Which are NOT bikes, cars or any public transport (unless it’s a boat, that’s interesting)

Any closet scooterers out there willing to fess up? Hoverboardists, rollerbladers? I’ve been known to zoom to and from work on a skateboard because I am a big big man child. And it’s really fun.

Piggyback


#3

Used to ride around on a longboard as a teen, must’ve looked such a prick


#4

Skipping


#5

Peasant wagon


#7

snake board


#8

Imagine being an adult who’s given up on life enough to use a micro scooter to get to work.


#9

my mother in law (70) uses one of these every now and again. have never seen it in action but must be pretty brilliant to watch.

ILLEGAL


#12

Are they actually?


#13

Adults on skateboards and/or scooters want locking up.


#14

Can’t use a powered vehicle on a pavement unless it’s licensed, like a mobility scooter, I believe.


#15

Thought you were talking about the trousers. Carry on.


#16

And you also obviously can’t use them on the road since they’re not licensed / have any safety features like indicators, brake lights etc. Like Segways. You can only really use them on private property.


#17

And those bikes where people lie down on their back


#18

A recumbent?

They’re much better if you have lower back or limb issues.

A friend of mine has started using a hand-operated one after being paralysed from the waist down in an accident.


#19

They’re good for people with some disabilities though.


#20

Quite like to get into rollerblading you know. Pretty decent way of getting about. Although the pavements are often too crowded for 'em round here.


#21

I travel exclusively using heelys.
