Summer is in full swing which means we’re in the thick of scooting season! Lather on the sun block because we’re challenging you to 30 days of scooting!
We’ve all heard about the benefits of an active lifestyle, but what really counts is a consistent exercise routine. Even for kids! Get in the healthy habit of moderate exercise daily with the perfect form of light exercise-- riding your scooter! Whether it's a Micro Mini or a Maxi, you can get plenty of exercise out and about.
From the local playground, to a loop around the block, or a friend’s house, consider your Micro Kickboard scooter before you reach for the car keys and see if you can complete our 30 days of scooting challenge!
We’ve made a sample calendar with 30 ideas of things to do and places to go with your scooter. Make your summer super fun with these scooting ideas!
Here’s what’s on our list:
