Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try

From the Taranaki Daily News (New Zealand):

An unofficial world record breaking kick scooter attempt has fallen short, but no one seemed to be that concerned.

More than 489 scooter riders needed to muster at New Plymouth’s Te Rewa Rewa bridge and scoot to 3.2 kilometres to East End Reserve on Saturday for the city to break its own Guinness Book of Records record for the world largest kick scooter parade.

It didn’t quite get there but organisers weren’t too worried with the unofficial attempt falling short, saying it was still a good way to have a fun and celebrate how more and more kids choose to get to school.
