When Simon Boaler steps aboard his Trikke uPT, a small crowd soon formed outside the Virgin MegaStore wondering what the businessman was riding.

The three-wheel scooter is not wholly dissimilar to the two-wheel versions favoured by the nation's teenagers but there is no need to keep propelling yourself along the road with one foot on this device.

And this is one reason Boaler, Managing Director of Sustainable Technologies – Division of Bond Group, uses this motorised scooter to get to work every day.
