Thetraveljunkie.org – Electric scooters have become more affordable in recent times and now cities around the world are trying to find more sustainable and safer ways for people to electrify the daily commute. Not only are they fun to ride, but they’re also a great way to see Point Nepean National Park and are environmentally friendly. Point Nepean is one of Victoria’s most beautiful natural landscapes. Point Nepean’s rich history has played an important role in shaping the early settlement, quarantine and defence of Victoria. The park is 560 hectares located at the tip of the Mornington Peninsula. Scenery includes outstanding coastal and panoramic views of Bass Strait, the Rip and Port Phillip Bay.
Point Nepean National Park is part of an Aboriginal cultural landscape in the traditional Country of the Bunurong People. Parks Victoria respects the deep and continuing connection that Bunurong Traditional Owners have to these lands and waters, and we recognise their ongoing role in caring for Country.
Explore military forts and tunnels, learn about the people who passed through the Quarantine Station – and see fascinating artefacts spanning back over 150 years. View the site and memorial where Prime Minister Harold Holt went missing while swimming at the nearby Cheviot Beach.
E-scooters are a great option for people who want to commute quickly, efficiently, and minimize contact with others. The way we think about public space has dramatically changed, and while some things will eventually go back to normal, the world will never be the same place it once was. Technology and electric vehicles are the way forward for a better way of commuting.
Here’s the safety gear for riding an e-scooter:
01). Helmet. Never leave the house without your helmet. It doesn’t matter if you’re going for a two-minute ride or a two-hour ride, you should never step onto an electric scooter without a helmet. If you own a bike helmet, you can wear that. For better protection, moped helmets are great because they are heavy duty and more durable.
02). Gloves. Electric scooter gloves are another way to protect yourself. When people fall, it’s their natural reaction to put their hands out to take the impact, which is why gloves are a great idea.
03). Clothing. Apart from head gear, you should wear long-sleeved clothing to protect your arms and legs. If you happen to fall off your electric scooter, you’re much less likely to injure yourself if you’ve got protective clothing on.
Remember to park your e-scooter well:
01). Don’t leave your e-scooter where it might obstruct other people walking or cycling.
02). Try to park it in a tidy manner and so it is convenient for the next user.
03). Try not to leave it somewhere where it may get damaged.
Just a note, if you are thinking of coming please leave no trash behind. And take with only memories, photos and videos. And, so always wear a helmet!
Wishing you all a wonderful day!
Happy Sustainable Travels!
