So this isn't precisely about bicycles but it's pretty close, right? Please point me to a more relevant Stack Exchange forum if there is one.
I am trying to optimize my daily commute. I usually walk slightly over a kilometer (slightly under a mile) to the station I depart from and about the same distance from the station I arrive at to my destination.
There are buses, but those are a bad option due to heavy traffic. I can rent a city bicycle for my "home - station" segment, but not for the other segment. So I settled on bying a... "personal transportation device"? (is there a word for it?)
There are lots of them on the market: skateboards, bikes, electric skateboards and electric bikes, roller blades, Skyrunners, waveboards and longboards, scooters... I need to pick one that is
- Fast (my goal is cutting travel time, after all)
- Small, so that I can take it with me on a train. Moscow Metro doesn't allow bicycles, because this.
What would be my best bet?
