6 scooting facts to blow your mind POSTED ON 21/11/2014
Did you know an estimated 500,000 Micro scooters are used on the school run?*
With the average journey being a mile each way that’s 1 million miles of scooting each week day…..**
…which is equivalent to scooting around the world 40 times.
Did you know 1 million miles of scooting saves £130,000 in petrol costs***
500,000 scooter journeys equals 500,000 less car journeys every day (250,000 during the Summer holdiays!)…
Scooting the school run instead of driving saves just over a tonne of CO2 carbon emissions per family.^
If everybody who owns a Micro scooter lined up they would form a human scooting chain from Lands End to John O Groats (and back again).
How did we do?
If you want to join in the scooting fun – then we have a rather lovely adult Micro scooter for you to do it on.
The Micro Floral White scooter is one of the most elegant, stylish and simply beautiful adult Micro scooters. It is perfect for scooting the school run with the kids, as part of your journey to work (or both).
But don’t take our word for it. Watch the video below (because everything is better described in a video)
