TAKING THE CITY ON TWO WHEELS

Published by NORA DEJACO at September 12, 2017 in Articles

Last year, we spent a weekend in Barcelona. After a night out with too many beers and too few tapas, we simply had no more energy to shuffle along the city’s streets flitting from sight to sight the next day. Said and done, we just boarded a hop-on, hop-off bus and travelled around the city. At the end, we felt sick anyway and would’ve preferred to explore the city at our own pace.

As a visitor to Vienna, you almost habitually use public transport to get from A to B, you walk, you take a taxi or the mentioned sightseeing bus line. But there’s an alternative to bicycle rental services, public transport and car sharing services: now, there’s an option for motorcycle enthusiasts visiting the city, to explore the imperial Habsburg city on two motorised wheels. Mo2drive is a scooter rental service in Vienna which allows you to rent iconic Vespas throughout the city. A mobile app will let you locate a scooter in the city and unlock it easily through your smartphone. Then, there’s nothing stopping you from exploring the city on two wheels, avoiding traffic jams and overcrowded trams and buses.

We would’ve liked a similar service to discover the city on a motorbike during our stay in Barcelona – the wind in our face, experiencing the pace of the metropole and feeling like being part of the city you’re only visiting for a few days. Actually, anyone on a city break wishes for that: getting to know and seeing the city from the perspective of a local. However, it doesn’t quite work this way. At least in terms of travelling in Vienna, Mo2drive makes you feel at home a little bit more.

For people living in Vienna, getting annoyed by traffic jams or people in the tram who forgot to put on deodorant or munch a smelly kebab: try Mo2drive – maybe it’s the alternative you’ve been looking for the whole time :-)

For all the people who love to ride a motor scooter, we are giving away 2 vouchers, each worth a free registration and 50 free riding minutes + 25 parking minutes! Just answer the following question by email at media@riserapp.com: how many underground (U-Bahn) lines are there in Vienna?

The winners will be drawn at random from all correct entries received by Monday 17 September and will be notified by email!

CRUISIN’ AROUND AUSTRALIA: FROM WOLLONGONG TO MELBOURNE

Published by MOGI at July 20, 2018 in Articles
Heading from Wollongong, down the Princess Highway, all the way to Eden. Sounds like a long way but, there are heaps of stops on the way. It could take 8 to 12 hours to do it, if you really wanted to. But for me, I’ll cruise, I didn’t need to stop until Batemans Bay for fuel, already been there so I pushed on, through to Bega and a stop at the Yellow Peach Dam Rest Area, was awesome...

THE COUNTRY-, BLUES & WHISKEY MOTORCYCLE TOUR. GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN PT.2

Published by GINA DREWES at July 13, 2018 in Articles
I don't listen to country, rarely blues - and whiskey is not necessarily the drink of my choice. But how could I have said no to a route that has the same title and leads through the country where my Harley was born! Although I had not yet had the urge to explore America, this motorcycle route through the southern states aroused my curiosity.

A sunny day. The last few kilometers accompanied by our guides through Myanmar. The first limestone cliffs appear. From Kawkareik, a well-paved road meanders over the Tenasserim ridge. For the first time since leaving Western Turkey, the tires are clinging to undamaged and grippy asphalt. After 170km Mae Sot is reached, the border town to Thailand: from poverty to wealth. Thailand is an infrastructure and economic paradise.
