Sometimes, the journey is really more important than the destination. In this list, we look at five modes of transportation every Bermudian has to have tried.
These little zippy cars are all the rage in Bermuda, with all the maneuverability of a moped, but safer to drive and with much more rain protection! What really distinguishes these cars is that theyre electric, producing no dangerous emissions that are damaging to the atmosphere. Running on electricity also makes them very cost effective, as you don’t have to pay for gas!
Even if you have your own transportation, try out a twizy today and look at Bermuda in a new light, zooming along in these compact, leisurely cars.
There’s no reason to wait until your wedding day to be transported by horse – jump on a trail ride today and you’ll be cruising on a horse’s back in no time. It takes a long time to master horseback riding, and indeed, dedicated sportsmen soon learn you do as much work as the horse! However, horseback riding is an unparalleled way to explore Bermuda – step back in time and pretend you’re one of Bermuda’s only settlers, using natural instead of mechanical transportation to get around.
You can go for a short ride at many stables around Bermuda.
If your family has boats, chances are you learned to drive that before you learned to drive anything else. Boats remove a lot of the fast speeds and compact spaces that create unsafe situations on roads, but many more things need to be taken in to account; like right of way, keel, chop, and reefs and other obstacles. If you’ve never traveled by boat, there’s an easy way to remedy the situation – living on an island, Bermuda boasts ferries as public transportation.
If you’re feeling more adventurous and you’d like to drive yourself, there are many places you can rent boats on island.
Much loved by tourists and locals alike in old Bermuda, bicycles are one of the best transportation methods for those of us who want to make the most out of getting from point A to B by including a work out. The hilly roads of Bermuda give cyclists a run for their money, and don’t contribute any pollution to the environment. Bicycles really complete your springtime aesthetic, so wear some high-waisted shorts and get cycling retro today.
The quintessential Bermudian transportation method, we’ve all tried out a moped, and probably fallen off one, at least once. These plucky motorized vehicles are perfect for Bermuda’s roads, being unable to break really high speeds, and being small enough to take tight corners. What they’re not perfect for is riding in the rain, in the hot sun, or if you have anything more than a backpack to carry, but that has never stopped us!
