Why You Should Learn How to Drive a Scooter

Are you on the right path of becoming a scooterist? While you may feel intimidated a bit by people who are riding motorcycles, and you think your scooter will just look cute and tiny next to a motorbike, think again. There are many advantages to driving a scooter, as I will show you right away. First things first, riding a scooter is really easy and fun to learn. It is by no means as complicated as riding a motorcycle, and does not even come close to all the different things you need to know when you are driving a car. Especially if you are a first time rider, you will discover that a scooter is a lot of fun and comes with a very gentle learning curve. Of course, since you will be riding on the same roads as everyone, you need to know traffic rules and obey them, but, otherwise, you will soon discover that for a scooterist, the road becomes the most convenient place in the world.

Do you want to go for an open air trip? There is nothing simpler than packing a few essentials that are easy to accommodate in the small trunk, and go for a ride on your scooter. Don’t feel threatened by all the big bad motorbikes out there. At the next parking lot, you will just see why your scooter is a much better choice. Nimble and narrow, without taking up too much space, a scooter is easy to park about anywhere, so you will not encounter the usual problems other road users have to face. I can tell you this: riding on a scooter will work wonders for your self confidence and sooner than you think, you will begin feeling like the king (or queen) of the road.

If you are not yet convinced why it would be a great idea to learn how to drive a scooter, let me talk to you about dollars. Yes, that’s right, if you ride a scooter, you will pay way, way less on gas, than on any other means of transportation (except a bicycle, that is just human powered). Scooterists often use their scooters for commuting and, in the process, they save a lot of money, as well as time, since they do not so often get stuck in traffic. Do you still need another reason for riding a scooter for fun or for going to work? Here is another: insurance. Insurance is much cheaper for a scooter and you can rely on a means of transportation without having to spend a pretty dollar, just because having something to help you get to where you want to go is thought of by the insurance people as some kind of luxury.

So, when you learn how to ride a scooter, you are opening a world of possibilities, to save money, to commute with ease, to find parking space with zero headaches, and so on. Plus, if you are joining a scooter club, you will find a lot of friends willing to go on fun trips!


My life and passion

Hi everyone! My name is Danielle Stevenson and I started this blog to share with you my adventures with the friends I made at my scooter club. I am currently the president of this club, so I am always challenged to find new ways to get everyone involved in some interesting activities. This blog is dedicated to documenting all the club activities, such as trips, rides and parties. At our club, we are always happy for new members, so I hope that others will join us as they learn more about the fun activities we are organizing here.


We have a wide range of regular activities, as well as some special events that only happen once in a while. The best thing I like about club activities is that we have so many occasions to mingle and get to know each other. Every Sunday, we have our regular rideouts, which are great for exploring the neighboring areas by scooter. Especially in good weather, these are great occasions for experiencing nature to the fullest. We also have regular meetups that do not resume only to riding our scooters. For instance, we share breakfast on Saturday mornings, and this is when we get to know each other better.


Then we also have something we call microadventures. The best part about microadventures is that we take trips to places we have never been before, so we have the chance to explore the unknown, while being surrounded by friends. Some of us even return to the places they liked best together with their families, so it is, for sure, a win-win situation.


We do not always ride away from home when we want to have fun. I am personally in charge of organizing scooter races that take place in local parks or on tracks that are suitable for such a purpose. There are even prizes we offer to those who come in first places, and, while they are only symbolic, they really make our members feel motivated to get better and get ahead of the competition.


Our most creative members have recently come up with an even more appealing idea: to have some of the scooters painted. A few works of art have already been created, and the said scooters look really cool, as we ride through the city streets and onlookers notice us. If you feel like you have a struck of genius and you are in the mood to paint a scooter, our club is more than happy to have someone like you around. For those who are only interested in riding for fun and are looking for ideas to get involved with their local scooter club, this blog will present plenty of great ideas, so you will have a great starting point, if you come here often.
