"When Des bought his scooter, he also purchased increased mobility. We used to take slow strolls together as a couple. However, I get a much relished high from fast walks, as I find it elevates the spirit, improves the mood and tones the body.
That posed a problem: when I opted for long brisk walks, I experienced guilt on leaving Des at home. He kept busy with innovative projects of his own creation, but we both missed the “togetherness thing.”
Now we have it all! I walk quickly; Des rides his scooter. We both enjoy the outdoors now, benefiting from the scooter in two different ways—he as a rider; me as a walking companion.
We can “stop to smell the roses” and then accelerate to a brisk pace. And best of all, we do it together. Des’ scooter has changed our lives."
—Beth (and Des) Cooper
I used to think scooters were for someone with a disability, however I now know that they are very useful for any person, even if you have a car.
