OUR VISION

The purpose of Have A Go is to transition the world away from cars to greener, more fun, safer, and healthier forms of transportation.

We do this by featuring the best and most unique featherweight electric vehicles on the market today. We want to make non-car urban mobility fun and easy! We wouldn’t stop until we see an electric featherweight in every garage.

We aim to:

  • Educate people about this new class of personal mobility
  • Help folks select the right model that suits their needs
  • Get folks excited by highlighting the benefits of physical movement, saving money, fighting climate change, and having more fun!

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

Great engineering

Our product selection is currently limited because we are currently in beta.
Our selection will slowly expand, however:

  • Our featured products were selected after months of research and are some of the best products on the market today. If you don’t have the time to get super in-depth with research, Have A Go is the perfect place for you! But if you love choices and love getting into the nitty-gritty, we highly recommend the following site for electric bikes: https://electricbikereviews.com
  • And our selection will always be finite, limited to only the best-of products in each category.

WHAT’S UP WITH THE NAME?

WHAT’S UP

WITH THE NAME?

The name Have A Go was inspired by a TED talk by Sir Ken Robinson about education and creativity.

During his talk, he spoke about how children are naturally creative because they don’t experience much fear or shame when trying new things:

“Kids will take a chance. If they don’t know, they’ll have a go. They’re not frightened of being wrong.”

That phrase, have a go, stuck with us. It had a beautiful lightness and playfulness to it, especially considering the realities of the adult world we’ve created.

Wouldn’t it be great to experience what it felt like being a kid again, leaving the weight of the world behind?

Wouldn’t it be great if we just got on a bike, scooter, skateboard and just calmly moved around our cities, seeing other human faces, feeling the wind in our hair, and living in the moment for once?

The adult in you is now saying “Well, that’s unrealistic! What about the weather? What about long distances? What about the disabled?”

We hope to address those concerns with this site. But we also want to encourage you to think more like a kid again.

Let’s insert some fun into our lives!

Let’s be curious again.

Most importantly, let’s unfurl our collective brows at new ideas and brighter futures, let’s have a go and see how easy building a better future can be!
