Look what can happen when you banish your fear of failing

  • 2 min read

Michael-John Perry aka The Plant Geek decided to banish his fear of failing and took his new Micro Flex Deluxe for a spin around NYC. He hasn't looked back since. Here's how he got on scooting the Big Apple...





"The last time I visited my energetic friend, Lorna Ko, she had a new toy. It was a scooter. Now, I hadn’t ridden a scooter since I was around 4 years old, and certainly hadn’t considered riding once at the age of 36. However, she encouraged me to have a go. After a few safety tips from Lorna (avoid potholes!), I was scooting around Chiswick and hooked on this free of charge, flexible transport system! We scooted right up to the door of our chosen bistro joint, quickly folded our transport and then tucked into some tapas and gossip.




Seeing the glee on my face, Lorna quickly got in touch with the guys at Micro Scooters and they helped me out with my own scooter, just in time for my 3 week trip to New York City! The model I chose had lovely big, BMX-style wheels too. This gave a faultless ride over the ups and downs of the New York grid system streets, and meant I could (potentially) tackle potholes with gusto,should they arise!




The very first outing for the scooter was actually on a star-spotting trip, as we chased down Madonna’s New York duplex! Stalkers? No! The location was a few km away, so this meant a bus trip. However, the Micro Scooter could be folded down super quick, and was as easy to carry as a briefcase! I bet Madonna was admiring my ride from her window that night. My Micro Scooter was also taken on a night-time Central Park jaunt! It’s amazing how much freewheeling you can get from just a few scoots with your foot! I also managed to conquer the braking system, which takes some nifty footwork, but once you get it, you get it! I would really recommend a Micro Scooter to anyone in an urban area, as you can save on public transport, and soak up the scenery whilst you scoot!! My model is a Flex Deluxe!"
