An Electric ScooterTour
We’ve been thinking of buying an electric scooter for a while now. But first, we thought it would be smart to rent a couple of them for a day and see what they’re like. It wasn’t cheap (over $50 a day for each) but we thought of it as research.
There’s a lot of this city you can see on a single change. And if you’re the penny pinching sort, a full charge apparently only costs a few cents. So what can you see for a few cents (plus the hefty rental fee)? We hit downtown, The westend, Kits, Mount Pleasant, Commercial, Strathcona, and Gastown.
My scooter’s power started to dwindle a bit near the end, and it did need some extra help getting up the inclines on Quebec street and just off Commercial. We got some odd looks, a few people asked us what we were riding and where we got them, and one kid thought I looked bizarre (seriously, it was just the helmet). All in all though it was a lot of fun. Still not sure about buy them just yet though.
