This came about from a quick Facebook chat with Colin who works near Darling Harbour in the Sydney CBD:
"So here's my story in brief. 50 + overweight, decided to do something about it. So I have been intermittent fasting for over two months and decided to go back to scootering to assist the weight loss. Have lost 20+ kilos and gone down 3 pants sizes. I'm not one for exercise for it's own sake and cannot run (blow out the knees probably), so commuting is a way to exercise with a purpose."
"Arrived 10 minutes ago. Well done Sendle and Xootroz.
It's peeing down rain in Sydney at the moment ...
But everyone in the office has had a scoot."
Cheap K-mart skate helmet, $25, Seems pretty solid though.
Also attached a Go Pro to it and filmed my daily commute."
"This is the view from my office"
"A short length of knotted paracord and we are nice and secure on the train."
You can watch a short video of Colin's commute from Lime Street to Wynyard Station which shows the fast, smooth ride of the Mg below.
