Question DetailsAsked on 8/29/2013

where can i buy an Amish kick scooter bicycle for the best price like the ones i saw In Lancaster Pennsylvania?

I went on vacation with my wife and daughters to the Amish town in Lancaster Pennsylvania and enjoyed what we saw and experienced with the simple way of life the Amish people have been living.. We also saw something we never saw before. An Amish kick scooter bicycle that was being used to travel by the Amish people. We drove to a near by hardware store because that's where they said we could find them. They were there alright but we could not afford the price they were asking.. As soon I we got home we started searching the internet for who also had them at reasonable price. We have a bike path in our neighbor hood that goes for miles through scenic routes and what better way to spend some good quality time together as a family. we would enjoy riding the kick scooters as well as getting a good work out together. I also know that we would take good care of them for many years to come. We still can not seem to find them for a good price we can afford. It has been hard times for us.

You can google this search phrase for a number of sources, mostly or all in Amish country - Amish kick scooter bicycle

I think you will find that the kids will not like it or use it much more than a cheap Walmart scooter - and "scooting" is a lot of work, just like people (including our kids) found out with in-line skates - look how fast that died off.

To really enjoy bike trails, unless you intend to drive a ways to a different starting point or trail every time, kids (and most adults) get tired of a given trail after about 2 times, so you need a real geared bicycle if you want to really enjoy bike trails to any extent.

Regular scooters for kids about $30-50, bikes for kids/adults about $100, but both about $10-20 at thrift stores or Salvation Army type stores for perfectly good ones - just remember to check the tires and brakes.

Good luck, enjoy your exercise, and may you meet no bears or moose on your trails, as is common on ours.
