Car vs. inline skates: racing through Zurich, part 2
Three stages, three everyday situations, two means of transport. First off, we’re heading from the digitec store to the recycling point to dispose of our empty bottles. Stage two takes us to the local supermarket and in our last stage, we’re picking up our friends and meeting up on Sechseläutenplatz. While Michael is taking the direct route on his inline skates, Simon in the SUV is moving no faster than 50 km/h.
Michael won the first stage. He got to the recycling point quicker. Now we’re heading to a supermarket on the other side of the city. Can Simon catch up?
Stage 2: shopping
After Simon lost the first stage, he’s eager to catch up. What works in his favour is that the destination is on the other side of the rail tracks, which means Michael is forced to take a detour. Having dais that, Michael can go down Langstrasse on his skates, while Simon has to drive all around it.
