Listen: Rory Reid on e-scooters

The pandemic has encouraged many of us to get outside, with over a third of Brits (35%) agreeing that travelling in the fresh air is preferable to public transport – almost half of us (42%) are walking more than ever before.

And it seems that we’re prepared to put our best foot forward to see our friends and family…but only if they live within a 2 mile radius (avg. 2.05 miles). It will also come as little surprise that Brits are prepared to walk over a mile (avg. 1.35 miles) to go to the pub!

Ironically, the shortest distance we’re willing to walk is to the gym – averaging just over a mile! (1.2 miles)

New research by e-scooter rental brand Dott reveals that the ways we’ve been travelling over the pandemic have completely changed…but we’d still only walk just over 2 miles to see loved ones…

Aston spoke to Rory Reid, TV presenter, motoring & tech expert to chat about the research, and give tips around safe scooter use.
