Global warming & getting to sessions (fast) w/lower emissions using electric transportation.
I can usually get to my local sessions in a matter of minutes since venues are mostly w/in 1-2 miles. Usuallly I take my bicycle. Instruments are easy because I play flutes & whistles. For sessions farther away I car-pool. Though none of my current session mates drives a hybrid or electric car.
So I’m going to look into inline skates. They are buzzing around Chico (my home town) more & more. Has anyone strapped on a pair, how fast are they, can I find anything good for $200? Ideally I would like a max speed of 24kph/15mph. Considering all the environmentally friendly options for arriving @sessions. So if you have found ways to get yourself to session w/low impact I would love to hear how you did it. Cheers!
If you do not know about electric-powered inline skates here is a video of someone who made a DIY set which goes 45-50kph/28-31mph. I recommend clicking through the clip to get a feeling for how fast he is going. If you watch the entire video it’s not very interesting but if you realise how fast the skates are that is very impressive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGHlVn4ACc4
