Outdoor Activities for Families

Posted on: May 13th, 2013 by Pulse No Comments

Outdoor Activities For FamiliesIt is important for a family to spend time together and bond over a fun activity but sometimes as a parent you run out of ideas of what to do.   Too much time spent in front of the TV, computer or playing video games is not healthy for kids so it is up to you to get them involved in some new family activities that will keep everyone happy.  You can play outdoor games like kickball or dodge ball and if any of your kids are good at sports you can make separate teams and compete against each other.

If you don’t want to set up an organized game you can just do individual activities together like skating, freestyle scooters or biking on a trail.  A long ride on a kids scooter or bicycle can be good exercise while spending quality time together.  You can bike to the beach or the park and have more play time once you finally arrive.  You can pack some food and have a picnic outside or hang out on the playground with the kids.

Even though most people assume that hiking is more of an adult activity, there are plenty of easy hikes that are available for kids to enjoy too.  Look for a shorter trail without too much incline and you and your family can enjoy nature together and take in the view and the end of the trail.  A hiking trail with a waterfall or a river can be especially exciting for kids and adults alike.  Whether you play games, hop on a new scooter, or go on an easy hike your family will enjoy the time spent together and the chance to get out of the house and do something different.  Your family will feel closer after a long day outdoors in the sun.

The Spiritual Side Of Riding A Bike Or Scooter

Posted on: April 19th, 2013 by Pulse No Comments

Spiritual RidingPeople who opt to ride a bicycle, motorcycle, or scooter are often quite passionate about their transportation. Making the decision to give up on driving a car and choosing an alternative mode of transportation is a deliberate action. Ask anyone who has done this and they’ll be sure to have an interesting back story as to why.

Every year at a cathedral in New York City, bicyclists, scooter riders, and even children with wagons gather to have their wheels blessed. For many, the occasion marks the start of the riding season and gives them a sense of peace and safety as they once again take to the streets. And those streets can be mean, especially in New York City.

But these bike and scooter enthusiasts claim that their way of riding is the only way to truly experience the city and that it’s akin to a spiritual experience for them. For some of these riders, cars are the enemy and they would never go back to using the gas guzzling monsters. Other riders are less fervent about hating cars, but still say they would never give up their wheels. The riding experience surpasses any other means of transportation.

Performance Scooters: Not Just For Kids Anymore

Posted on: April 11th, 2013 by Pulse No Comments

Performance ScootersMany people of all ages are choosing to purchase a scooter for practical purposes. With gas prices constantly rising, many can no longer afford the cost of keeping their gas tanks full. For running errands or just making visits around your neighborhood, it’s not necessary to use your car. Investing in a scooter can be a great way to cut down on costs, and make running those errands a little more fun too.

Performance scooters may have been previously reserved for children, but now many adults can be seen riding them on streets across the country. Not only does it save you money on putting gas in your car, but it’s also a great way to get a workout. A scooter requires no fuel, just the power of your legs to keep it going. A performance scooter is fast, durable, and small enough to be stored just about anywhere. Several models are available to choose from. There are even electric scooters that require just a single charge to bring you up to 10 mph of speed.

Choose the type, model, and color scooter you like best and get ready to change the way you get around. You’ll look at transportation in a whole new way, and enjoy the sights and sounds of your neighborhood like never before. People will begin to take notice and perhaps even be inspired to purchase a scooter of their own. Scooters bring out the kid in all of us, no matter how old we may be.

Scooter Games And Education

Scooter GamesA New Approach To Education

Education is one of the main concerns of parents everywhere.  There is a large amount of concern that is devoted to the activities and studies that are done within the schools that we send our children to.

This is a just cause, we want the best for our children and are concerned about things that will shape their minds and make them more or less impressionable to certain aspects in life.  There is a new fad that is coming up that could change the way physical education is approached in schools.  Scooter games are slowly being integrated into physical education classes around the nation.

This is a great opportunity for children to grow and experience an outside the box type approach to physical education.  There are many children who have received scooters as presents for Christmas or their birthdays and what better way to utilize them than to have scooters games in P.E.?

Realistically there are many different ways that you can incorporate scooters into games within the curriculum and it is a great way for kids to stay connected and interested in what they are allowed to do.  The fact that schools are staying relevant is a great move and it seems to be a win-win situation.

Scooter SeasonSummertime is approaching and that means that there is going to be a bunch of different activities to get involved with.  What can you do during the summer you ask?  The answers seem to have no end!

When the sun is shining a beach visit is always fun, walking around the beach area can be an enjoyable time for all.  Pulse scooters zoom by as you are walking on the boardwalk enjoying the sun and the surf.  The beach is a great place to get some fresh air and let the sun warm you up as you marvel at the waves.  Skateboarders will cruise by as you walk to enjoy a wonderful outdoor meal and you like the look of the scenery.

During the summertime it seems life just is easier, the warmth is great but not overwhelming, and the fun times seem to be at your fingertips.  Seeing people on electric scooters makes you wonder where they acquired those interesting contraptions.  No matter, you have a date with the ocean ahead!  There truly is nothing like having a sunny beach day, it is a feel good type feeling that can be achieved during the summer time in epic fashion.

Summer can afford people the luxury to relax and enjoy the time that they have to work with.  Kids can play on scooters, adults can as well if they so choose, and the idea can permeate through to your very core.  The fact is, that when you are enjoying summertime life seems to just ease by and it is not as difficult as it probably has been during the winter months.

Especially if you are in a beach community, life is just good.  Finding the right way to spend your summer is not hard at all if you are interested in finding a not-so-serious way to spend your time.
