This type of vehicle, called personal mobility, must follow a series of traffic regulations
The bicycle is one of the most practical and economic means of transport that we can use, both in our day to day and in the place of vacation rest. It is an effective form of transport, especially over short distances, and very ecological in the case of using its 100% electric variant. In the latter case, it allows for steeper and longer routes with little effort, a perfect option for visiting a city. The electric scooter has also become a fast, safe and reliable means of transport. For this reason, and taking advantage of the fact that there are increasingly safer infrastructures for pedestrians, cyclists and users of electric scooters, this type of mobility will save parking times, fuel, as well as spending on public transport tickets, for example.

General direction of traffic (DGT), which can be rented, but there are also several folding models that can be purchased and transported in the car or motorhome and used at the final destination, especially to reach those corners or landscapes that
on four wheels it is almost impossible to reach. Although for the more adventurous there are four-wheel options for hiking trails or reaching the peak of a mountain on rocky paths.
For this task, ATVs, like the
Kymco MXU 300They are the perfect companion. Very safe, robust and easy to handle without prior experience – a B car license is required – it is approved for two people and has all the necessary equipment and amenities. It has two front and rear luggage racks – with a load capacity of 20 and 30 kilos, respectively – and a 12-volt power outlet and USB input.
