Curious things, those Lime scooters.
In a month’s time, they’ve become ubiquitous, as they were last year, in downtown Spokane and beyond. Seemingly everyone is on board.
That’s not quite true.
“There are some people who want to learn more about these things, but maybe they’re cautious,” said Jonathan Hopkins, Lime’s director of strategic development for the company’s Northwest region.
To unlock the mystery, Lime is offering the Scoot Spokane First Ride Academy, which makes its debut Wednesday, June 12, at 6:30 p.m. in downtown Spokane.
Offered in conjunction with Spokane Parks and Recreation and Visit Spokane, the one-hour session will begin at the Riverfront Park Visitor Center.
The first 30 people who RSVP online will receive a free helmet and test rides, followed by a short ride to Kendall Yards.
Additional events are scheduled for July 10 and Aug. 14.
