Yedoo on the Ride
On our way home from the Tour de France, many of our team promised to themselves to ride their scooters more often - even to work. A day without feelings of joy and freedom experienced through riding scooters - this we could not even imagine back then. But over time, although we are a scooters producer, we got back to our routines. You know it: too much work; raining cats and dogs weather; family obligations, lack of sleep, coughs, running noses, etc.
For Joy and a Healthier Planet
But we will try to change it this year. Our participating in the motivational national competition Biking to Work in which societal motivation adds to the personal one should help. Perhaps even the fact that last year´s competitors, having reached the number of 7 280, rode so many kilometers that they would have circled The Earth thirty-five times. If all of them went to work by car, they would have produced about 212 tons of carbon dioxide, 1 ton of carbon monoxide, 49 kg of dust particles which bind lots of substances damaging to our health and the environment. Will you join?
Scooter as a Prize
We donated a scooter Yedoo City New as a prize for the category CREATIVITY. That could be a good motivation. The best ideas are born in our heads in moments when we do not strive, when we leave all our duties behind and enjoy the pleasure, pleasure of riding a scooter, perhaps. Then new ideas jump into your head almost by themselves. It can be a poem or a picture. You can record a video or draw comics. Imagination has no limits.
