Lifestyle | The rising popularity of scooters

There was a time when scooters were seen merely as something that only kids used, but that perception has changed massively. In the modern world, scooters are used by many different people and for many different reasons. They are used by small children who haven’t learnt to ride a bike yet, as well as used by commuters wanting to get to work quicker than it takes them to walk. Furthermore, there is a whole load of highly skilled scooter riders that perform tricks and even go on to become professional scooter riders. While BMX riders and skateboard riders have long been welcomed into the stunts/tricks community, scooters are now also becoming a very high-profile activity.

Such is the popularity of scooter stunts, there are numerous festivals and competitions held all over the world to celebrate the excellence of the scooter. Scootfest is one of the most popular scooter events in the UK, and it looks like the popularity is soaring at a rapid pace.

It is not just stunts that make scooters great, they are also one of the most convenient ways to travel relatively short distances. Many people including commuters are turning to scooters as a more convenient alternative to cycling a few miles of a journey. For people who travel by public transport but still have a considerable distance to travel to get to their workplace, they are ideal. They are easy to carry and lightweight and taking them on public transport is much easier than trying to get a bike on a train and some transport companies don’t allow bikes onto their vehicles.

Scootering is increasing in popularity; therefore, manufacturers are producing high-quality stunt scooters for future scootering world champions to practice on. With Scootfest and Scoot GB aiming to grow and sustain participation within the sport, people are looking towards District Scooters due to their creative designs, lightweight nature and capability to perform stunts and tricks that’ll kickstart their scootering careers. If you aspire to be like world champion Jordan Clark, can provide you with a mountain of professional, stunting District Scooters, such as the C Series Scooters, where the decks and bars were built for such extreme sports, stunts and tricks.

Bikes can be very costly in comparison and a lot harder to maintain with the frequent possibility of punctures, wearing down of brake pads and chains that need oiling. Scooters are a great low maintenance option that suits you if you are looking just to get going and not worry about whether it is going to cause you issues along the journey.

Scooters are also incredibly easy to ride, and you can keep the pace you want. With cycling, if you have to stop and start constantly, it can become awkward to use, especially in major cities or towns; however, with a scooter, you can simply start and stop easily. What is there not to like about scooters? They are convenient and reliable and could add some fun to your daily journeys as well as provide some extra exercise to your routine. If you have not bought yourself a scooter yet, then you are missing out on all of the fun!
