Just before Christmas, I came off my Vespa GTS250 and wrote it off. I’ve been riding bikes since I was 16 (47 now) and have limped away from a few inevitable accidents. But, this time, I sat in a cafe and took time to reflected upon what might have been. I wasn’t badly hurt but what about the next time…?
Once I got the bike towed to a bike mechanics, I got onto the nearest tube and continued my journey onto work. ) As I was making my way past Carnaby Street, a Twizy with a Union Jack wrap drove by me. I’d never seen anything like it before and found myself hopping as fast as I could to see if I could catch up at the next junction.
Before I go out and get another scooter, I’d like to see how practical it would be for me to replace it with a Twizy. I live in Ealing and commute into Piccadilly Circus everyday (20 miles round trip). I often work 12 hours shifts so parking is one of my main concerns. Apart from that, I use it to do various errands around London.
I’d be grateful to hear from anybody who uses their Twizy for their London commute. Where do you park? Do you have to keep moving your Twizy after 4 hours? How much does it cost? Is it easy to find and use the charging posts? etc etc.
Thank you in advance
