Hey all -- so, some of you know, I just got my Pint this past Monday, and up until today I would say I'd spent about 30 minutes on it, mostly just getting used to balancing in my front yard and riding (slowly) back and forth across a concrete pad in my back yard (a distance of about 10 feet or so). My front yard is super lumpy from tree roots, so I quickly became frustrated with that, which is why I ended up moving to the concrete pad. Anyway, not a lot of riding before today.
This afternoon, I suited up in all the padding I have (helmet, wrist guards, elbow and knee) and walked 4 blocks or so to a nearby park to see if that would be a better, bigger place to learn how to get going at a bit of speed while simultaneously being safer than just taking to the street.
Let me just say: I AM IN LOVE. i had NO trouble getting up and going, and i ended up riding back and forth, up and down this big rectangular grassy area for about 45 minutes at a decent speed -- apparently 10.3mph, according to my app. After that, I felt so good and confident that I took it to the street and rode the 4 blocks home, going in both the street and up ramps onto sidewalks, and then when I got home, I went around the block twice, just because, haha. I ended up using about 60% of my battery in the process. Can't wait until tomorrow evening!
