If this is your first time, relax - riding a moped is fun & easy! First: All you need is a drivers licence and you need to be at least 16 years old. There cannot be anyone on the bike but you. Luckily we have plenty of scooters to rent out! They all come with a loud horn so other riders can hear you coming. They all come with a lock and helmet, along with storage under the seat. Always keep both feet on the ground and the break on when starting the bike. Next, place both your hands on the handlebars, feet on the ground, pull the break, push the start button and slowly squeeze the throttle with the first two fingers of your right hand.
As you begin, we recommend practice making turns at slow speed around the parking lot until you are comfortable with the sensation of your weight shifting with the moped. Stay inside the parking lot while you practice and avoid other cars, and curbs.
Safety Tip: Always stay on the right side of the road and in the bike lane as much as safely possible. Only drive in the road when you absolutely need to and be aware that street lights will not change for you, so get behind a car if possible. Be sure to stay aware of your surroundings at all times when you are riding your moped. If possible, go out on the road with a friend so that you will have help in case of an emergency.
A complete lesson and safety briefing is given. Everyone must wear a helmet. Your rental time won't begin until you start your machine. There is no rush, no hurry. Rental time begins when you start your machine. Anyone can do it, its fun and safe.
What is a moped?
Mopeds are a type of low-powered motorcycle designed to provide economical and relatively safe transport with minimal licensing requirements.
Is it safe to ride?
You CAN be injured by riding a moped. Moped's are relatively safe, but because they are so much fun, people tend to forget their safety so be careful. Scooter Town mandates that you wear a helmet for saftey, be aware of your surroundings - always look right and left as you ride - and most importantly, be safe & have fun! YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR INJURIES AND DAMAGE TO YOUR MOPED RENTAL.
Can you have two people on one moped?
That is a really good question. Unfortunately, riding more then one person on a 50cc moped is illegal. The moped is dangerous when you have more then one person on it at one time. It is important that you do not do this. The weight capacity is bad for the bike and harmful to you. We want you to be safe and have fun! But we do also rent 150 cc mopeds with a motorcycle licence and you can have a person on the back with anything larger then a 50 cc!
