The BikeNYC revolution is not just limited to people on bikes. I’ve also noticed a considerable increase in the number of people on push scooters. It’s lovely. It’s people powered, not motor powered.
Most of the time, I see kids and parents travelling together. Since living space is small in NYC compared to places outside the city, I can understand why push scooters are so appealing. They can easily fold up to fit in a closet. This is convenient for families with multiple kids and no bike storage in their building. They also don’t need to be locked up outside once you get to your destination. You can just carry them in with you.
And when travelling from one point A to B, parents can either be the pilot sharing a scooter with their child or they can let their kid pilot independently (with a bit of guidance). Happy to have you join us.
