, and store it like an umbrella. And you don't even run the risk of having it stolen...
No.7 IT'S ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
Scootering or cycling instead of driving every day helps preserve the environment and reduce pollution. Electric scooters, ebikes and other ride on tech will help you zip around town with ease -- they're Eco-friendly and offer a Recreational, Healthy, Effortless ride to boot.
