I came across this old Guardian article written back in 2012. The Trouble With Mobility Scooters I would think that not only does it still apply today but the attitude expressed in it is probably worse now 7 years later when there are even more....

One brilliant difference I am finding between riding a tricycle and riding a mobility scooter is the parking. When shopping with my trike I had to seek out the nearest bike parking then bend down, which was difficult with arthritic hips, and use two....

Who would have thought that being forced to go from riding a tricycle to riding a mobility scooter could gain one a friend. Well, this has happened to me. Whilst still being unsure about swapping from one to the other I looked out of my ground floor....

I had my first "Get on the Pavement" bellowed at me yesterday when riding to the local shops to carry back shopping and to give the scooter an airing after being unused since the cold weather has set in. Seemingly this shout out is not uncommon to....

I couldn't believe it when I woke up to a beautiful day this morning after all the wet, windy, or freezing cold days, or a mixture of all three, we have had for several weeks. Not only was it bright sunshine but also almost with a warm sun. So I wanted.

Well, I did the legal thing and sent off to register my scooter with the DVLA as mentioned on 19th October post. Today I received a letter back from them. Within the envelope were two letters each one from a different department. One department had....

After the few short test rides I have made to test if the batteries maybe old or new and having no problems, my friend, Margaret, and I made a 5 mile round trip today with our scooters down to our nearest Sainsburys super store. The charge in the....

One thing I have been a bit worried about, is being as how my scooter is only a medium sized 6mph scooter, is getting up hills with less power than a larger scooter has. Plus of course I am still not sure of how new or old the batteries are. So today...

There are three ways one can legally ride a class three mobility scooter. On the pavement, on a cycle path, and on the road. None of these are ideal or easy to use. By law when riding on a pavement one has to turn on the tortoise switch to guarantee...

So far the only money the scooter has cost me is £47:44 on bits for it. But the good news is that those bits will also serve any new scooter I buy in the future. So the money isn't wasted. Free: Scooter £19:99 Wrist Rear View Mirror £ 8:50 Control....

Gorgeous day today. I had to wait in for a delivery of a table/desk today, and as soon as that arrived I intended for Louie and I to take a ride out on the scooter. I'm also expecting a few bits to arrive for the scooter too. A rear view mirror....

We have had tremendously high winds this last few days and therefore I have stayed in doors and ignored the scooter and instead continued with my sorting, minimising, and organising my flat of which I managed to get a lot done. In the afternoon the....

Oh My Goodness! I now have a mobility scooter. Totally free. Charlie brought it over for me today. It's a very old Explorer 6 and only does 6mph but has cleaned up a treat. Charlie checked it all out for me, blew off the cobwebs and cleaned it up....

I think whoever invented the mobility scooter deserves a medal. When you think of how many people young and old that it's freed up from being constantly having to rely on others to get around, to being able to do so much again for oneself. Maybe I"m....

I can't believe my fortune. Living on an over 60s retirement complex as I do, we have several maintenance men working permanently around the site. One in particular, Charlie, has become what can now be classed a friend being as he pops in a couple of...

From Tricycle to Mobility Scooter, that is the question. 10 Years ago on becoming 60 years old I decided that I would treat myself to a tricycle to use as my only means of personal transport. You might ask why a tricycle and not a bicycle. I had....
