With all the different methods of transportation out there these days, you probably thought that San Diego couldn’t handle yet another motorized scooter company. But unlike the controversial Birds, Limes and Lyfts, Rydables is providing an option that can’t help but make you smile. 

Seven years ago, Shane Dahlen started Rydables in Phoenix, Arizona — electric, battery-powered carts covered in the “skins” of your favorite stuffed animals — as a fun activity for kids 10 years old and under to enjoy at the mall. While children jumped at the chance to ride a tiger or a zebra, so did another, slightly unexpected customer: fully grown adults.

“We ended up having a lot of adults asking if they could pay us $20 to take it for an hour and ride it around the mall,” Dahlen said. “We laughed it off for a first few weeks, but the requests and the interests kept coming.”

After some experimenting and realizing there was a market for Rydables outside of shopping malls, Dahlen and his business partner started designing the cars for adults and for longer use both outdoors and indoors. The current models are multi-terrain capable, hold 400 pounds, and can reach up to 7 miles per hour both forwards and in reverse. Rydables are classified as an Americans with Disabilities Act-complaint mobility scooter and come with an anti-roll, hill lock feature to prevent unwanted rolling when stopped on an incline or hill. 

While there are over 60 animal “skins” to choose from, Dahlen said they’re currently developing 12 new aquatic-themed Rydables — like sharks, whales and sea turtles — specifically for their new San Diego market. Rydables are currently available for rent at Bicycle Discovery in Pacific Beach for hourly, daylong and even weekend rentals. We Love Tourists also offers Rydables out of its Downtown location for its 1 1/2-hour tour of the Gaslamp District for $49 per person.

“It’s fun for all ages,” said James Russel, owner of We Love Tourists. “The Segway tours are 14-and-older to ride, and you have to be able to stand for a long period of time. Whereas the Rydables, small children can ride on their parents’ laps. 

“As we cruise around, they’re a lot more noticeable. Even if you’re not riding one, they seem to bring a smile to everyone’s face.”

some times we just need to give a try to herbal Medicine to see for our self. I am very happy today that i didnt listen to what people say if not i would have been a dead lady by now. I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2015, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay. One day I was in the office thinking where I can go to get solution. so a lady walked to me telling me why am I so sad and i open up all to her telling her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduce me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS, HIV, HPV and many more disease and she gave me his email, so i mail him. He told me all the things I need to do and send me the herbal medicine through courier delivering service and also gave me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after 2 weeks, the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got vanished and blister dried off . I went to the hospital for a test and it was negative. this man is real and he is the solution to herpes virus. so if you are also heart broken and also need a help, you can also email him (call or whatsapp 2348151937428) according to this great DR he can also cure HIV, ALS,CANCER, COLD SORE AND DIABETES,ETC.

Hello all online viewer ,,,, HERPES AND HIV to heal

Does anyone still doubt natural herbal medicine? I have seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people’s lives. I wonder why people are still spending their money on surgery, injections and medications that can not cure you completely. Natural herbs can cure all kinds of diseases, including herpes, diabetics, asthma, HIV, hepatitis, ALS, etc. I saw it with my own eyes. I was cured of HIV and my aunt and her husband were cured from the herpes virus and tested negative after using herbal medicine. I ‘ have also been healed from HIV and tested negative to HIV after using herbal medicine by Dr. HAZIM who uses natural herbs to heal different types of diseases. Even Dr. Sebi proves to the world that natural herbs can cure all diseases and has cured countless people using natural herbs. I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm in trying herbal medicine. Contact or write Dr.Hazim on: ( or (phone / whatsAPP no): 23409058026857

testimony on how a powerful spell caster cured my HIV disease, i was

diagnosed of this disease, in the year 2009, last week i saw a testimony on

Dr.Akioya on how he cured an HIV patient, so i contacted him through phone
