A onetime Staten Islander myself, the only two-wheeler I could take on the bridge to Brooklyn was my motorcycle. When I lived on Manhattan, Staten Island was a popular cycling spot (we took the Ferry), but Brooklyn is also a hotbed of bicyclists (and nowadays, no doubt, kickers), who would benefit greatly from a bike path on the venerable bridge.
Maybe some could hie on over to the rally.
The Olaf luggage scooter, featured recently on Scooter-Sport, has since been
spooted spotted (what was that? Dutch?) in the pages of I AM EXPAT, a Dutch general site for expatriates, and yesterday, the U.K. Daily Mail.
It has met and exceeded its Kickstarter goal and looks to be headed for production.
Judy Kosovich|Arlington Sustainable Living has an appreciation of scooters on examiner.com:
A push scooter (also known as a kick scooter) is a very handy, fast, inexpensive, pollution-free way to travel a modest distance in about one third the time it takes to walk. When you get to your destination, it collapses into something you can carry. You can get on the Metro during rush hour. You can take advantage of bike lanes, and often streets provide better surfaces for scooting than do sidewalks.
From Bicycling Magazine:
From Tour de France contenders to local club riders, cyclists are choosing wider wheels. Why, after a decade of rolling along smoothly on skinny rims, should we want fatter wheels, which measure up to 27mm wide? Turns out that those narrow rims, especially aero models, weren’t so smooth after all.
