What a miserable bunch you lot are. It's efficient, cheaper than a bike, can be carried more easily. Keeps people out of private cars, taxis and other polluting vehicles and most commenters here criticizing hypothetical users for arbitrary and classist reasons.

What adult would commute to work on a scooter?


Quite a few in London.

What adult would commute to work on a scooter?


The self entitled types who wear scarves, eat smashed avacado on toast, are constantly outraged on twitter and moan about not being able to afford a 4 bed house in London as a first property.
I have an adult scooter. I'm too nervous to use a bike on the road. Scooting is easy and good exercise to get to work. I can scoot on the pavement and feel safe, obviously being courteous to other pedestrians. I can also just hop off and pop into shops on way home. No need to park a bike or car. So convenient. And I save on petrol and not sit in traffic. I'll be honest I don't do it everyday but it's actually quite fun.

All I can think is those with children that also own a scooter and tack the school run onto their commute?

I always worried about having one big leg.

I bought this for my 10 year old who loves it. I even ride it too.

It’s not the best well built scooter in the world, but it works despite the handle grips being a little wobbly and the stand being a pointless addition.

The carrying strap broke when I carried it for the first time, but Halfords gave me a better strap when I asked for another.

I paid £45 for a week before Black Friday, however would buy it again if it were stolen.

Nice post OP

Don't worry, it won't get stolen.

I saw a family all on scooters riding along a cycle path yesterday while out on my lunch break and genuinely felt a bit envious. I can't wait to be able to the same with my family - my little one is a bit young at present.
My daughter does Parkrun on a flat course 2.5k out and back. I use her scooter to go about 1k out and wait for her to pass and scoot back when she heads back - it's the only way I can keep up. You can switch pushing legs by the way. I think these are great on smooth surfaces

Don't really have any scootering experience, how do you go uphill (or don't)?
Would be good to carry on train for commuters
I ride my sons home when I do a school run. I get a mixture of smiles and odd looks. My highlight is scooting past all the other parents sat in their cars, whilst they queue at busy junctions.

You scoot uphill (obviously just takes a bitmore effort)

Public transport and road traffic are so dire in this country that scooters have become a viable alternative.

I like how you've chosen 'wearing a scarf' as the most despicable trait of Londoners. Nothing says entitled like keeping your neck warm.
I have a 4 mile commute I can walk in an hour run in half an hour, and cycle ( if quiet) in 15 mins. What kind of time would a scooter do it in ? I like the idea of the odd bus in and scoot home.
A 2mile walk that normally takes me approx 30mins, takes me 15-20mins to scoot. It's a little mixture of uphill and downhill. I'm not really fit and also if there's other pedestrians on the pavement I have to slow down sometimes if they don't let me pass.

I do a moderate speed 3 mile scoot commute in 25 mins if that helps
I do scoot to work as part of my commute in between home/office and the station for about 3 miles each way in London.

I'd say scooting generally halves the walking time, especially during commuting hours where pedestrians are active on pavement. In night time I could generally scoot the same distance in approx. 1/3 of walking time required (it is a bit of a work out). However, it is largely dependent on route choice (i.e. pavement/surface conditions and steepness of hills)

Is getting one with suspension not pretty compulsory over anything other than perfect surfaces ?

Mine doesn't have suspension but it does have slightly bigger wheels than this one. Bumpy on rough terrain but I've gotten used to it. There is a gravel part to my route to work, I just walk and watch the dogs on the park, I find it easy to walk with.

The type that won't ride a bike on the roads because of all the Muppets that are on their phones while driving
Now the price is 49 pounds.
