Rebecca has been writing about e-bikes for four years, after a typically ill-timed career change pre-pandemic. She's been riding bikes since she can remember, and fell back in love with them after realising it was faster, cheaper, and more fun than getting the bus to work. Nowadays she enjoys all kinds of bikes, from road to eMTB and is training her border collie pup to become a trail dog.

Escooters, with the best will in the world, do not mix well with either road traffic nor with pedestrians. They are basically a poor fit on roads and on pavements. The only way I see a safe future for them is if either motor vehicles are limited to the same speeds as scooters on roads they share, or motor vehicles are banned altogether in areas where escooters operate. Whilst I don't necessarily think either of those options is bad, neither do I think either will fly with the motoring public.
