We know finding the perfect gift for Dad is a challenge, but don't worry Micro has got you covered this year. An adult scooter is a great gift for the family man to get in on the action with the kids. And once Dad's got one he can use it for his commute to work too... Take a read why a scooter will be the best gift yet.
1. The kids will love it
They'll love Dad to keep up on his own set of wheels and join in on the fun. Make it the new weekend activity that everyone in the family will enjoy. Being outdoors doing something healthy is a great way to spend quality time with the kids.
"The best about being a scooting dad is when I scoot with my son. It’s even better when we double ride (Luca on board with me). We snake up and down the driveway and pretend that we’re surfing." - Micro Dad Matthew
2. Save time travelling fast
Scooting is a efficient way to get from A-B quick, alone or as a family. Zip to the shops and cruise along the water front. Take the scooters in the car or on public transport to use on parts of your journey and you'll cut your walking time in half.
"It means I don’t have to park close to destinations or use expensive parking, I can actually park a little further away and grab the scooter out and ride it to wherever I am heading, with ease." - Micro Dad Cameron
3. Improve the commute
Commutes can be stressful and expensive. An adult scooter will let Dad speed up walking time, getting him quickly to and from meetings and getting him further on his lunch break. It's easy to use, quick to fold, lightweight to carry and take into meetings or stow under his desk.
"The scooter is great for the jobs that are just too far to walk to but not worth getting the car or bike out for. Grabbing the scooter is just so quick and easy" - Micro Dad Kingsley
4. Stay fit and feeling great
Using a scooter on your journey will give you a workout on the go. Scooting burns more calories than cycling, increases aerobic fitness plus upper and lower body strength. Get active with the kids and feel great doing a fun activity.
"Sometimes I get a ‘look’ from adults as I pass by while scooting. Yes I am a forty something year old on a scooter and yes I am having as much fun as it looks." - Micro Dad Kingsley
5. Keep hold of your change
Once you've got your scooter getting around is free! Cutting back on parking, public transport, fuel and taxis. Plus it's great for the environment, win, win!
