Long walk to class? In a time crunch? Get to class on time without huffing and puffing across campus.
How, you might ask? Keep reading for the inside scoop!
1. Longboarding: For those of you new to the skateboarding game, longboards are the perfect place to start. Longboards have soft, rubbery wheels that slide across the pavement at your pace, giving you much more control than the rigid slippery wheels of a skateboard. A decent longboard to start out with can range from $25 to $75 and a great longboard that will be more reliable and durable could range from $150 to $225.
2. Skateboarding: Ready to step it up? Grab a skateboard! Skateboarding to class is pretty simple once you’ve master the balance required to wear your backpack as you ride. Taking your board to class is usually not a problem with most professors, just don’t plan any ridiculous grand entrances. A complete skateboard with deck, wheels, and all included could cost around $120 to $150.
3. Folding Bike: Have you seen these things!? They’re pretty much the coolest form of transportation on campus. They start out looking like a normal bicycle, but can fold in half to form a much more mobile type of transportation! A folding bike could run you anywhere between $100 and even $300. For the higher end folding bikes, expect to delve into the thousands.
4. Roller Skates/Blades: Roller skating might seem like a thing of the past, but it’s definitely coming back en vogue! Blading can be a bit more difficult to master than skating, but feel free to choose whichever you feel more comfortable with. They are small enough to throw into your backpack after you made it to class, making them one of the most convenient method of travel in this list. A decent pair of skates or blades could run you $100 to $300.
5. Razor Scooter: #THROWBACK! Who remembers whizzing around on a folding scooter as a kid? The colorful wheels and metal design made these childhood favorites. Bring this #TBT item back to campus! They still fold up easily and can be taken just about anywhere.
