Why Spring Is the Perfect Time to Explore

Spring is a season that beckons us to venture outdoors, to breathe in the fresh air, and to embrace the wonders of nature. It's a time of renewal and rejuvenation, making it the perfect season for exploration. And what better way to explore than with a folding mobility scooter by your side? Our range of folding mobility scooters, including the Lupin, Ren, and Zinnia series, are designed to enhance your outdoor experiences, providing you with newfound freedom and independence.

Navigating Rainy Weather with Confidence

When it comes to rainy weather, preparation is key to ensuring a smooth and enjoyable ride on your folding mobility scooter. Here are some practical tips to help you stay dry and confident:

  • Choosing the Right Attire: Invest in waterproof clothing and accessories to keep yourself dry and comfortable during your outdoor excursions. Consider using a folding mobility scooter poncho to shield yourself and your folding mobility scooter from the rain while keeping your hands free to operate your scooter.
  • Preparing Your Scooter: Protect your folding mobility scooter from the elements by using waterproof covers and following proper maintenance tips. Regularly check for any signs of wear or damage, and ensure that your scooter is in optimal condition for your adventures. 
  • Choosing Suitable Routes: Be mindful of pavement conditions and choose routes that are less likely to flood or accumulate puddles. Avoiding uneven or slippery surfaces will help you navigate safely and smoothly, even in wet weather conditions.
  • Being Visible: Enhance your visibility on the road by wearing reflective gear and equipping your folding mobility scooter with lights. This not only ensures your safety but also helps other road users to see you more clearly, reducing the risk of accidents.

Embracing Springtime Adventures

At Betty and Bertie, we're inspired by the stories of individuals who have embraced springtime adventures with our folding mobility scooters. Take, for example, Val Brown, who shares her experience with the Lupin folding mobility scooter:

"I have had my Lupin scooter for 2 months now. In that time, I have taken it on holiday to Antigua. I was able to ride it right up to the aeroplane and then it was put in the hold. When I got to Antigua, they brought it to the aeroplane to ride through the airport. I bought an air-safe battery for this journey. The scooter is great to fold up and put into cars and taxis so travelling is easy... Betty and Bertie were very helpful when I visited them to purchase the Lupin scooter, and they answered any questions immediately that I asked after I purchased it. Well done Betty and Bertie and thank you for designing a lightweight scooter I can take anywhere that I want to go."
