National Scooter Day 2019 in Chicago

Each year we celebrate National Scooter Day on May 19th, and this year we went all out! Hosting National Scooter Day across the USA, Micro was present in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. In this blog post, we’re recapping our day at the Maggie Daley Skating Ribbon in Chicago!

The Maggie Daley Skating Ribbon offers Micro scooter rentals (along with rock climbing and roller blades) during the summer months. Mini's, Maxi's, Sprites, Cruisers, and Adult Scooters are available to rent. This made the location a no-brainer when we were considering where we should host our celebration. Chicago’s enthusiasm for Micro is nearly unmatched!

Located in the heart of Millennium Park, Maggie Daley Skating Ribbon is the go-to for in-the-know Chicago families. Looking for the best summer activities for kids in Chicago? Maggie Daley is where it’s at!

Team Micro brought the fun with lots of scooter customization options. At our accessory bar, kiddos could choose from scooter bells, scooter lights, Micro mini bags, scooter streamers, and more!

Our on-site helmet customization artist was a hit! Available to add names, designs, and more to helmets, families were able to get their creative juices flowing and keep their kids safe with helmets that are totally unique.

Speaking of keeping kids safe, do you know if your child’s helmet is the right fit? Our Micro experts were on hand to measure head-size and make helmet recommendations. This was one of the most popular elements of our event!

Not only were we recommending helmets, we offered scooter suggestions from our most popular models! From questions about kids sizing up, to which scooters are best for parents, our Micro experts were on hand to answer all of your scooting dilemmas!

The real highlight of the day? Scooting on the ribbon! Despite an on-and-off heavy rain forecast, we were thrilled to see so many families come to Maggie Daley to celebrate National Scooter Day in the intermittent sunshine. Many families brought their own scooters, and it was great to see Mini and Maxi masters at work!

With getting from point A to point B in Chicago often lasting block after block, it’s clear that Chicago’s kids have plenty of scooter experience! We were impressed with lots of little scooter pro’s and excited to see them taking their Micro’s for a ride around the ribbon.

While we wished the rain held off, we called the day an overall WIN! Meeting your Micro families and helping kiddos add some flair to their scooters and helmets was the perfect way to spend National Scooter Day (rain or shine!). We’re planning a return visit to Maggie Daley in the near future. Get ready Chicago!
