THEY SEE ME ROLLIN, THEY HATIN…
Who else likes exploring cities on an electric scooter 🛴? It is an easy way to up level your city sightseeing and quickly becoming a favorite for tourists looking to other means of transportation when exploring new cities.
Electric scooter hires have popped up in cities all across the globe including Zürich in Switzerland (pictured above) and hiring them is as easy as downloading an app. Lime being my go-to personally when I see it in scooter friendly cities.
I’m super cautious when it comes to anything on wheels from my own personal stories and the last thing I want is to end up in any emergency room be it home, let alone in a foreign country while traveling which I also have personal stories on this subject too so here are my top tips for enjoying these scooters the next time you see them in a city you visit.
🛴- Hire these when the weather is nice. Riding in rain is no fun and from my experience feels more dangerous.
🛴 – Go for a short test run before committing. You want to ensure you feel comfortable riding them especially if this is your first time.
🛴 – Avoid cobble streets if possible. It’s bumpy and makes for a less enjoyable ride.
🛴 – Know basic cycle signals as you will still have to ride on main streets and follow the rules of the road.
🛴 – Ride at your own pace and based on what makes you feel safe. Your confidence levels will build with experience.
