Electric bikes and scooters are the trendiest new way to get around while the weather is warm.
The bikes put a spin on traditional bike riding, adding an electric element that puts less pressure on you to pedal, allowing you to carry heavier loads, take farther trips without tiring out and arrive at your destination less sweaty and wiped out than if you had to handle hills all on your own.
Similar to electric bikes, electric scooters are a blast to ride and make zipping through the neighborhood a breeze. With scooters, the only thing you’ll need is a bit of balance and that’s it, as there is no pushing or pedaling required.
Be it bike or scooter, make sure they have a full charge and you have a helmet and then hit the road. See below for a wide range of options for both, including traditional-looking bikes, mountain bikes, adult scooters and options for the kiddos, too.
