Bikes are good for exercise or a leisurely ride but bad for commuting. Scooter is the solution to still using bike paths but not getting sweaty on the way to work

bikes can't zip up hills after a long day's work (unless they're electric and then it's half scooter anyway)

It's also for people who need to get around town easily without being sweaty and smelly by the time they get there on a bike.

For a good many people, exercise is a byproduct of using a bicycle.

Technology is supposed to make our lives easier. Do you also consider dishwashers, washing machines, cars, tractors, bread makers, horse drawn carriages and anything else that's designed to make our life easier just for lazy people?

Sorry I don't want to be sweaty and stinky when going to class and sitting near people?

I'm avoiding getting an electric bike, because I don't want to be tempted. When I commute by bike, I'm doing it mainly for the exercise.

I agree, cars for long distances and bikes/feet for short distances

There also for bicycle People who don't want to leave their bike parked in the city over night, or for multiple nights. Or for bicycle people who missed the last bus. 99% of the time I use my bicycle but occasionally I'm really glad to rent a scooter.

I had a coworker who couldn't lift her feet more than an inch off of the ground when walking, usually it was less. A medical condition just made it literally impossible for her to walk normally, she probably could have gone on disability rather than working. An electric scooter noticeably improved her mobility and life.

No one's mentioning how much easier it is to take a scooter to/into places as opposed to a bike as well...

I believe beeing lazy is what drives us to work to get an easier solution for a hard job... if that makes sense.

I'd like to see you ride a bike up some of the hills I climb or ride 60kmh amongst traffic. 😅

I just don't get it, for short journeys you may as well walk. For longer journeys it is quicker and more comfortable to cycle. They are a blessing for people with certain disabilities but then so are mobility scooters. I have seen a couple of people who drop their kids off at school using one to get there and back. They have got noticeably fat in the last couple of years.

People that drive cars are lazy, then.

Well I use my electric scooter to get from my house to my work. I'm not trying to exercise, I'm trying to commute. When I want to exercise, I go to the gym and run a couple miles. Sometimes my friends and I will take our bikes up to the mountains and ride trails. I guess that's also exercise, though I do that when I want to socialize. But the electric scooter is simply for commuting, just like a car.
